You are right, we don't see many USB Drives advertised for use with Ready Boost, but actuality its just a specifications requirement and any USB flash drive that meets them may be used...

The device must have an access time of 1 ms or less.

The device must be capable of 2.5 MB/s read speeds for 4 KB random reads spread uniformly across the entire device, and 1.75 MB/s write speeds for 512 KB random writes spread uniformly across the device.

Windows 7 allows up to eight devices for a maximum of 256 GB of additional memory.

Worth noting that the addition of a SSD drive has removed the need or ability to use Readyboost in my system. Not really much of a loss but before adding the sata III SSD I did enjoy some increase with a quick 4gb sd card even though my system has 8gb of ram. The sd would light up on many tasks !

I have a scan disk 8GB It is a 2.0 high speed USB drive. It works with my ready boost. I was wondering. It says that I can use a maximum of 4GB. But I read some where that you can use it all by checking the dedicate this device to ready boost. Is that true. Also if I do dedicate it to ready boost. Will it work around the files i do have saved on my USB already. It is not very much at all it is 80 Kb's of files that is it.
