Not building cache with SD and System Memory

Not building cache with SD+System Memory

Steps to reproduce:

Add cache device: SD 1.9Gb (actually a 2Gb card, 1.9Gb available)
Add cache device: System Memory 512Mb (up to 2Gb)
Build cache reaches 49% and displays “System not working”, inmediatelly changes to “Paused”. (May be “System not working” is not the exact message, it changes really fast).

This steps reproduce to perfection in my laptop.


First i’ve tried only with the SD and worked to perfection, noticed a up to a 50% speed-up in most aplications. Firefox performed much faster and smoothly. Avast antivirus also loadup faster and has less delay in starting Outlook 2007 plugin.

Then i added the System Memory, in order to fully test the product, and came with this error.

The System Memory without the SD works fine.

System description:

Notebook HP Pavilion dv9335
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.73GHz
RAM: 2Gb
Hdd: 140Gb 5400rpm
O.S.: Windows XP Professional, SP3

eBooster: 3.0, build 473

Hopes this helps.

Federico Alvarez.
