  1. Before I was actually attempting to save to my dropbox folder under my profile (on the system drive). Just attempted to save to the desktop. Same thing. "Failed to backup device. Please try again".
  2. It thinks about it for maybe a second or two before failing with "Failed to backup device. Please try again." I'm just saving to my system (C:\) drive with the default name.
  3. I just happened to check the downloads and noticed... Line 6 released a Spider Remote for Windows. Yay! Notes Be sure to update the driver to the latest (1.86). I couldn't switch tones before that. Backup Spider to file fails for me. There doesn't appear to be any cloud capability. So yeah... Looks like there are still some kinks to work out... but it looks like a good start.
  4. Everything works for me. Sounds like your VM has no network connectivity. Maybe check the hosts firewall / AV configuration?
  5. FYI Here are my thoughts for what it's worth. I've got a Samsung Galaxy S6. Being one of the more popular phones one would think it'd be supported if anything... but Line 6 acknowledges (can't remember where I saw it) that there are ongoing issues with it. Samsung used USB 1.1 instead of USB 2.0 in the S6. I think the connection issues are related to that... so basically any Android device that doesn't support at least USB 2.0 is having issues and I'm not sure it can be fixed with a software update. That's my theory anyways.
  6. MacBook Pro: I think you're out of luck. Maybe Line 6 Updater to update the firmware? Fire HD: I think you're out of luck. Samsung: Depends on the device. Look for "Spider Remote". See above posts for links to the "OTG" adapter you'll probably need (again depending on the device).
  7. BTW The Dragon Touch x10 doesn't require an OTG cable since it has a full size USB port... Just in case that confuses someone.
  8. I agree. Just got a Boss Katana because it's got a decent PC editor... but you can only save 4 tones on the amp itself... and there's no way to tell what's loaded in a given preset without hooking up a PC (i.e. no display like the Spider has)... and no way to edit effect parameters other than a single designated one without a PC. Eh... nobody's got it right. Waiting for the Zoom g3n to come out so I can give that a shot.
  9. Not sure. Are you using the connection labeled "Android" on the back? The only other thing I can think of... I did update the firmware on the Spider V prior to using it with that tablet. Maybe you need to update the firmware (from a PC with Line 6 Updater)?
  10. This is all you'd need. This and an OTG adapter. http://amzn.to/2ioiSH5
  11. Extension Pack: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads By default VirtualBox only supports USB 1.1... which doesn't work well with Spider Remote. Update the VM settings to use USB 3.0 from the extension pack and it'll probably get rid of the connection issues.
  12. Virtual Box: Are you using the USB 3.0 controller available from the expansion pack? Without that it was losing connection for me. A/B feature: This may help... There's a setting to put the looper before the effects... Then you can tweak away and hear the changes real time. Don't like it? Just change your tone without saving and reload the old one.
  13. I'm not sure older iPads have lightning connectors. Does the connector look like this (lightning)? http://amzn.to/2hbeLhw If it looks like this, I don't think that iPad can be used with the Spider: http://amzn.to/2ggB9sD
  14. Just to let people know this is possible... I was able to run Android x86 in VirtualBox connected to the Spider. Screenshot Works well. I can attach the Spider to the VM for control. When I detach it from the VM Windows picks it up in my DAW. Almost as good as having a Windows version of Spider Remote. Additionally, USB audio works from any app. (i.e. I can play backing tracks through the amp while controlling it with Spider Remote). Tips Install the "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack" for USB 3 support. Update your VM settings to use USB 3 (or 2 if your host only has 2). I used the Android-x86 6.0 ISO.
