Pod X3 crashes hard drive


Recommended Posts


I have ruined 2 HP laptops simply by using my Pod X3 to record (in Reaper with ASIO). Here's what happens.

On both laptops I have had one incident of accidentally unplugging the Pod while it was in use, which led the computer to crash. Following this incident the computer would then crash randomly (fairly frequently) whenever I used the Pod again from then on. After a few times the hard drive failed completely. Ive never heard of anyone else having this problem.

Any ideas on a safer way to use my Pod X3 to record? Thanks!

Sorry my man but this is the first time I have ever heard of this. Never had an issue with an X3 or X3L recording with Reaper. An occassional crash but that was due to the system not the X3. 9/10 a computer crash won't kill it unless the pc already had some fatal issues before hand.
