    Does R1F's internal reader able to use the ReadyBoost feature?
    Which SD card would be fast enough to qualify?
    If you already have a 2GB of ram, would there be any benefit to use ReadyBoost?


    Thanks in advance,

    Your built in card reader will work with ReadyBoost. You need to get SD cards that are fast ...

    According to the people who invented ReadyBoost these are the requirements

    "2.5MB/sec throughput for 4K random reads and 1.75MB/sec throughput for 512K random writes"

    from

    Tom Archer's Blog

    You can read more about the feature on the link above.

    Thanks for your reply
    but I still can't tell which SD card to get
    BTW, can the internal reader read the new SDHC card?
    Shouldn't it be better and faster with SDHC card?

    You want to purchase ultra-speed SD cards for it to work. The standard quality, or free-after rebate SD cards will not work for ReadyBoost.

    I don't believe that the new high capacity SD cards can be read in normal SD card readers. I believe that new SD/SDHC readers are available via USB, but then ReadyBoost may or may not work, because it is forced to go through the USB bus.

    o ok I got it now
    it was a bit tricky
    I inserted an older sd card and it didn't work
    then I tested with a newer and faster one that I took out from my camera
    it also no luck (or at least I thought it wasn't supported)...
    I just tried again with the newer one
    first there was nothing happen
    and it stated that it wasn't supported under readyboost
    but when I hit the retest the drive
    wala...the readyboost feature is alive
    now I know what kind of sd card to get for readyboost
    thanks for your tips


    Regards,
