That's another step I attempted but forgot to mention. I tried 4 different ports with no luck (these ports normally are used for my wireless mouse, an external hard drive, an iPod, and a magicjack).
I'm wondering if it's a driver issue with my version of Windows? Or maybe the POD itself. I bought it used, and I don't know how many people had it before me.

shouldn't matter that it's used, seeing as how it worked at one time or you wouldn't have got the firmware updates....
try uninstalling the drivers, and then downloading JUST the drivers and re-installing them, outside of monkey

I noticed you can download the flash memory from that same link, but I don't know how to use it. In any case, I've got an HD Bean on order anyway, I was just trying to see what this was all about. I'll just have to give it a shot when the new one gets here.

to use the downloaded firmwre file you would select the firmware in monkey and click the flash from file button...
won't work though if your computer isn't seeing the XT....
i think you'll like the pod HD, should work with the same floorboard as the xt if you have one...
or maybe you could sell your xt after you get it for floorboard money!

I very recently experienced the same problem.This was solved by an uninstall of Line 6 Edit ,clean up of the registry (I use a freeware program called Crap Cleaner) and then a reinstall.
I still have problems with digital artifacts (like a strange language in the background of the forum screens) and also Line 6 Edit and Gearbox crashing when rearranging and transferring tones.
I am able to use my XT just fine,seems to be a Windows 64 bit issue.
If I recall correctly you must recieve a support ticket for direct help from Line 6,and I wouldnt hold my breath.Try cleaning your registry with one of the free programs available.Hope I was of assistance.

I suggest putting the PODxt into SAFE MODE, then, attempt to re-install or update the flash memory on the PODxt.
This can be done by holding the first of the 4 soft black buttons under the LCD screen (leftmost) as you power on the PODxt. The display should read SAFE MODE.
Once in this mode, connect to Line 6 Monkey and check to see if you can update or re-install the flash memory.
If the problem persist, I suggest trying on a different computer to isolate the problem.
