    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

Will not start up


hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.
