I have one thing to ask. I have a Sony UX390N with SSD so do I need to use ready boost cause SSD is already fast?

Hi all,

I have a ux380n and I have a 4g sandisk extreme II. Readyboost will not work if it is formatted as Fat32. I formatted it as NTFS and it works fine. Anyone else experience this. I'm running vista ultimate sp1.

Thanks

Well I ran a benchmard on the sandisk ultra II and it says 8.4 MB/s. It is supposed to be 15 MB/s. Either the card is defective or it is counterfeit. I can write 4gb of data onto it, but the card is slow. I have reinstalled the drivers for the card reader and got no difference, I even put the registry entry updates on it, still the same. I think it is counterfeit, I got it off of ebay and the guy does not want to allow me to return it. I will contact samsung to see if they can help. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Does Ready Boot really work or is it a gimmick?

Postby RocketMan » Fri Jun 13, 2008 07:07

I have a UX380 and I put a brand new 4gig Sony MSD and it will not work formatted as Fat32 or as NTSF. It is strange that this same MSD will work in my Vaio CR under Fat32 and it worked fine. I saw some of the MSD in the store that had the "ready boost" approved logo. Does the "Ready Boost" really make a difference or is it another Microsoft gimmick? :cool:

Update for the "working" list at the beginning of the thread. I just got a Sony Pro Duo Mark2 16GB that works for readyboost. It's working under Fat32, is there any reason to format to NTSF or should I leave it be? Also, I'm wondering if it's overkill letting it use 4Gb for the readyboost or if I should scale that back a bit to be able to have more storage on the drive.

Any suggestions?

I think I read somewhere that anything above 2GB for readyboost is a waste. BTW how much did you pay for that 16GB card?

Thanks for the readyboost tip. The card is $179 w/free shipping at bestbuy.com right now. Regular price is $199.
