POD X£ Live wont connect to PC
by rovertdlobwen on 2011-11-30 13:50:39.0030


I just got an X3 live. Downloaded Monkey and Gearbox. Connected the x3 and downloaded all the drivers etc no problem and edited some sounds using gearbox. The next day I plugged the X3 into the computer and now it says that it cannot detect any device. Tried a different USB cable - still wont connect. Tried connecting it to my other PC - still not detected.

Any Ideas?

Is the USB on my X3 knackered?

Hey man,

At my First POD (XT Live) I had this kind of problem too.

I would recommend putting the POD X3 Live into SAFE MODE by holding the RIGHT arrow button on the face of the POD as you turn it on, then, attempt to connect to Line 6 Monkey and re-install the flash memory on the unit.  If that does not help, please make sure to do this on different computers.

If all fails, you will need to take it to an authorized service center:">">
