Well with the arrival of windows Vista, I'd just like to let you all know of a lovely little feature that Vista comes with.
As some of you ponder weather or not to make the change to Windows Vista, and what performance hit you will suffer on you rig (PC), fear not, as you can use your PSP and Inserted memory stick as added system memory.
I've been using Vista now since it got released to businesses back in November of last year, and with only 1gig of ram, I have say that with all of Vistas features on, it eats between 250 and 400 meg of ram just for the OS, depending on what its doing at any given time, which by all accounts is a lot of ram when you want to play games like FEAR and Elder scrolls: oblivion.
But there is a very nice handy feature as I have mentioned that lets you use your PSP, or any USB flash drive for that matter, as extra system ram.
And here's how it works.
Plug your PSP into your Windows Vista PC,
In the PSP menu, select connect via USB, Vista like XP will Automatically install the appropriate drivers for the PSP.
Now, click the start button on Vista, and Navigate to Computer, and right click on your PSP and select properties,
When the properties box shows up, select the READYBOOST tab, and then assign how much memory you would like Vista to use on your memory card, click apply and then close.
Vista will now use your PSP's memory stick as extra system ram by writing to a predefined size readyboost cache file, this does mean that you will not be able to use your PSP while it is in this mode, but does mean that you could effectively have upward of 8gig total memory of PC system ram.
You do need to keep your PSP in USB mode so its advisable to have the power lead plugged in if you plan to play any games on your PC.
Then once your finished just reverse the procedure so as not to lose any important information that may be residing on your PSP's memory and the PC will delete the cache file for you,
And then you have your PSP and memory stick back. its that simple.
Instant memory for your PC :)
