Firewire for Pod XT?

Recommended Posts

I simply can't fathom why this information isn't easily available, but I've been searching for a good while now and haven't been able to determine what kind of firewire cable the Pod XT uses.

Anyone knows, so I can buy the correct one?

You didn't mention which version of the Pod XT you're referring to, but I'm not aware of any that has firewire connection capability. As the previous post mentions, it does have USB functionality.


I believe the old 'Bean' versions of the XT have a cat-5 connector for use with accessory floorboards, but still no firewire, as far as I know.

Thanks a lot guys.
Obviously, I'm an idiot. I thought the cable in question was a firewire cable, not realizing it is simply a USB A-B cable. That's a lot of time wasted :D 

I also didn't know there were several versions of the Pod XT. I thought there was just Pod XT and Pod XT Pro or something like that. I just have the regular old Pod XT bean.

Again, thanks!
