I did an internet search and only found one other guy with this exact problem. I sent him a PM. I will post here if he found an answer.
Have you tried a different computer? What operating system and computer are you using?

Thanks for responding. I have not tried another computer yet. I am using an older Dell desktop running Windows XP SP3. I updated all the drivers to the best of my ability for the Axiom so I'm sure they're current.
Here's something interesting and may be helpful in determining the problem:
The M-Audio Axiom has certain programs to recall which alter the assigned functions for the extra controlls (knobs, faders, pads, etc.). For example, when running the Axiom with Reason the Axiom has to be on P10 to function correctly. I noticed that when my M9 was connected to my Axiom it can tell the M9 to change scenes, enter loop mode, etc. but only when it's on P01. Is it possible that I need to have the Axiom set to a certain preset (program) in order to update the firmware? Just a thought.

That could be. You should try it. You see, we make sure that our gear works from the jacks in and that Monkey works correctly. We cannot control all the computers and interfaces or begin to. So we will help, but it is probably something in your set up. You could call Axiom and see what they think.
I haven't heard yet from the other guy, if I do, I will post it here for sure.
Let me know if you figure it out.
By the way, I am on Dell laptop with XP and have no problem with Monkey and the Midi Sport Uno from MAudio.

We recommend using a dedicated MIDI device when updating Line 6 gear, rather than a unit that has "courtesy" MIDI outputs. See the following link for more information on updating Line 6 gear via MIDI:
MIDI: Functionality, Control, and Connectivity with Line 6 devices

Alright everyone, I know this is lame but the only thing that finally worked for me is when I bought an M-Audio MidiSport UNO. Once I plugged that into the M9 it updated like a charm! Line 6 neeeeeds to fix this issue though. Why not just put a USB jack on the pedal? Why not make it compatible with other MIDI interfaces? So yes, I hear your pain people, but the M9 is too useful of a tool to pitch it on account of a $30-40 midi-usb device. Go buy one...then you'll never have to worry about missing an update again!

of course if youre an idjit like me you could test the midi set up in the Mac Audio/Midi Setup (Applications>Utilities) and test your midi connection by highlighting your midi device, clicking test set up, then clicking on the in or out arrows with the note icon and seeing how your midi device responds.
mine had out going in and vice versa. so i swopped them correctly
i.e. midi out cable to midi in etc...
not midi out to midi out
midi beginners mistake!
All working perfect now - m9 updated!

I have an Axiom 25 keyboard and I successfully updated my M9's firmware through it
The main information I needed was from the Axiom User Guide in section 4.1 on pages 32 and 33. It's called the “MIDI Out from USB Function”.
Here's an excerpt from the manual on how to do it
To control MIDI out from USB mode:
49- and 61-note versions:
- Press Data 2 and Data 3 together to change the MIDI Out setting to MIDI Out from USB.
- You will see a MIDI plug symbol appear on the LCD display.
- To turn MIDI Out from USB mode back off, press the same button combination again. When you do this, the MIDI plug symbol disappears.
- Press the Advanced button.
- Press the MIDI Out key to activate MIDI Out from USB.
- You will see a MIDI plug symbol appear on the LCD display.
- To turn MIDI Out from USB mode back off, repeat these steps. When you do this, the MIDI plug symbol disappears.
Here's a few tips on MIDI Firmware Updates
- You need two MIDI cables; one for input, one for output. Plug them into the correct ports.
- I think your USB MIDI Device must send MIDI power for firmware updates (SysEx?)
- Before you buy a USB MIDI Device make sure it supports MIDI power
- Don't buy the EMU XMIDI which doesn't support MIDI power.
- The cheap stuff on Amazon and eBay probably don't support MIDI power.
- If you're running a 64-bit operating system make sure your device has 64-bit drivers.
I'm sort of new to MIDI but I hope this helpful for everyone.

Well I am new to the m13 family and have had some issue's just learning how to use the unit. I have to say I followed the directions to the T and successfully updated my m13 to v2.01. I have winxp s.p3, I d/l'd midi ox like they said and bought the midisport uno and everything worked perfect. I have to say it wasn't terribly hard but on the other hand I have experience with things of this nature, I am a service tech for big company for living. Also it is not terribly easy either if your a guy or kid that just knows how to get online and surf youtube. You have to have a little knowledge on files and folders.
If you take it step by step you should be ok, don't assume it's like any other download you do and just next your way through, it doesn't work like that. One thing I found very IMPORTANT was under software when searching for the drivers, it doesn't say firmware it says flash memory so keep that in mind. That is about the only thing that had me hung up for a minute trying to find.
I am understanding this unit's potential more and more everyday and think line6 hit a homerun with this product. Now that I know how to use the 4cm and set unit to postfx1 or whatever one I want,, amp sounds amazing. Good luck people, I will try to assist with what I know now that I have been through this.

I had the same problem at first. I ordered a really cheap midi cable and was thinking that it was just the cable, and I was very disappointed. But then I swapped the MIDI in and out connectors and it worked perfectly. On my cables it had IN and OUT written on them so I naturally connected the IN to the IN on the M9, OUT to OUT. Swapped them and viola.

and one day i think 3 day ago was stop working and cubase sound and line 6 program
i cant connect the amp on softwere anymore.

I had this same error code (Code 800000A) problem. I use a MIDISPORT 2x2 adapter (it has two MIDI ports) connected via USB to my Mac. I corrected the problem by ensuring that the little button on the MIDISPORT was set to the USB (depressed) state, and that the MIDI cables were connected properly (i.e. the MIDISPORT PORT A OUT was going to the M9 MIDI IN, and the MIDISPORT PORT A IN was coming from the M9 MIDI OUT.)
