Markomio,
Thanks for your advise, there is nothing that is impossible in IT, do you ever know that you can use ur flash in place of RAM but you learnt it, i also want to learn this from the public.

Thank you.

Instead of trying to use your flash as RAM, why don't you just buy more RAM and use your flash as flash?

It will save you a lot of strees and even cost

Maybe he has his reasons for wanting to use his flash as RAM but if it is for speed,just go ahead and buy the RAM

flash and other storage devices sucah as hard disk diskette can be use as memory. this is what is reffered toa s virtual memory in computing
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by Nobody: 4:51pm On May 15, 2009
kai!


in windows vista there is a feature called readyboost that enables one to use flash memory to speed up a system. it is a cheap alternative to ram. it does not exist in windows xp. you can use either a flash drive or a memory card to run the feature.

end of story

the whole idea of a new O is new feature etal. you cannot expect the new treats in xp to be in 2000, the new stuff in vista to be in xp, or the new stuff in 7 to be in vista. some things can be ported, but vey few.

simply dual boot xp. end of story.

Though you may have ur reasons, but remember we are not the same, holding back on a forum like this is selfishness, we can share and learn from each other.

point of correction,
ready boost is to vista
while
eboostr is to XP
download it from www.eboostr.com/download/
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by blackweaver(m): 11:57am On May 16, 2009
it will still be signiificantly slower than conventional ram; besides i hope you are not
talking about usb flash 'cos i've booted an os from usb flash i can confidently assure
you that booting from conventional hard disk is faster. My point, if you want more memory
and don't want to buy more ram, you are better off increasing the size of your virtual
memory instead - unless you are short on hard disk space too
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by sameolg616(m): 6:03pm On May 17, 2009
it aint slower, just that it has to be original flash and to get desired results,make sure thats the only thing u want to use it for and make sure its nothing less than 1gig
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by netotse(m): 7:04pm On May 17, 2009
saw in a pcworld edition that using the readyboost feature isn't even all that as in the advantage gained is not worth it! i'm with increasing the pagefile size
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by Seun(m): 7:05pm On May 17, 2009
It's a complete waste of time. The types of flash that are cheap enough to make this worthwhile are very slow, and the good ones are not much cheaper than RAM. Just get more RAM and stop wasting your time.
Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by lekside44(m): 8:18pm On May 17, 2009
why do we need a flash memory? we have not even used half of the power of currently available memory

believe me when i say this; it IS slower; the usb bus is even slower than your ide bus talkless of the ram which is the
second fastest kind of memory tyou have on a typical pc (after the cache memory). Yes technically flash storage is faster than your
normal magnetic disks - as long as they are on the same kind of bus but when it is usb,
but then again you say you use it on vista; i knew there was a reason why i didn't like that OS but then again
i don't really use it

this is a link where they did some analysis on performance:

Re: How Can I Use My Flash As Ram In My Window Xp. by sameolg616(m): 11:10pm On May 17, 2009
pls dont get me wrong, i wasnt advocating for readyboost/vista,
i was simply talking abouy eboostr/xp, of course,with all that 32 bit/64 bit graphics that comes with vista, i expect it to be slow,
