Pocket Pod update failed
by Teis on 2009-11-12 11:45:20

Hi

When I try to update my Pocket Pod Firmware version from 1.0 to 1.01 I get the following error during the update proces:

--

[Flash Memory]

Pocket POD update failed.

(Code 8000900C) MIDI device timed out waiting for a response.

Try the update again, making sure the cables are still conected.

--

Other times, I get the following error:

--

[Flash Memory]

Pocket POD update failed.

(Code 80009000) Unknown MIDI error.

Try the update again, making sure the cables are still conected.

I saw a simmilar post on the forum (http://line6.com/community/thread/20075) but it was quite confusing.

When i disconnect my POD from my computer and start it up, it keeps in the FlashUpdate 1.00 state, so I can't use it at all.

Thanks in advance

Teis

I tried the update on another computer today, and everything worked fine.

I managed to fix it !

It was apparently a conflict with the USB drivers due to Logitech hardware !!!

Here is the procedure I followed :

Correcting Windows Logitech (or other 3rd party) Driver Conflicts
If you are connecting Pocket POD to a computer running Windows XP or Vista but cannot see any ports in the Ports dialog, there is a possibility that you also have Logitech (or other company’s) webcam,
laser mouse or wireless mouse drivers that are conflicting with the Windows USB MIDI driver.
The problem Logitech driver is called LVUSBSTA.SYS. Here is a procedure to clear out this driver from your
Windows XP system, but bear in mind that it involves editing your registry which requires extreme care.
Psicraft Designs and/or Line 6 will not be responsible if you mess up your windows installation while following
these instructions , so if in doubt have a qualified friend perform these steps!
1. Run Regedit from the Windows Start->Run… Menu.
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE /SYSTEM /CurrentControlset /Control /Class / {6BDD1FC6-810F-
11DO-BEC7-08002BE2092F}
3. Click on this key and delete the "LowerFilters" item.
4. Navigate to the folllowing key:
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE /SYSTEM /CurrentControlset /Control /Class / {6BDD1FC5-810F-
11DO-BEC7-08002BE2092F}
5. Click on this key and delete the "UpperFilters" item.
6. Return to the root of HKEY LOCAL /MACHINE /SYSTEM /CurrentControlset /Control /Class /
7. Launch a search (i.e Ctrl-F with the option to search in "Data") and type "LVUSBSTA". Any time this
is found in the "Control / Class" area of the registry, only delete the "LowerFilters" item (which is
where LVUSBSTA will be found).
Now your class-compliant USB MIDI port driver should be operational.

I have the same problem - and the registry-hack didn't help....

Any other idea ?

I tried all usb-ports

OK - I fixed it ..

I tried it on a laptop and i had to use an other power scheme ('always on') - then it worked perfect ;-)

Same problem here, can't detect although I don't have any logitech or webcams connected or installed in the PC. Did the same registry hack... still nothing...
