Changing Vista to allow any USB flash drive for ReadyBoost

ReadyBoost is a feature from Windows Vista that allows you to plug in certain types of flash drives to boost your speed by adding that to your RAM. Unfortunately, some of the older flash drives are denied because the read/write speed is too slow. No fear! Windows Vista Magazine has a quick howto on changing a few simple registry entries to allow those older drives. Don’t forget to backup your registry before you go dabbling in it. What’s interesting about this procedure is that you might even be able to change some external hard drives to be used for ReadyBoost. After all, you’re basically tweaking read/write settings. Hmm…
