Another solution to resolve the problem, where the MajicJack Dongle is properly seen by Windows, and registers correctly in “Device Manager”, but during the installation of the MajicJack softphone software, the following message appears:


Warning: You must plug magicJack into USB

Follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the MajicJack Dongle from the USB port.

2. Delete the mjusbsp folder under: <Drive letter>:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Application Data\

3. Load Regedit and delete the following registry key entry located under the following registry key path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR\Disk&Ven_YMAX&PROD_MagicJack&Rev_2.00\7&31f04563&0&A921031

4. Exit the Regedit utility.

5. Plug the MajicJack Dongle back into the USB port.

6. Run the UPGRADE.EXE program from MajicJack.

NOTE: It wouldn't be a bad idea to ensure that your USB drivers are the latest version, as I found this could have been a contributing factor to the occurence of the problem on my system.

After I ran the UPGRADE.EXE program, the softphone software loaded up and I am now able to successfully use my MajicJack to place calls and receive calls.

Hope this helps.

NOTE: If you get an error when attempting to delete the registry key, the "USBSTOR" registry key may have "Read/only" permissions set on it, as I found out one of my systems.

Did you try googling that problem? - or consult the knowledge base on Microsoft's website on how to manage the registry. I didn't believe there was that much difference in managing the registry in a 64 bit environment.

Make sure you unplug the magicjack dongle, via the "safe removal" method of the hardware.

Hello everyone I found a little more help here for this problem, looks like you need to take ownership of the registry key in order to delete it. Unfortunately if you're running into this problem vista will make you set permissions on each folder and subfolder individually.

Did you try googling for Regedit? It looks like there's a very nice wikipedia entry on it.

I'm not sure how serious you are about improving your situation when your first post, seemingly for help, was a rant in the rants/raves forum. (I feel like I've already wasted my time.).

I have the exact same problem you had...and I spent all day yesterday and today with the online techs trying to fix it...including the upgrade and still nothing.

I plug the MJ device in and nothing happens except a window pops up that says PHONE (DSmile.

There is no MJ desktop shortcut...there is no softkey.

This happened out of the blue yesterday (01-30-09) and here I sit with a MJ that lights up nice and pretty blue when I plug it in,,,but does nothing else.

When I try and run the upgrade it says : Warning, Plug MJ into USB

I'm spent...any ideas?

Do you see the two drives in "My Computer" for MagicJack? One is a CD-ROM drive named magicjack. The other is PHONE.
