I have been having problems updating my Firmware, for some reason computer is sending the information from my computer to the USB ( lights flashing ect) but the pedal is still on the waiting for commands screen, on my midiox I cannot change the buffering miliseconds to 101 as sudgested by Line6, In the advanced dropdown box there is a button for buffering and all this has is two boxes and no box to change the milisecons

 

 

any assistance would be greatefully recived

john

Try using this program instead: http://www.bome.com/products/sendsx

 

Also, make sure you have your MIDI cable(s) connected in the right way. The cable from your adapter's OUT goes into the M13's IN. Also, you don't need the second cable. You only need the M13 to receive data.

I found it to be pretty finnicky about the midi interface. It wouldn't work at all with one of mine, worked fine with a different interface.

I should have asked what interface you're using... So what are you using as an interface?

Just went through this on my M13. Make sure you have a "good" USB -> Midi cable. The M-Audio Uno is a known good cable as is iConnectivity Mio. I fiddled for hours with a cheaper cable I bought from Amazon and it simply would not work. You could absolutely tell that the PC was sending Midi commands to the device, but it would never change from the "Waiting" screen. Once I picked up the Mio cable, it worked instantly with the same settings.

technically any midi interface should be up to the task, we're just relaying that the most hassle free and most successful one is the m-audio UNO.

you can always try other ones.. i've had mixed success with the cheap 5$ ebay one...

i've had much greater success with the m-audio UNO.

I had to buy an M-Audio Uno (my original cheap midi usb interface wouldn't allow me to upload the firmware update to my M13) and it worked instantly when I followed the instructions available on the Line 6 M13 Firmware update site.
