pretty sure that you need an MKII pedal

The RealZap is correct.  The only way to communicate between a computer (and the downloaded presets) and a Spider amp is using an FBV Mk22 Express or Shortboard.

Do not plug the CAT5 cable from your amp directly into an ethernet connection on your computer!

NEVER EVER RUN THE CABLE FROM THE AMP TO THE COMPUTER AND DOWNLOAD!

Seriously, you need the pedal; if you try downloading the patches to the amp without it you'll destroy the amp.

Also, must be a shortboard mkii. The original shortboard will not work, if you are thinking about a shortboard. not sure about the original express, but the express mkii is fine as well.
