    Since I have 4gb actual ram, I figure that Ill stick to using 4gb readyboost to match.
    Do you actually use that much RAM?

    I've tried using both 1 an 2 flash drives with capacities of 4GB and 16GB. I can't tell any difference at all (but, then, I've got 12GB of RAM to begin with).

    Yes no more 4 GB limit, and now you can use multiple devices.
    What do you mean...no more 4GB limit??? I have a 16GB stick and the slider value to set up the Readyboost will not go any higher than 4GB.

    Perhaps it is not implemented yet.

    I had been using a 4gig stick with Vista Ultimate and the light inside the stick was always flickering. The same stick now hardy ever light up, but it does a little at boot, and cannot figure out the difference, or even if it is working. ReadyBoost has been enabled for that drive Anyone else notice this?

    Thanks!
    Check your BIOS boot sequence. If you have USB enabled and before hard drive, it will always check any USB device plugged in for boot directions.

    Build 7077 allowed me to use the free 12GB on my SD card, although I'm only using 4GB.

    I am having problems with readyboost. I will enable the 2GB flash drive. It has enough speed. Everything runs fine for a while. Then it says there is not enough space to use it because there is a READYBOOST file on the stick? I have to format it and enable it again. I am going crazy trying to figure out what to do. It keeps quitting. Has anyone else seen this?

    Vista Readyboost was not a vanilla for those with Ram 512+...they meant it to use for boosting system with low spec...any idea for win7?
