    can be done with any USB stick using the following. This was posted by a member I forget the name but have kept a copy for reference
    1. Let Vista test is, and check the Do not Retest this device checkbox.
    2. Unplug the device
    3. Go to regedit
    HKEY_local_machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EMDMgmt
    4.find the key related to you device (the device vendor and name is in the key)
    5. Change the follwing values:
    Device Status 0x02
    ReadSpeedKBs 0x1000
    WriteSpeedKBs 0x1000
    6. Plug the device, right click on it to open properties and enable cache
    I do not own Vista but apparently it is easy to enable readyboost by doing this :-
    1. Plug in the device.
    2. Open the Readyboost tab on the device properties.
    3. Select "Do not retest this device"
    4. Unplug the device
    5. Open regedit (start->run->regedit)
    6. Expand - HKLM (Local Machine)\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\EMDgmt
    7. Find your device.
    8. Change Device Status to 2 decimal
    9. Change ReadSpeedKBs to 1000 decimal
    10. Change WriteSpeedKBs to 1000 decimal
    11. Plug in the device.
    12. Enable Readyboost
