x3 live not detected by monkey or gearbox but pc shows it is connected

Recommended Posts

Just got a used x3 live, flash memory version 1.15, usb firmware version 1.02.

 

I have installed the appropriate drivers and my computer detects the x3 when it is plugged in (asks if i want to use it as the default audio device etc.) BUT when I try and load up line 6 monkey, it will not detect the x3.

Please help!

Do you have the newest version of the Monkey?

 

What OS are you using?

yeah, all the software (except the stuff which is actually on the pod) is the latest version as i have only just downloaded it. I am on widows 7 64bit.

A few other thing to try just to eliminate something simple, new USB Cable, disable anti-virus/firewall, run Monkey in administrator mode.

 

You could also try to uninstall all Line6 software/drivers using their uninstall tool and run the newest version of Monkey starting from scratch.

 

I would try a different computer to help rule out the X3.

 

I know some of the older PODxt's with a firmware of 1.x needed to be flashed via a MIDI cable, but I do not think that is the case with the X3 series.

I will try to get another set of eyes on this.

UPDATE: Using windows virtual pc in XP mode, i managed to get line 6 monkey to at least acknowledge the X3. however, I can't get the pc to talk back to the x3 much. I can't update the flash memory and gearbox cannot change patches. I'm hoping this is just because it's running through virtual PC. I am now installing windows xp properly onto a new partition, hopefully that will have better luck.
