Podhd500 Drivers Wont Install On Mac

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to plug my PODHD500 into the computer but my Mac OS X V10.8.4 doesn't detect it.
 
I've tried rebooting
I've tried using a different USB
I've tried completing uninstalling all Line 6 files and reinstalling.
I've tried installing the drivers manually from the website and still.
 
When I click the update button in Line 6 Monkey the installation process goes fine. It says that the drivers have been installed and that I need to restart my computer.

Well I restart my computer and open up Line 6 Monkey and it still says that the drivers haven't been installed.
 
Someone help me please?

This is the driver though isn't it? "Line 6 Audio-Midi Devices"

It opens up and it always says the same thing.

It's currently plugged into the back of the Mac USB Port. 

 

Also if the drivers are installed why does the Line 6 Monkey continue to display a caution sign saying that updates are available?

you wouldn't have the icon in sys pref if the drivers weren't installed...

the drivers just aren't working for some reason... i'd try a different usb cable.

that would work... but you might be able to just borrow one from your printer or other usb device to test with.

So the new USB came and I tried plugging it in but I still can't get a connection. I'm thinking there is something wrong with the hardware. Does the USB input look okay in this picture?

Seriously, looks like someone attacked it with a screwdriver or something.  Very broken. Here's an unbroken type B port (mine is actually black in color on my HD, but you see the difference).

Damn I had a feeling there was something wrong with it. 

 

Even when I first got the pod a year and a half ago I would always have to fiddle with the USB plug because it would never lock in. 

 

It was always loose and never secure so the POD that I ordered must've came badly built as it was and I probably just made it worse.

 

Regardless the warranty already ran out so do you guys have any ideas where I can get this fixed?
