Problem configuring readyboost to recognise an 'approved' Transcend 4GB SD card
Posted on 2008-10-01
I am trying to use Vista's 'ReadyBoost' facility to speed up this disappointingly slow laptop. On the advice of Orcalogic I have installed a 4GB Transcend SD card (150x speed) which they say is compatible with Vista ReadyBoost. However, when I insert the card into the built-in slot in the laptop and test it for ReadyBoost compatability it reports back that "This device does not have the required performance characteristics" to enable it to speed up the system.
Please can anyone suggest a fix ? What are the ReadyBoost "performance characteristics ? and does the SD card need formatting in a particular way etc. All help appreciated. Thanks, Will
