PC won't detect POD Pro


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to connect the old POD Pro to my PC via midi to USB cable.

I can't find the specific drivers on Line 6 monkey and it won't detect it automatically.

I tried the drivers for the POD 2.0, which seemed to having me getting somewhere.


It said 'Turn off your pod, then hold the midi button and power on again', which I did. Then I got this message "Update failed (Code 8000900C) MIDI device timed out for a response

make sure cables are connected and try the update again".


My POD HDX works fine but I'm having no luck with this one.


Any advice would be top banana,

The #1 cause are the cheap usb/midi cables (the $2 ones). Your best bet is to get the MAudio Uno - (try them "in - in" & "out - out" as sometimes that's how it goes with those).


The cheap ones are noted for poor results.



just to say thank you.

I buy a pod pro on ebay in good condition,

and a cheap usb/midi cables with bad results :D

and after a maudio Uno in local store and work perfect!

So thank you for the tip.


Cheers from Portugal
