I am by all means a Line 6 fan, but I've recently bought a Line 6 HD400 and I've had NOTHING but trouble with it.
The thing won't even show up on my computer now. Let me explain how this happened.
1. Firstly, when I upgraded the firmware, the thing crashed. There were absolutely NO reason for this to happen, but it did. This left me with the POD unable to do anything. I had to google the problem, and like all Line 6 products, there was the same problem the world over. I managed to fix the problem, and I had to download the firmware AGAIN.
2. The next thing my useless POD did, after I installed the firmware, was not show up on my computer. I had to reset the whole thing for probably the 10th time since I had it. And this REALLY pisses me off because I can't save my presets. Every time I configure a new preset, which takes quite long, the thing doesn't work anymore and I have to reset it, losing all my patches.
3. I run my computer speakers through my POD, then connect the POD to the computer by USB. This makes the pod kinda like a sound card. So right, there I am, listening to music through my POD, and all of a sudden the music stops. Now I did NOTHING with my POD. It worked fine for a couple of days by then. But for NO REASON the lollipop thing stopped. Now I can't even play music because my computer still recognizes the POD as my default sound setting, and for some reason every time I try to change the default speakers, nothing happens. No music. My computer recognizes the pod now, but can't do anything on it. My line 6 Monkey gives me the error( Error: (Code 80007103) Failed read from firmware.) And my POD edit says there is no device connected, though there is.
This is by FAR the worst pedal I've ever owned. It causes me so much trouble. I'll probably sell the lollipop thing for $2.
