I hooked my Pod HD up to my pc via the USB plug it came with, and while I can hear my guitar - There is a constant static in the background. It won't change no matter what I do. Different cables. Different guitars. Moved the amp. Moved the Pod...

Does anyone know how to fix this? It's driving me up the wall.

I've tried that. It happened out of the box on day one and does it across multiple computers/amps/guitars. All the contacts have been thoroughly cleaned. It produces a steady static that stays the same volume whether the amp is low volume or high. It happens in 'Effects returns' or 'input'.

It happened with my last 2 Pod devices as well. I figured there was some supersecret setting I just need to find because it seems no one else has this issue.

Is it just noise? Have you tried putting a noise suppressor or hard gate in your patch?

Laptop or Desktop?

Some laptop power supplies will do that.

It is just 'noise' but its not controllable at all. It is exactly the same if my volume is at 1 or if it is at 10.

It is a desktop computer.

I remember way back I had a Pod XT that would do that randomly. Can't remember if there was a solution because I didn't really use it with a computer anyway.

Get an interface and send the signal to your computer through the regular line outs. The USB i/o on the PODs ****ing sucks.

The problem is I need the pod plugged in so I can use the HDEdit program.

In reality I'll probably just sell this and get something simpler. since POD 2.0 they have overcomplicated things for casual users. Its an amazing device with extreme possibility but I don't have the patience.
