Pod Hd 400 - Problem With Pc

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my Pod HD 400. When I plug it pc, the pc don't recognizes the device. I'he installed the drivers, monkey and line6 editor. Nothing. The Pod works great on speakers and mixer. I'hve tried to plug the pod on different pc with different OS: all the same!. I've tried with different cables and it's the same. Someone can help me?.

try a different USB cable... also inspect the usb ports on the device and make sure there are no physical issues.

As I just wrote "I've tried with different cables and it's the same." Thanks for the answer anyway. Port inspected: everything it's ok!.

have you installed the driver package independently of monkey?

have you did a global reset on the pod?

I would add a new information that I missing in the first post. When I plug the Pod at the Pc, the Windows device manager says "Unknown device". A little help please?

The HD400 does not use the program called Line 6 Edit. It uses a program called HD400 Edit. If you are using Line 6 Edit instead of the proper HD400 Edit program, that would explain your problem.

 

Use Line 6 Monkey to help you download and install the HD400 Edit program.

I know, but monkey don't found the device because the pc don't recognizes the device.

did you purchase your hd400 new or used? are you sure you are following the procedure correctly?  try uninstalling line6 software with the uninstaller and start from the beginning.

I have the same problem with my hd300 after i tried to update firmware 2.01 that was not finished succesfully.

Before firmware update anything worked fine. Now the pc just reports unknown device.

I already uninstalled and reinstalled driver and monkey v1.62. I'm not able to install 1.43 as posted in other threads as monkey disappears if i do not agree update.

USB cable and port are ok. I resetted also POD HD300. But nothing helps.

Exactly...the difference with me is that I didn't upgrade the firmware.

perhaps there is an problem with the usb that was undisclosed when you bought it. 

 

there are other people much more informed than i am on this so hang in there and if it can be resolved they will know how to do it.

 

you can also submit a support ticket to line6 directly. go to your account page, the submission form is there.

If it's a newer computer, make sure that it is a USB 2 port, and not a USB 3 port.  USB 1 or 2 devices sometimes work rather dodgy on USB 3 ports.  I recently ran into this problem with my UX-2, as well as a few other devices.  When I removed them from the USB3 ports and put them into USB 2 ports they began to work flawlessly.

Thanks for the procedure.

My Pc has the 2.0 USB port...
