just FYI, Monkey communicates with the POD using MIDI over USB, so in fact you do have midi connected... it's your POD.
in monkey you can select to roll back the firmware to the earlier version, but to me that sounds like it may be a fault with the POD itself, if it's giving you DSP errors when you boot it up.
if you still have issues rolling back to 1.01, then please report back.
Also make sure your version of monkey is up to date.
hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the info on the midi link.
I found another topic that covered this problem. Apparently some laptop usb ports do not work well with he pod. I tried my desk top and managed to get it unlocked and updated to 1.31, but took a lot of messing around with factory resets and multiple attempts. I ended up downloading the file first and then doing install from file, rather than install latest. I am sure it sshouldn't make any difference, but it did for me.

Glad to see that it looks like you were able to successfully get the flash memory updated in your POD HD300. Thank you for your helpful suggestions Rowbi!

I had this same problem (error code Code 80009000) and I called Line 6. We troubleshot several things and discovered the problem. I assume your computer is a Windows 7 64 bit. That is a timeout error and it is caused by the power settings in your laptop. Your power settings out of the box are set to limit the amount of info that passes through the USB ports.
This is the fix.
Click start then Control Panel.
Click on System and Security
Click Power Options
Click the radio button Power 4 Gear High Performance
Click change plan settings
Click change advanced power settings
Scroll down and Click USB settings
Click USB Selective suspend setting
change plugged in and on battery to disable. Then save changes.
You should be good to go. That opens the USB ports to unlimited info passing through.

I tried to install this upgrate with three separate computers without success. I tried the download of the file to one of the computers then attempted to install from that, and still no success. I did learn that if you uninstall all of the line 6 stuff, you can at least re-establish the connection between the computer and the POD. I'll see if one of the other computers will work, but even if it does it appears that there must be some problem with the design of the Line 6 software. There's just too many people reporting failures.
