Spider Valve 212 Firmware update with Midi.
by danielmecham on 2012-10-20 10:19:47

Hi I'm trying to update the Firmware on my Spider Valve 212 from 1.17 to 2.0 using line 6 monkey and Midi to Usb Cable (bought the wrong FBV).

Followed all the tips and instructions line 6 monkey finds the amp when I start updating firmware it starts even the front panel changes to" ready to update", but everytime it just stops half way through and come's up with a Midi error (code 80000002) invalid parameter. I have checked and re checked cables and and no luck even tried it on a different computer and still the same I have reset the amp to factory settings my switching on the amp and holdind down A. So I'm at a lost any help would be creatful.

Many Thanks Daniel.

I was getting the same thing with my DT50. All I did was use a different USB port on my laptop and it worked.

Hmmmmm...and you downloaded the driver for each USB port ya tried? I also switched the in/out midi cables on my DT50 'cus thier markings were kind of confusing. Just for shits and giggles, try that.

Thanks for your help but tried all that. As for the driver can't realy find it on line windows just update it on it's own. It was a cheap cable of ebay.
