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 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?

I keep popping this event. It happened when cache was at 2xxxxx so I increased it, doubled its size. Now its full again???? I use SSD's so superfetch is disabled. But per MS, I have left prefetch enabled. If I disable prefetch, what are the consequences?
