Short Story: I think I need the Windows 7 64 bit drivers for magicjack.

Long Story: I haven't been able to get MagicJack working after I rebuilt my computer about a month ago. I tried formatting and reinstalling the MagicJack usb, but that just messed things up more. My computer tells me it can't find the correct driver when I plug MagicJack in. I've tried running mjremover and usbscrub to no avail. I've downloaded a few different versions of upgrade.exe. The latest version just bumps me straight into the "Lucky you..." screen. I don't feel very lucky about that. Version 180 will at least open the MagicJack splash before forcing an upgrade on me and telling me I'm lucky for three or four hours until I get sick of the stupid thing hogging the middle of my screen and force close it. I get similar results with magicjacksetup.exe. When I try clicking links to download the drivers I need, I get redirected to the main page of the website where I'm forced to watch a video of the inventor's kids talking about their pets. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit SP1. MagicJack is plugged into a USB 2.0 port. I'm so upset I'm eating waffles in the afternoon, and have a strange craving to read some Franz Kafka. Someone, please, help me!

You may try to unplug your MJ then delete all the MJ and upgrade icons on your desktop and uninstall the MJ program from your Control Panel. Once done, plug in the device then,

Go to "My Computer". From the menu bar go to "Tools" and select "Folder Options". In there click on the "View" tab and make sure the option "Show hidden files and folders" is checked then click "OK".

Press the "Windows" button on your keyboard (the one between CTRL and ALT) then press "R" and type "Application Data" then press the "Enter".

Double click on the folder called "mjusbsp". In there double click on the folder called "ug00000" and then double click on the icon called "setup".

I gave your instructions a try. I keep a clean desktop, so there was no need to delete anything. Magicjack hasn't been dropping a shortcut there, strangely enough. Windows 7's file structure is a little different than I think you're used to, but I found the setup executable you were talking about. It put a shortcut on my desktop this time, launched the splash screen, and now I've got update2.exe running in my task manager, and it's back to telling me how lucky I am. I'm going to try deleting everything in the mjusbsp folder again, then unplugging it and plugging it back in.

Oh, one more thing: setup wasn't in ug00000, it was in a folder called "upgrade." The only exe in ug00000 was MagicJackSplash.

Okay, I think I'm a little closer to understanding what's going on. After I deleted everything, the autorun in the spoofed Magicjack cd rom drive didn't want to work. I tried running the upgrade file after that, and it's doing the same thing it's done all along. I think I'm not erasing everything on the magicjack, and it's winding up with some new files and some old ones. Does that sound right?

Still no luck, and I'm out of ideas.

Okay. I've had enough. MagicJack is trash. I'm going to go with skype from now on. Maybe I can use the Magicjack itself for emergency storage.

Cool Update your USB Drivers or Chipset drivers

I'd bet they need some boost.

Rolling Eyes better yet, provide here your computer sys specs, fire up a cpu-z for us to check.
