ReadyBoost/Pen Drives

I have both an OCZ Diesel 16GB & a Corsair Flash Voyager 16GB pen drive, and if I attempt to use ReadyBoost with either, is says that they don't meet the performance requirement for ReadyBoost. How would anyone know what pen drives do?

I just had the same problem with a 16gb Kingston USB Flash drive yesterday

I have not tested it out, but here is another angle to consider.

I have a Corsair Flash Voyager 8GB, initially it said it was not compatible, after that I clicked the test again button, and then it said it would work. Did you try this?
