Actually forget it. Spoke to some line 6 guy in Belgium and it turns out that the official people don't even know what's wrong with it. So my X3live is broken and needs to be replaced. Only had it two weeks, used it a few times at home, and its mysteriously broken. Not at all impressed with the supposed hardyness of this 'gig ready' piece of equipment. Maybe I just got real unlucky with the one duff one off the production line, or annoyed some god or the other and am now paying the price. Either way its now got be be sent back to the retailer who then have to send it to Line 6, who then confirm that its broken to the retailer and credit them, and then the retailer sends me a replacement. Which will apparently take up to 2 weeks. And I have 2 gigs next week. That's just dandy.
Don't get me wrong, I love most Line 6 equipment. I'm just annoyed that my X3 live broke almost immediately.

Unfortunately the pod couldn't be repaired. I had a lengthy talk with European technical support in Belgium (real nice chap), and after us both trying a few things whilst booting in safe mode that didn't work, he came to the conclusion that it was irrevocably broken and needed to be replaced by the retailer. So I sent it off on friday to the retailer who needs to send it to line 6 europe to confirm that the unit is fecked, whereuopn they credit the retailer, who then sends me a replacement. Bit of a rigmarole, but I guess its the way of things.
Looking forward to the replacement, as I was massively impressed with the X3 live, all except the mysteriously not working bit.

Thanks for the follow up. Our Belgian support team are all good people so I am glad they worked with you to determine the unit was damaged. Let us know if you have any questions for us when you get your replacement.

Will do. Nice to know you guys follow up on this type of thing as well. There's less of that faceless multinational vibe, and more of a "Line 6 seem a real nice bunch" thing going on. So tanls for that. And yes, I will undoubtably pester you with numerous questions once I get my replacement X3.

Hello guys! I'm GAMPGUITAR, the person that Nick has cited at the begin which has the same problem with the POD X3 Live.
I'm not could resolve my problem also. The last version of flash memory that I could put in my POD fot it work was the 1.02 and I don't know why!
In the safe mode the unique thing that seems not work fine is the MIDI and I don't no why also, I never use this!
However, I can't use every others upgrades that Line6 launch after this version. I has to try update for new version 2.0 created now and the same happens.
Please help me Miller, Nick could replace your POD because he was in the warranty period, I not. I have to pay for this. But this problem can happen with everybody at any moment, nobody knows what cause this.
I don't make nothing that could broken my POD, this is a internal memory problem that appear!
Please help me, what I do?

This has recently just happened to me. AFTER I got my pod back from a service center for the 3rd time (yes, they couldnt get the USB fix right the first 2 times, and ended up breaking it on the third attempt.) Anyways, All irritation aside, I would just like to know if theres any way I can get a replaced unit. Im tired of spending money and time trying to get my pod fixed. Once one thing works, another breaks. For a product that supposedly has impressive durability and gig ready hardiness, it sure is hard to get a pod that works correctly :/.
Anyways, if any representatives could tell me what my options are at this point Id really appreciate it. I plan to call corporate headquarters on monday but just hoping there is a quick fix

Yeah sad to tell you I am having the same problem. Just wont start up. I tell you, I think I am going to delete my line six software sell my spider amp and move on. Its just wrong to be left hanging when thier is clearly a hardware defect.
There should be a recall or something to fix these rigs they are not cheap (or are they?) Sorry we couldnt help is just not any help at all. In the future I will be sure to steer friends away from defective products and companies that supply them.
