Hey, sorry you are having problems with the update. If you search these forums, you will see it is a common problem with Spider Monkey. The MIDI control is not for use with your amp, hence the error messages. It is for using the FBV to control a MIDI device or software.
As it looks like you have already tried the usual solutions - different USB cable, different USB port, unplug all other USB devices - have you disabled your anti-virus software and firewall? This sometimes helps.
I could not get Monkey to recognize my FBV (and amp) with Vista, and eventually used another computer running XP.
