Pod X3 Live Usb Device Not Recognized

error usb pod x3

You are right, support is still available till end of this year. They couldn't provide a solution because Gearbox won't be updated.

But.... Last night after trying few things got it working and the funny thing is that what it causes Gearbox not to work on Mavericks is not Gearbox itself but the latest driver with the added support for Mavericks. This is what I did:

To remove driver 7.3.6

1- On a terminal run this command   sudo pkgutil --forget com.line6.driver.xtaudio.package (enter)

2- Then this sudo pkgutil --forget com.line6.driver.xtmidi.package (enter)

3- Reboot

To install driver 7.2.9

4- Downloaded driver version 7.2.9  http://line6.com/sof...a.html?rid=5675

5- Run the 7.2.9 driver package to install it and ended the process with a reboot

 

After that Gearbox is working on Mavericks, at least that was my experience.

Hope this helps

But does the old 7.2.9 driver work with Pod Farm 2.5.6?

Ok, on Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), doing the steps above causes Line 6 Monkey to show the Drivers are not installed, and attempting to reinstall the latest version no longer works. Tried it on two different machines. So now I have no working drivers and GearBox doesn't even partially work.

 

Guess I'll try Line 6 support before the end of the year.

 

I've been thinking about updating to the POD HD500, but don't because:

1. its been in production for a while now, and I don't want to get caught with old technology at this late date

2. not enough bass amp models

3. no mic preamp models

4. no acoustic guitar amp models 

 

I use my POD L3 Live with a Variax 700, mandolin, electric guitar and some bass for performances. So I need the flexibility.

I see that POD Farm doesn't really need the drivers unless you're using it with an X3 as the input/output device. I never do that, so I really only need the drivers for editing convenience. Hope Line 6 addresses this as Mavericks was introduced before the products were discontinued.

Hello, I have a pod x3 live and on display there are this information:

 

usb firmware ver 0.00

 

It's a hardware problem?

I must change the my Pod?

 

The problem is that not possible to connect at PC because X3 live use only the usb port. Why isn' t possible to use the midi also? with a midi interface.

 

Someone can help me if there' s some software procedure for to resolve this problem?

Thank's

The link in Alejandro's post is not pointing to the right software. This is the current link for 7.2.9 (as of Feb 2014):
