During the Pocket POD update using the Line 6 Monkey software on a Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) machine, the update may stop and will not continue. This may occur on certain USB ports. This issue can be verified if the progress bar stops partway through the update. Note: If the update does stop, the system will not respond to requests to shutdown the computer, even after force quitting monkey. After disconnecting the Pocket POD, the system can be shutdown. The Pocket POD remains in boot mode after this occurs. Reconnecting to Monkey and re-installing the firmware update does recover the Pocket POD. Please make sure to test the Pocket POD on every USB port on your computer while troubleshooting this issue. Completely remove any USB hubs, even if not in use.
This issue could be related to a number of things. First check your connections.
Have you tried connecting to different USB Ports?
Are you using a USB hub?
Make sure you have the latest drivers installed:
Then try the optimizations in our USB Troubleshooting Guide:

I'm back home now (was stuck in a jotel before) and so have access to more computers. Plugged it into an old XP laptop and it came back to life with "FlashUpdate 1.0" on the screen. Monkey recognised it as a POD 2 with no firmware on it though not a Pocket POD. Plugged it back into the orgional Windows 7 laptop and suddenly Windows downloaded and installed some new usb drivers for it automatically and then Monkey recognised it again as a pocket POD and updated it perfectly.
Not sure exactly what happened some kind of USB weirdness on the Windows 7 laptop I guess and maybe the XP laptop gave something in the POD a kick to fire it up again. Anyway its updated to 1.01 now and all working perfectly so I am a happy bunny.
