HX Edit no device connected

Recommended Posts

I've been away on holidaze for a few weeks.  i just got back and felt i was brave enough to try again to upgrade my firmware and HX edit to the 2.82 versions.   I had tried and failed a couple months ago and  I went back to 2.71 in both the firmware and the edit and was doing fine. 

Today, I hooked up my Helix floor (which is working fine) to my PC running Windows 10.  I cannot get HX Edit to recognize my floor unit no matter what !   I have tried restarts , different USB cables and every 3.0 USB port on my computer.  HX edit was fine before I went away.   All I get is ... HX Edit no device connected 

 

Any help most appreciated ...!

Run the HX Edit 2.82  Install program again, that will reinstall the drivers.

Then run L6 Update to see if it recognizes the Helix at 2.82.

If you are still on 2.71 and don't want to update, I would try to reinstall HX Edit 2.71 (maybe a Windows update has deleted the drivers or something)

 

Because you have issues with the drivers anyway, try to update again. ...I think you are brave enough ;)

-Turn off/unplug the Helix and close all line6/audio software.

-Unistall the line6 software(HX Edit, updater, drivers) and reboot the pc

-Install HX Edit 2.82 - When you get to the options section of the install, leave them all checked.

-Connect/turn on the Helix and start the Updater and update(I hope you have a connection)

(If the update process stucks more than an hour, you should restart the Helix with FS6 and FS12 pressed (update mode))
