I put a finalized game iso in a dvdr drive and right clicked, chose properties. Can you believe there is a readyboost tab there lol and I still can't get my flash memory to use readyboost on 7022.

maybe they figure it really does not make much difference?

I have been testing it with and without and so far have not really noticed any increase in speed.

maybe for those systems that have 512mb of ram might see something...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

I am using ReadyBoost on two Windows 7 (build 7000) systems. One difference with Windows 7 over Vista seems to be that Windows 7 will not suggest (no ReadyBoost tab) using a memory device it deems unworthy. My experience tells me that if I plug in a ReadyBoost worthy SD card, I will be offered to use ReadyBoost, otherwise, no offer.

As far as ReadyBoost being worth the effort at all - I use ReadyBoost on my main production machine (Vista Ultimate) and while it's not noticable in many applications, I have one application I regularly use for photography where it makes a dramatic difference. The way I noticed that is when the USB thumb drive I was using for ReadyBoost wore out. Yes, folks, they wear out. I was wondering why it was taking so damn long for this application to come up and work until I figured out the thumb drive had gone south. I replaced it and the speed was back. Instead of taking up to 30 seconds to come up and be ready to work, it was taking about 2 seconds, as it used to. So I say it works.

Bye.

Interesting. I guess I have not noticed in a program like that. Maybe I should try out some really demanding programs.

Windows Se7en Ultimate Beta x86 Build 7057
 
 

I used readyboost when I loaded 7 onto my old Dimension desktop with 512mb of ram.

Needless to say the performance benefit was noticeable. I've read that once you have 2gigs of RAM or more its usefulness becomes increasing negligible.

My memory stick/readyboost was working fine in vista/7 b7000 but not present in 7022.
