using such methods only fools Vista into thinking that such USB drive are compatible. but expect no performance gains in such cases ! these hacks dont work !
The baseline requirements are :
The USB Key must be at least USB 2.0
The device must be able to do 3.5 MB/s for 4 KB random reads uniformly across the entire device and 2.5 MB/s for 512 KB random writes uniformly across the device.
The USB Key has to have at least 230mb of free space !
