Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
Magic Jack shows " plug into USB port. It is not setting up to use , however the demo for magicjack starts playing I have unplugged the magicjack, restarted the computer, Etc. with still no solution
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:
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
