POD HD500 cannot connect via USB
by rawalarjun on 2012-02-13 10:49:07


I purchased POD HD 500 in July 2011. It has been working awesome since then. Last Weekend onward its not connecting to any computer via USB. My cable is fine as I have checked other POD HD500 with it. I am a recording artist and now its hampering my work big time. Can we have a solution to it asap ?

My POD Serial Number is 21P5C0L6111011501


Thanks & Regards

What have you tried so far to troubleshoot this issue? What were your results?

What are the specs of your computer? MAC or Windows? Laptop or Desktop?

First make sure to download and install the latest Line 6 drivers for your operating system:

Windows Drivers

style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;">Once the drivers are installed you will need to install the Line 6 Monkey application from the links below:

Windows Line 6 Monkey 1.51:

style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;">MAC Line 6 Monkey 1.51:

style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;">Once Line 6 Monkey is installed, remove any additional unnecessary USB and firmware devices from your computer when troubleshooting this issue. Make sure to connect it directly to a USB port and not a USB hub, extension, or keyboard of any kind, preferably connect it to a USB port on the rear of computer. Try using additional USB cables and every USB port available until you are able to launch Line 6 Monkey and detect the device.

After Launching Line 6 Monkey apply any updates that are available until you have a green check next to each component.
