I have a digital phone line that my pc is connected to. I am not able to connect to one of my clients because of my line being in digital.

Is there a way to convert my digital line to analog for my pc?????????

You can buy a converter:

Here's one buy Targus, and I'm sure there are others out there for sale too, just try using Google:

here is an article that explains how they work and "what to look for when buying a digital to analog converter"

It also seems, from my searching, that digital to analog is far more expensive than analog to digital.
I looked on Ebay and I see analog to digital but not digital to analog.

here's a list of 164 digital to analog

here's one that has computer applications

In general, not only can you not connect a PC directly to a digital phone line, but if you do so, it may destroy the modem in the PC.

You need to be a lot more specific about what you have done.
