Adding system memory (typically referred to as RAM) is often the best way to improve a
PC's performance, since more memory means more applications are ready to run without
accessing the hard drive. However, upgrading memory can be difficult and costly, and
some machines have limited memory expansion capabilities, making it impossible to add

Windows Vista introduces Windows ReadyBoost, a new concept in adding memory to a
system. You can use non-volatile flash memory, such as that on a universal serial bus
(USB) flash drive, to improve performance without having to add additional memory
"under the hood."

The flash memory device serves as an additional memory cache—that is, memory that
the computer can access much more quickly than it can access data on the hard drive.
Windows ReadyBoost relies on the intelligent memory management of Windows
SuperFetch and can significantly improve system responsiveness.

It's easy to use Windows ReadyBoost. When a removable memory device such as a USB
flash drive or a secure digital (SD) memory card is first inserted into a port, Windows
Vista checks to see if its performance is fast enough to work with Windows ReadyBoost.
If so, you are asked if you want to use this device to speed up system performance. You
can choose to allocate part of a USB drive's memory to speed up performance and use the
remainder to store files.

Hope that helps, you must be using Windows Vista!
