Here's an update to anyone interested. I can't get drivers to be recognized via the newest Monkey but in a very old version it can see them and it says installed.
The USB firmware will not update (its version 00000 LOL). I re-flashed and reset it to factory settings three times, trying the newest first and then going to the original to see if that would work. I also Installed the first set of drivers that came out and progressively installed them all to see if USB support would be updated. It hasn't been.
I installed the all drivers and then the new Monkey to see if it would see my drivers and it doesn't so I keep going back to the old Monkey and again it does, even the newest drivers. There's no USB firmware anywhere I can find on the LINE 6 site here.
It seems there is also another issue. I was able to get the LINE 6 PodXT USB support thingy that's located in my system preferences (MAC) and earlier versions did not support Intel based MacIntosh computers. I was later able to get a version that is supported by Intel Macs but the problem is it wont detect the PodXT when its connected via Midi or USB (obviously it wouldn't through Midi). Monkey recognizes the pod when hooked up Midi so at least I know there's something that works.
More food for thought (sorry this is so long but I could use some help), When I'm in the monkey program theres a question mark next to USB Firmware and when I click on it to see if I can update it I get something like:
"This can only be updated via USB connection, please plug in your device, BLAH BLAH"
So I disconnect it from Midi and plug in USB (I know it won't work but....) and It says something again like:
"No device detected but choose your device from the drop down menu and Monkey can walk you through how to set it up"
I assume it means even without the device connected it can download the right USB firmware and then I'd be able to install it etc... Well it doesn't walk you through a Got Dang thing LOL
There has to be something I'm doing wrong, or at least there has to be a way to make this work... I mean plenty of people have apparently. I was doing all this for hours and I'm getting really annoyed but I'm not giving up!!!! FINISH WHAT YOU START I keep telling myself lol.
