Pen drive is slow


Slow Transfer on a USB Flash Drive b> Using a USB flash drive is a convenient way of transferring data and files from one device to another. However, sometimes you may find that your USB drive is slow to transfer files onto your laptop or PC. This lag may also cause your desktop or laptop to slow down while you use other programs. You do not need to replace your flash drive and buy a new one. You can fix a slow file transfer problem in just a few steps.

b>Plug your USB flash drive into your computer. Click the "Start" button and select "My Computer." Right-click the USB icon from the My Computer window and click "Properties" from the menu that comes up. Go to the "Hardware" tab and select your flash drive once you find it in the list of items. Then click the "Properties" option in this menu. Choose "Policies" tab within the Properties menu. Turn on the performance optimization option and click "OK." Click "OK" again to exit out of the Properties dialog box. Go back to the My Computer window and right-click on the USB icon. Select the "Format" option from the list of choices. Select the "NTFS" file system and choose "Quick Format." Press "OK" to confirm the choices and to initiate the formatting. Wait for the drive to finish formatting before ejecting it and removing it from the computer.
USB Flash That Is Slow and Damaged
b> USB flash drives are used to transport data between computer systems. Because it is essentially just a small hard drive, the USB device can become damaged and slow down in performance due to viruses or damaged files. To correct these problems and fix the USB flash drive, you must reformat the drive. This removes all data from the drive, returning it to its factory settings.

Plug the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer system. Close any AutoPlay window that may load onto the screen. Click "Start" then "(My) Computer." Right-click the removable device icon that appears on the screen. Select "Format" from the pull-down menu. This loads a format options screen. Click "Yes" and the computer formats the USB flash drive, removing the damaged content and returning it to the factory settings.
ReadyBoost With a Slow Flash Drive

b>The ReadyBoost feature in Windows has the ability to increase the speed of low-RAM computers by caching program data on a flash memory device. However, the device must meet minimum performance characteristics in order for Windows to enable ReadyBoost, because ReadyBoost may not meet expectations when used on a slower device. If you still want to use ReadyBoost with your flash drive or memory card, you can make a change in the system registry to force Windows to use the device.

Insert the flash device that you would like to use for ReadyBoost. Open the Start menu, and click "Computer" to see the icon for the device. Right-click the icon for the flash device, and then click "Properties." Click the "ReadyBoost" tab at the top of the window. Clear the check from the "Stop retesting this device when I plug it in" box, and then click "OK." Remove the flash device. Open the Start menu again. Type "regedit" in the "Search programs and files" box at the bottom, and then press "Enter" to run the Registry Editor. Double-click the folders "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE," "SOFTWARE," "Microsoft," "Windows NT," "CurrentVersion." and "EMDMgmt." Locate and click the folder for your flash memory device under "EMDMgmt." In most cases, you can determine the correct folder because it contains the name of the device's manufacturer. Double-click the registry entry "DeviceStatus" on the right side of the window. Change the number under "Value Data" to "2" and click "OK." Double-click "ReadSpeedKBs" on the right side of the window. Change the value to "10000000" and click "OK." Repeat this process with the "WriteSpeedKBs" registry entry and close the Registry Editor. Reinsert the flash memory device, and return to the "Computer" window. Right-click the icon for the flash memory device, and then click "Properties." Click the "ReadyBoost" tab. Windows now displays an option to enable ReadyBoost on the device. You might install a usb 3 card the speeds are much faster cheap and easy to install. Hope this helps.

Use ReadyBoost to Speed up Programs in Windows 7

To enable ReadyBoost:

1. Put your USB thumb drive into a USB port on your computer.

2. When the AutoPlay menu appears, click Speed up my System with Windows ReadyBoost.

3. Select your device and specify how much of the drive you want to use for ReadyBoost. I recommend using a full USB drive. (TIP: match the size of your drive to the amount of RAM you have in your computer. i.e., With 4GB RAM, use a 4GB thumb drive

4. Click OK. Don’t expect miracles—but stick with it and your computer will begin to perform more efficiently.

Virtual memory


  1. Right-click "My Computer" and choose "Properties"
  2. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click "Settings".
  3. On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click "Change".
  4. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
  5. Under Paging file size for selected drive, click "Custom size", and type a new paging file size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click "Set".
Virtual Memory should be roughly 1.5 x the size of your installed RAM in case all data stored in Memory has to be written to the hard drive.
Don't forget to click "Set" after you entered the values, just clicking "OK" is not enough!

Just a tip: You can set the VM to "0", reboot your computer and then defragment the hard drive. When that is complete and you allocate the new VM space, it will reserve a continuous space on your drive, which results in better access times.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Can I remove ram from acer aspire 3003wlci to add to toshiba satellite p205d-s7454. The acer is pc-2700 and Toshiba is Pc2-5300 200 pin DDR2. Is sticking a USB 1gb readyboost the same as installling 1gb?


To answer your question, no. Those RAM types are not compatible as they are a full generation apart in terms of a RAM lifecycle.
And to answer your question about Readyboost, no. Installing a 1gb flash drive to use with readyboost isn't the same as installing an extra 1gb of internal system memory. It essentially allows Windows to use the newly added flash drive as a system cache. See more information on Readyboost here.
Thanks, and have a great day!

I got my PNY Attache 4g memory stick for backups and now its full. can I delete or what do i delete to make room? for newer ones? it has ready boost with 3,745,792 kb being used taking up most of the space...


If you want to use that flash drive for backing things up then I would suggest not using it for ReadyBoost. If you disable ReadyBoost on that flash drive you should have plenty of space on your flash drive for backups. Disabling it should not hurt your computer's performance at all. Here is how to disable ReadyBoost: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Turn-ReadyBoost-on-or-off-for-a-storage-device.

Error message states that there is not enough room


One possibility: you have too many files in the directory. USB flash drives are usually formatted in FAT32 and thus stuck with the limits of the standard. Try moving some of your files into folders.

Second check for a encrypted partition locking part of the disc. If ReadyBoost capable a section of the memory set aside to do ReadyBoost for Windows Vista or Win7 (you'll need to release the ReadyBoost on the computer that dedicated the space).

I hope this helps.

HTS548080M9AT00 hard drive clicks/won't boot


sometimes i find that your registry and drivers can get screwed up. If you have a copy of windows, you might want to try reformatting your hdd and reinstall windows. Other times its caused by lack of virtual memory, if your running vista try popping a flash drive and use readyboost. The only thing about readyboost is that you need windows to boot first.

ReadyBoost Error


In the future, always use the Safe Removal method before removing a USB drive. This prevents this kind of error in the first place.

If you haven't done so already, reboot, then insert the USB. Make sure there are no windows open which reference the USB device. Then use Safe Removal (right click in the lower right hand corner of the task bar. That should clear it.

If that doesn't work, right click the USB drive in My Computer, choose Properties. See if you can clear the Read Only setting.

Last resort - copy off the files you need from the USB, and format it.
