The HD500 is only compatible with the .h5e tones. There's no way to really convert the XT tones to the HD format. The two devices are operating on completely different architectures.
Also, the XT has been around for about 10 years now, compared to the 1 year for the HD500, so it's not surprising there's a lot more tones available for the XT at the moment.

And I think you'd be dissapointed with the outcome of it, the PODHD isn't just an upgrade it's something completly new.
You could search the internet and magazines like Total Guitar to see how to recreate your favorite artists sound.
Or request a sound and maybe someone will try to achieve it and give it to you.

You could download Line 6 Edit from the Downloads page and load up the XT tones in your PC. That will show you what effects make up the tone. You could then use this information to create your own tone using HD500 Edit. It won't be the same, but it might give you some ideas.

I agree with ozbadman's idea of loading the tones into either Line 6 Edit or the GearBox application so that you can see which models and settings are being used. At the same time you could run HD500 Edit and try and recreate the presets from scratch by copying the settings and using similar amp and FX models.

Not to threadjack here but I can understand why HD500 Edit can't use patches made for xt's or x3's; totally different devices. What bugs me is I can't open use HD500 Edit to open tones that were made for the HD400 or HD300. I can understand where HD300 or HD400 couldn't run patches made for the HD500 since they aren't made to be as flexible but the 500 seems like it should be flexible enough to be able to run stuff for 300's and 400's and that I when I search for compattible tones they should all show up on customtone.com.
For that matter, it might be nice to have some sort of a converter tool that would match the settings from older patches into newer ones for us so we wouldn't have to have both programs installed and manually set everything up.
