    Readyboost for vista 64 and PE7

      Does anyone out there use Readyboost with flashdrives or thumb drives? Does it make a different when using PE7. I have an I7 266 and 6 gigs of ram

          For those not familiar with Readyboost, the following link will provide some insight:

          Results will vary widely, as many USB Flash Drives, are not all that they are cracked up to be (speed wise). And Readyboost performance is contingent on small fragmented files, NOT large contiguious files (similar to video).

          I doubt you will see any boost with any video editing software.

          Also, you can read the following review, it will surely leave a bad taste in your mouth:
