Hi everyone at Line 6 I have to say that I am extremely disappointed in the issues I have been having with regard to updating the firmware of my M9 Stopmbox Modeler, I have very happy with the pedal and when I purchased it second hand was at firmware v1.01 and after checking for updates it was recommended that the pedal be updated to v2.04 to enjoyed the included enhancements and extra effects.
On investigation I have to shoot to the store and get a USB to MIDI interface and at the time thought what the hell, why wouldn't you build this with a USB interface thought about it a little and thought it was probably something to do with the internal mechanism and formats so accepted this. So anyways up I go to the local music shop and picked up the interface $29.95 brings it home and loaded the drivers etc and plugged in the MIDI parts to the M9 and from there had all manner of problems.
I struggled through and used 4 different computers and the same issue occurred M9 Update Failed error code 8000000A try again. Try again I did many times and nothing, had a look through the forums and started to see many others having the same problem and the advice given you need a high end controller..... I am thinking at this point why, the equipment should work with any USB to MIDI interface and I didn't want to pay $60.00 for a controller to do a firmware update.
So I called Line 6 support in Australia and they couldn't help me, at the end of the conversation I was told just keep using it with the V1 firmware or you can bring it to us and we can quote you to update the firmware (I didn't ask how much).
Love the pedal, hate the fact I can't update the firmware as I should be able to with a significant cost to me for a TOP end controller.
