Not all MIDI/USB interfaces are the same. I don't have the time to write a 5 paragraph explanation about the technicalities of it all but you need a proper MIDI interface not just a cheap USB to MIDI cable. They just don't work.
Get yourself the M-Audio UNO. That is the Correct interface to use. It will work flawlessly. I use one on all my Line 6 gear and it hasn't let me down.
I hope this is Helpful.

Just for the record...
To the best of my knowledge,
you can NOT pump audio to your PC thru the MIDI on the POD 2.0
The MIDI is for program changes and automation.
If you are wanting to pump Audio via MIDI you need an XT or X3 model

I'd be very interested to find out if the cables worked.
I've had exactly the same problem as you. It seems that, what should be a simple job is nothing but a complicated and frustrating farce.
Register here, download this, update that, plug this in here, plug that in there, connect this to that and connect that to this, read this, retry that. And the whole time none of it works!
The very basic and simple thing is; I want my POD 2.0 to give me tones that sound like the songs I'm playing. That's all!! I don't need a firework show or a syncranised swimming display. I don't want to negotiate peace in the Middle East or even Middle Earth! I just want my f***ing POD to give me a Nirvana tone.
So, yeah, I'd be very interested to find out if the cables worked.

This is a two year old post. I doubt he'll respond.
It might help if you told us your set-up, what you've tried. What cables you are using, computer etc. Without some info it is difficult to help you.
