    Philips VOIP321 bought new end August '08. CD in the box was V4.0. I even uninstalled Skype so that the CD would load the correct VOIP driver and Skype version, but still in device manager there is the dreaded yellow warning triangle saying the 'device cannot start (code 10)' and device does not show in the Audio config area.

    The phone works fine with the kid's old XP machine. I have spent three days solid on this now and yes the kids are complaining as they are still on school holidays!

    I have even done the above with all protection turned off, as well as trying other USB sockets as forums suggest. The phone box/packaging clearly says Vista compatible as does the Philps website.

    I wait for a reply now from Philips help desk as well as you guys. Thanks in advance! Here's hoping!!

I had the same problem with a HP Pavilion PC running vista. The way I fixed this problem with to plug the USB into a USB port on the PC not using a ext USB Hub. I did have to go into the sound in the control panel and change the default so the other programs would use the correct sound.

I have had the same experience as all others after buying a new PC with Vista Premium. I solved my problem by buying a USB card with a VI6212 chipset controller. I got this from a local PC shop for $20AU in Cairns Qld. The chipset is made in China so they must be fairly common. After installing the card my VOIP problems had gone. The issue seems to be with Vista recognising the microphone of my webcam and the speakers of the monitor in priority over the VOIP (these devices where loaded before VOIP). Therefore when you load the VOIP driver it loads as a generic device not a composite device. I suspect this is why there is variation between reported problems with speakers vide microphones. The Vista device manager will display Error 10. While there is a Microsoft hotfix (933262)it will not solve the problem. Vista SP1 wont help. Nor will the updated driver offered on the Philips website. However, I recommend using the latest Philips 3.8.3 driver. Until the problem is solved properly by Microsoft/Philips, I suggest to save the heartache you invest in the USB card. Laptop users should look for and equivalent USB hub. Please note I am not sure if the VI6212 chipset is significant - but I do know it works.

Philips VOIP 3212

The VOIP321 from Phillips does NOT connect to your wireless router. It requires to be plugged into a USB port on a WINDOWS ONLY desktop computer, which needs to be left on/logged-in with Skype running to send and receive calls. It wont work with Vista either.
Additionally Since Skype Version (Release date: November 19, 2008) and all later versions (including Skype 4 Betas) the software Phillips supply no longer works with Skype and the VOIP321 phone. The latest VOIP321 <a href="" rel="nofollow">driver from their website</a> suffers the same issue, even though it states "The VOIP321 USB Phone Driver V 3.8.3 which can be downloaded from Philips web site is compatible with Skype software version from V2.0.0.x until V3.8.0.x". This is plainly no longer correct with the latest stable release of Skype, V3.8.0.188.
Skype developers are <a href="" rel="nofollow">unable to do anything about it</a> and Phillips wont update their driver (Quote "... no more development/fixes are being incorporated into the VOIP321.EXE file"). Phillips would probably rather sell you a newer bit of hardware.
Don't waste your time on Phillips Skype phone devices, as their driver support is lacking when Skype is updated, so you buy a product for a few hundred dollars and it becomes useless 12 months later.
Another reason to not purchase the Phillips Skype phones is that it is Windows Only. No Mac or Linux support or drivers offered.

Philips VOIP321 not responding or connecting with skype

Just got the phone myself. I can only offer the same advice I would give to any other usb related problem.

first, put the usb device in another usb port.
Then uninstall the software, then reboot and reinstall.
You sound like you know what you are doing so I am guessing you have already tried this. God luck with your search for the answer.
