Hello! I


have a POD XT  Live. Today I turned it on after some monthes pause of using. As I was going through the presets I get the message "this tone contains an amp or effect from an expansion pack you do not own" when choosing some of them.


I cannot use monkey because it can't to recognize the POD XT LIVE with the USB cable. I tried new USB cable, all USB ports in my comp, deinstall and re-install line6 drivers. Windows can't see the device. Also I connected POD to another computer, installes drivers, connected POD, and had the same problem It doesn't see the POD via USB cable.


How can I solve the problem?


Thank you in advance!

is it possible that you simply don't own the expansion packs, and the tones just aren't supposed to work?

You need to install the License manager and re authorise the devices. Had the same problem the other day with mine. (Had it 7 years, but the expansion packs disappeared when I attached to the latest Monkey software..all was well when I loaded the License manager and authorised the kit).
