I’m running Windows XP SP3 and cannot get the editor to recognise/see my zoom G1on. I just get a waiting for connection message. I had no problem updating the firmware using the zoom program, and my computer recognises the zoom is connected. Any ideas?

I've managed to get it working on my win7 laptop, so it may be a WIN XP S3 issue..

 I have managed to download the single patches such as the excellent Apache one, but I also have a complete set of the Art D'Echo patches for this pedal, designed to be opened with ZoomLib. But Zoomlib ALWAYS loads with the Zoom Patch exchange threads in the left-hand pane, and it never allows me to load the Art D'Echo patches using the Full Restore button. I had hoped to upload the patches individually, but I cannot do that until I can load them on the predal to split the information. Anyone help? Does ZoomLib exist as a stand-alone, or does it always have the Zoom patch exchange details in the l/h pane?

ZoomLib will work stand-alone.  To do what you want, copy the desired backup file to the ZoomLib backup data directory.
On windows, this is C:\\ZoomLib\
On a Mac, this is the ZoomLib subdirectory in your home directory.

Then when you press the full restore button in ZoomLib, the desired file should be available.

Cheers
Dave

Hi Dave.
Tried your technique, but still cannot open the file. Fortunately Zoomlib worked correctly this time, connecting to the G1xon, and so I can play with the current files. Sadly when I hit 'restore' it will ONLY show files with the Gx1on extension, not the G1on extension , and this is the file I want to load. I have tried altering the file extension, but it still refuses to load it. Of course the file may be corrupted, but since there is no difference ( as far as I am aware, having played with Gx1on and G1on files in Tonelib interchangeably) between the different files, why will the pedal not load files with the G1on extension, and presumably adding the X doesn't fool the program.
Any help gratefully accepted!

Hi Guys.
Just an update-looks like the file must have been corrupted since , by ensuring the file was in the same folder as the Zoomlib program as suggested ( thanks for that tip, Dave) , it now loads correctly without any issues. It could also be that the file extension was G1on, not GX10n to match my pedal, although I am not aware of any differences in the patches between the two pedals, apart from the file extension. I'm going to compare the files later with a file viewer at HEX level, and see if I can work out the problem. Even more importantly, the Zoomlib now opens correctly with a well defined right-hand pane for the pedal, something it did not do  before, and dragging the patches across works well from those on the Zoompatch exchange site. Just remember to log in , or it won't work, as I found!
Incidentally I understand from another member 'downunder' ( I'm in the UK), that he is having issues accessing this site. I have never had any such problems before, and currently it is absolutely fine as far as I am seeing. A server issue, presumably...?
Thanks again,
Mike

Yes, that's me. I'm in touch with Dave separately about this and he is looking into it. Weird thing is I can access this board but not the Patch Exchange which returns the error "unable to load webpage, Try again? Yes/No" Doesn't work. Possibly an issue with servers in AU or accessing a server from AU perhaps? Interested to know whether others are having similar problems. All used to work from here in the past. Not at the moment.

Thanks
AlanB

Hi everyone! I am having the same problem, just downloaded the Editor, it installed properly, but when I run it, it says "Problem loading webpage" Retry? and it is not able to load the webpage.
Any suggestions on what to do will be welcome.

Running a Windows 10 with all updates on a Dell Xps 13. Connected to a G1Xon

Thank you very much

Sorry for the delay everybody - I've been out of action for a little while.

The problem with accessing the patch exchange from zoomlib should be fixed.  As always, fixing one thing can break something else unexpectedly - please let me know if that happens...

Cheers
Dave
