POD HD500 Edit problem
by Da_Funk on 2012-01-03 13:39:31.5260


I've got Pod HD500, sometimes when i'm working with HD Edit some bug occurs (see attachment).

After that when i'm trying to receive preset from HD500 HD Edit may crash.

This usually occurs when i move stompboxes in the chain (not every time), but it may happend on a new preset when i choose an amp.

Reinstalling and reflashing did not help

HD Edit version - 1.06.0

Firmware version - 1.40

Driver version -

Connected to a PC (WinXP SP3) using the bundled USB cable.

I see your problem. Look at the left corner... the banks 1A, 1B... should have the patches loaded. So your HD500 edit isn't loading your unit.

Probably when you run HD500 you get this screen:


What you should see before anything should be this:


So the first question is: is HD500 edit loading your tones? As far as I saw on your screen, the answer is "no".

So probably you have drivers problem. Have you tried running Line6 Monkey to check the version of your drivers and also the connection?

Yes. This is an empty tones.

There are no problems with connection to the PC.

Everything works fine, but the problem occurs frequently.

Have you tried uninstalling HD 500 edit, restarting your computer and installing HD500 edit again?

Yes. I also tried different versions of HD Edit - same problem.

Update: the problem occurs most often when running any DAW and ASIO resources are used

Yep, I get it occasionally too.  I also get problems with patches looking fine in HD Edit and on the display, but the amp sounds disabled/turned down on the unit.  Moving a hardware knob on the unit itself restores the patch to what it should be.

I would suggest to try a global settings reset and then a pedal calibration.

We have instructions on how to do both of these procedures available at the link below:">">

After performing these, try it out again to see how it works. If you still are receiving a problem, please do your best to provide us with a step by step recipe to reproduce the problem. Provide us with a patch as well if the patch is neccesary to recreate the problem.

You know that happens to me then I get a thousand decibel squeel. See my thread looks like the same problem. The global reset solution doesn't work.">">

I would recommend removing all other USB devices from the computer and testing the POD on all of the computer's USB ports.  Completely remove ANY USB hubs, even if not in use, and test all of your ports with the POD.

Let us know if anything changes.
