hi i have fixed my issue of upgrading from xp in my last post

i just upgraded ram and installed vista

i was wondering if my sandisck cruzer blade is compatible with readyboost in vista

When you plug it in, Vista will tell you (in the drive's Properties) whether it can be used for Readyboost.

I tried using Readyboost with several USB flash drives, but gave up as it didn't seem to make any noticeable difference. I believe it needs to be a drive with very fast read/write speeds to function.

You can only try it and see. The flash drives I had obviously weren't fast enough, but it wasn't something I considered worth pursuing.
