Now my g3n won't connect to guitar lab after updating

Post by Beatnick » Mon Jun 03, 2019 5:10 pm

I hadn't hooked up my G3n in a while, but I noticed someone posted a patch for the song One Vision by Queen on the patch site I use. I hooked it up and it was working fine and then I saw a pop up saying there was a new firmware available (It appears to just be bug fixes, nothing new, but at least support is not completely dead) and a new version of guitar lab available as well. I did both updates and when I start guitar lab it does not seem to be detecting my G3n connected and also says to connect to the internet for new patches. Grrrrrrr.

Any ideas?

Jeez, even tonelib won't work either. It gives me a message that firmware 2.20 is detected and that firmware 2.00 is supported.

Is there a new USB driver available? Do you still have the 2.0 firmware installer? I have it for mac. I'm not sure what would happen if you tried to install an earlier firmware from that tool.

I haven't updated my G3n (I think I saw another warning here).

Definitely reach out to Zoom Support on this one!

The earlier one was for the update to 2.10 and Zoom was advising people to go back to 2.00. I think 2.20 was supposed to fix the issues that were in 2.10.

I'll try reinstalling the driver. That might do it.

Doesn't look like there is a driver for the G3n. There's nothing on the Zoom website. And version 2.00 of the firmware is no longer on the site either.

It suddenly started working, I don't know if my firewall was blocking it at first or what, but it is working now. Tonelib still does not work with firmware 2.20 though. It's a shame because a lot of patches will not load with Guitar Lab for some reason, including the One Vision patch I was interested in. I can't believe Zoom has not fixed that issue yet.

I commented on ToneLib's support forum and the did release an update. All good now. They seem to have better support than Zoom, though I do prefer Guitar Labs, I pretty much use ToneLib when there's a patch that does not load into Guitar Lab or to check out patches on the Tonelib site.

I'm messing with Tonelib a little more now. They do seem to have more user patches. More users I suppose.
