Another thing to try is the "do not map through this device" option. Here is a message that describes the steps. From: "Brent Harding" <bharding@xxxxxxxxxx> To: "PC Audio Discussion List" <pc-audio@xxxxxxxxxxxx> Subject: Re: USB soundcard Date: March 4, 2008 7:02 PM There should be an option in device manager for the device. On my headset it's called do not map through this device, and checking that makes it never become default unless you tell it to. It's a little buried in there under USB audio device, properties, and USB audio device again for some reason. Bobps. Don't forget to try modifying the jaws.ini file method. here is info on doing that.

Hi, I don't have Magic Jack so I can't comment exactly on the problem you are having. However, the problem might be that when Magic Jack is plugged in to yoursystem, it takes over as the default sound device on your system. To verifythis and change it, go to the control panel and check the sounds and audio devices dialog. Go to the audio tab and see what device is shown as the default. If it shows as the Magic Jack device, change it back to the sound card in your system and see if this corrects the problems you are having. I hope this helps, Ryan -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Katherine Schulz Sent: Tuesday, April 01, 2008 10:22 AM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Magic Jack And Jaws That is really strange. How, then, do you get calls if the phone is being used for Jaws? Do you think that ear phones plugged in to the computer would work?

Whatyou have to do is pick up your telephone and listen to jaws through the phone it self.Note: as long as you have the magic jack plugged in to the U.S.B. port; Jawswill only work by listening to it through the telephone..

It plugs in to a JSB port and then in to the telephone. It allows you touse your phone, sort of like Vonage but using the phone line. When I firstplugged it in, Jaws started to speak and then stopped.Does anyone know if using this sort of phone program would have an effect onJaws? When I unplugged the Magic Jack from the USB prot, Jaws came back. I'm sort of afraid to plug the phone converter box back in. Any help with this would be appreciated. Katherine
