Chances are it's your MIDI interface not handling the download correctly. If you're using an audio interface that happens to sport MIDI I/O then that's most likely the reason behind the failure.
The Vetta firmware update is a beast of an update to perform via MIDI so dedicated MIDI to USB interfaces like the M-Audio MIDISports, Edirol UM-1X or the Yamaha UX16 work best.
Devices like these are robust enough to handle the Vetta, M13, and M9 updates.

To anyone with issue doing the 2.5 flash upgrade to their Vetta via MIDI
Today I bought the M Audio MIDI Sport Uno 1 x1 USB to MIDI at Guitar Center for $36 + tax = $40
and I was able to do the upgrade with Line 6 Monkey
You will know its working because you wont get the message that the Software Download Complete
until the software is done. You will see a flashing * asterik indicating the download it proceeding.
It took me 5 - 10 minutes. I recommend saving time buy the MAudio MIDISport Uno !

I have exactly the same problem as the threadmaker. I have the EDIROL UM-1EX midi cable (which according to you guys should work)
but I have tried and tried and I still get stuck. I had the 2.5 firmware but my amp (a Vetta II) was acting up so I thought I'd reflash it to make
it response better. I am now stuck with a useless amp that's fixed into a blank screen. My line6 monkey tells me the firmware is installed
but that it cannot recognise it.
There should'nt be a problem with my USD to MIDI interface because I flashed my Vetta with it 2 years ago and it worked back then.
I am asking(like the tread owner) if there is an other HARD RESET one can do on the VETTA? Like holding down certain buttons to try and
jumpstart it or "zero out" whatever crap that's in there? Mind you I cannot use the LCD screen since I cannot see anything on it.
Some help would be appriciated
ps Thought I'd write on this thread and not start one similar - sorry if that is a misstake ds

I know that Miller mentioned the Edirol by name, and it along with the Yamaha will likely work for editing and such. However, I can tell you from experience and years of others' experience being shared that the only really trustworthy (and reasonable) device for the flash update is the MidiSport Uno. Speed of midi data and packet size can be funny things when it comes to large amounts of passage like a flash, but the Uno has proven its compatibility time and time again.

Thanks for your response Chris.
I did try with a M-Audio Midisport 2X2 as well but to no avail (surely that must be "big enough"?)
I have taken the damn thing to a repair shop and they will have to take a look at it. My patience ran out and although I think you must be right I suspect it has something to do with one of the following things as well:
- I flashed it 2 years ago but my computer was on 32 bits Leopard back then. It's not on 64 Snowleopard.
- Wonder if the Vetta clashes with Line6 Edit. I have used it for the last 4 days and thats when I started to get these weird things*
- The firmware for the Midi should be updated they say but I don't know if my installation made any difference
- I updated Line 6 Edit 2 days ago from my Java 5 workaround thing to the one that works in Java 6.
I bet that any of the above or all together has made my Vetta p****d off with my mac and refuses to cooperate
*the weird stuff (that made me want to flash the firmware again) was that the "treble button" was moving by itself (like a nervous muscle) which made the "Save" button constantly orange as if I had changed anything. I bet a buck that was created by Line 6 Edit and the crash that came when I tried to make a "hard reset" is down to Line 6 Edit, its new version and the fact that my mac is on Snowleopard and my Midi-Usb cable don't like that at all...

Last post (probably lol)
Just to let you guys know. I took it to a guy with a M-Audio UNO card and a PC and it worked!
It's been properly flashed and works again. This leads me to believe those of you that says that
the UNO way is the only way! Weird since the ones I have worked 2 years ago so the only thing
I can think of is a combination of "Old firmware" for my old USB MIDI cable though I did upgrade
it it was acting up under the mac and the 64 bit snowleopard, and that my EDIROL UM - 1 EX
cable does not work with leopard and 64 bits (can anyone confirm that? Jus tfor fun I mean...)
Now do I dare try to flash it again from home with my new M-Audio cable that I bought or shall I
just leave it? (future will tell but at one stage I am going to try)
Thanks 4 sound in Stockholm for helping me!
ps. since the latest FW for the UNO card is from september 2009 I for granted that my new UNO
will work "straight out of the box". Is there actually any need to install driver or is it PlugnPlay
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 15, 2011 3:38 AM (in response to zn8ke)Re: RE: Vetta I flash upgrade 2.5 failure
There have been two versions (different hardware) of the Uno. The old one (that worked on XP) used drivers. The newer one (that works on Vista and 7) is plug-and-play. Sorry, but I can't speak to Mac recognition. I would check the M-Audio website FAQ.
P.S. Glad it worked!
