    I had the same problem and finally it would not even load the magicjack program. I called them and spent several hours trying to troubleshoot the problem with a support person. I even got a message "Defective Jack. Please contact Support".

    I was disconnected from the support chat and could not connect back to them - there was a problem cookie problem "I am wondering if this was done on purpose so that I would not be able to reach them" - I cleared my cookies and was able to connect again - this time they went through the same process only to tell me to contact Radio Shack where I purchased the unit for a replacement. But they would not send me an e-mail to confirm this. I am assuming I am going to get the runaround between radio Shack the MagicJack - we shall see I will keep you posted..

After 2 days of frustration I was able to solve this by the following:
1. Click Start
2. right click my computer and select properties
3. select hardware then Device Manger
4. click + DVD/CD-ROM Drives
5. right click Tiger Jet CD-ROM USB Drive then Uninstall
6. unplug Magic Jack wait 15 secs
7. Plug back in and let device re-install, MJ may start here, if not...
8. Click Magic Jack Icon, program should start
I have to do this everytime I unplug or restart my computer. I don't know exactly why it hangs like this but this procedure works for me everytime. Good Luck

Delete magic jacks folder in user names application data. can just move it out if want.
format MJ's removable drive. I ntfs allocation size 1024 in pulldown options for format.
unplug magic jack wait seconds it does the run through may want the latest upgrade too

now at this point it works Copy the files placed directly on the Magic Jack removable drive
save to a folder in documents from this point on

Just format removable drive and copy files you saved back to MJ drive.

its faster this way and you avoid the step off logging back into your account since already in saved files.

1 thing may need to update your copy of the files to have latest copy if use a lot of contact numbers.

hope this helps while I chatted with MJ ops hours and hour few helped most sent me in circles.

I was having audio and connection problems until I solved the technical problem of my computer's USB bus drawing over 500 mA, actually 580 mA, with everything plugged into the bus.


Power-Hungry USB Ports The number of USB devices that the users can plug into the computer these days, with cameras, scanners, printers, keyboards, pointing devices, PDAs, hard disks and many more peripherals using the USB interface that often runs off the computer's power through the USB bus. This is more of a convenience since the users don't have to plug in a separate electrical cord, but it's also easy to overload the USB ports if the users plug a number of devices into many of the available ports.

Does the user's PC's USB ports supply enough electricity to power all the devices they have attached to them? Plugging too much gear into a bus-powered USB hub (one with no external power adapter) can overwhelm a USB port by demanding more than the 500 mA it can supply. Check the power demands on any USB port in Windows XP by right-clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Double-click Universal Serial Bus controllers, double-click the USB Root Hub entry, choose the Power tab, and add up the amounts in the "Power Required" column.



(Below is the advice which many users forget about.)
In a few rare instances, the USB port on the user's computer may not have enough electrical power for the magicJack® dongle to work properly.
Try using a externally AC powered USB hub to plug the magicJack® dongle into instead of using the computer's USB port if there are 'many' other USB devices connected to the computer or if the magicJack® dongle acts erratically with audio and connection problems. »(Cost $20.00)
magicJack® may or may not work best when plugged directly into a USB port on the computer.
Do not plug the magicJack® dongle into a multi port USB hub that is not AC powered.
After the user has connected the magicJack® dongle for the first time, registered the device, and has the 'softphone' on the screen, the user should probably run TCP Optimizer to “tune” the computer to work with it in an efficient manner; it can be downloaded from the following website:

http://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

The program can aid both the novice and the advanced user in tweaking related TCP/IP parameters in the Windows Registry, making it easy to tune your system to the type of Internet connection used. The tool uses advanced algorithms, and the bandwidth delay product to find the best TCP Window for your specific connection speed. It provides for easy tuning of all related TCP/IP parameters, such as MTU, RWIN, and even advanced ones like QoS and ToS/Diffserv prioritization. The program works with all current versions of Windows, and includes additional tools, such as testing average latency over multiple hosts, and finding the largest possible packet size (MTU).

The user can use the TCP Optimizer by following these short instructions:

1. Choose the maximum Connection Speed from the slider bar (the maximum available bandwidth, in kilobits per second)
2. Choose the Network Interface, or check to Modify All Network Adapters
3. Pick "Optimal settings" from the radio-buttons near the bottom of the program
4. Click on the "Apply changes" button and reboot

My magic jack plus will not work and I am wondering if the electrical connector is bad.


Go to the magic jack website and update your adapter. Also try different USB ports and reboot your computer with magic jack connected. If the computer does not recognize the adapter, try disconnectin and reconnecting into different ports. There is a update option on magic jack website and tech support as well.

I can call out on my Majic Jack Plus but cannot receive calls. The majic Jack is registered and set up on my modem.


This could be failure of the power adapter module.
Is your Magicjack plugged into the wall power thru a power adapter? Try bypassing the power adapter and plugging the magicjack directly into a USB port on your computer. If the magicjack work correctly now, then you have a bad power adapter module.
I had a similar problem. My Magicjack was plugged into a wall socket. First the dial tone became inconsistent, then I could no longer receive calls, then it died completely.
I plugged the MJ into a USB socket on my computer, and it then worked normally.
If you have a failing power adatper, it will continue to deteriorate, and it will eventually fail completely. The blue power on the magicjack will not come on when it is plugged into the power adapter, but it will illuminate when plugged into the USB socket on the computer.
Note: the computer must be on to power the magicjack thru the USB port.

Magicjack is aware of the problem and offers a replacement power adapter module. To contact them, go to www.magicjack.com and go to "support". They will ship you a new power module for about $5.50. Some people have reported that the replacement modules from Magicjack are no better than the originals and have had repeat failures.
Consider getting a power module from another source. There are lots of AC to USB power converter modules available on Ebay for only a few dollars. Search Ebay for "magicjack power adapter".

How do i connect my magicjack to my computer


in order to connect your magic-jack to your computer you have to plug it in to the usb port on the computer you are using. The magic jack should come with a extension cord for the usb port just in case you need the length.
Hope this response was hopeful.

Need magic Jack plus software download


Magicjack software is stored in the Magicjack module. Plug that module into a USB port on your computer. You should get an onscreen message like: "Install or run program from your media".

REGISTRAR MI MAGICJACK


Check your account status.
https://web03.magicjack.com/my/index.html?
login with your telephone number/email address and password.
As long as you are on the internet and the magic jack has a telephone attached, which then plugged into a USB port, it should set itself up. If not try another USB port.
