    Pod Hd500x Usb Connection Issue

    Hi, I'll post this in your account as well so be sure to reply there. ;) I agree with the other posts: Have you tried connecting to ALL USB Ports on the computer? Are you using a USB hub? Try another Cable. Ultimately the best way to troubleshoot is to try this on another computer. This will help determine if the issue is related to the computer of a physical issue with the 500X. Also inspect the USB port on the 500, does it look intact? Hold down the DOWN arrow on the D-Pad while powering the 500X up. The LCD will read UPDATE FLASH. Connect it to your computer and reflash with Line 6 Monkey. Also, it could be under powered. Are you using the original power supply? Again, reply back to your ticket. If you respond only to this post I might not see it. Thanks, David Line 6 Customer Support
