I'm going to try Ready Boost. I have an unused 2Gig SD card. Previously I used this card in a dig-cam, so it has to be formatted before I can even try to use it for Ready Boost.
Ques. #1: For Ready Boost, Do I format the SD card with NTFS, FAT, FAT32, exFAT? I'm guessing NTFS. What is exFAT?????
Ques. #2: What is the BEST Allocation Unit size for Ready Boost? Options are: 572bytes, 1024bytes, 2048bytes, 4096bytes, 8192bytes, 16Kbytes, 32Kbytes, 64Kbytes.
I'm not even sure what an "Allocation Unit Size" is. Obviously I want to use ALL 2Gig of this 2Gig mem. card. There is no "Allocation Unit Size" of 2048Meg or 4096Meg (for a 4Gig mem card).
If I can make Ready Boost work with this 2Gig card, I'll buy 2 different types of 4Gig mem. cards & use them with my internal Flash reader (which uses 2 USB mobo headers (ckts).
Reason for trying Ready Boost: My 64bit Win7 Ultimate Video Editor computer (Asus P5GC mobo, E6800 CPU, 4Gig RAM) is already Maxed out at 4Gig RAM. Maybe Ready Boost will help speed up video conversions. If not, it only cost me $20 to test 8Gig of Ready Boost, & the mem. cards can still be used in dig. cams.
EDIT: typo correction
