USB embroidery stick erases

When I transfer my designs from computer to the embroidery stick, (for Designer I, Viking) it always says 'all designs will be erased'. I want to retain designs, and even move to a different menu (there are about 12 on the stick). Why can't I retain the other designs and just build up all 12 if I want? Annoying.

    Hey thanks for the solution! When I first got the Designer I, it had the floppy disk unit. However, as you know, this is very old technology, and didn't always work either. So, I spent even more money to upgrade the Designer I to the USB stick. They had paperwork with it, but I didn't find much help other than that. You are a gem to have helped me. This machine is very expensive and I was really getting frustrated. However, I tried it out immediately, and voila! all designs stay. That's so cool.

If you got this machine from a sewing machine dealer, shame on them for not describing how to handle this issue.

When you open your Disk Manager USB application to add designs, first read the stick. This will take all of the designs into Disk Manager. Now you may select where you want the new designs to be added and you can delete old ones that you don't want on the stick any longer. Now, write to the stick. Yes, all designs will be erased, but read them first so they will be written back onto the stick.

If you are into computers you may understand fragmentation of the hard drive and the need to occasionally defrag. By erasing the stick and rewriting it each time, we avoid fragmentation and maximize the storage space on the stick.

By the way, if you purchased your machine on-line or through a private party you should check with your local dealers and see if one of them may have an adoption service. Some dealers frown on private sales of machines, but some of us see it as an opportunity to get a new person interested in what we do. There will usually be some type of fee for receiving the same services that a dealer offers to customers who purchase in their store. It never hurts to check around.

Transferring DVD designs to USB stick for my Husqvarna Designer 1


First you need your 4D software installed on your computer (or which ever version you are using). Insert the DVD into your drive. Then open your embroidery program and then click File and Open. When the new window opens, search for your DVD drive then find the embroidery you want and click Open. The embroidery yoiu chose should open in your embroidery program with the hoop displayed on the screen. Then save the embroidery under a new name in your embroidery design folder on your computer. Then insert your USB into your computer, Open Disk Manager and Read your USB. Then click on one of the empty squares and then click File then Open. In the new window find the embroidery file you saved under a new name on your computer and choose it. It should show up in the empty square you clicked on. Then Write to your USB. Now you are ready to move your USB to your machine and the embroidery should be there. Hope this helps. Good luck.

USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash


I have a Designer I USB that suddenly started not reading the usb stick that came with the machine. I was terrified that my machine was going bad, but I always start with the cheapest solution first. I bought a new usb stick, loaded the designs from the old one into my software then loaded everything on the new usb stick. My machine reads it every time so far. I replaced the usb stick about 3 months ago and have not had another problem since. I don't know if this is your problem, but usb sticks can go bad and since they are so cheap, I would try this first.

I the floppy discs that control my Designer 1 embroidery machine


You can have replacement discs ordered from Husqvarna Viking. Visit an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for them to order the replacement discs. However, you might luck out and they have some already on hand from a scrapped machine or a trade-in. You can find your nearest dealer by visiting the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com and clicking on dealer link down the left side of the page.

Good luck.

What Version of VIP customizing is for Designer 1 USB stick


When you purchase the Husqvarna Viking software it comes with a code key called a "Dongle". It plugs into a usb port and "unlocks" the software. You can't just load the software and have it work without the dongle and you cannot just purchase a dongle. That software is about 3 versions old and is not being supported anymore by Viking. Their new software starts at $400 and is called 4D embroidery. Their web site shows what it can do.

Husqvarna Embroidery card reader/writer


Hi - I think you have a Viking Designer 1, which has a slot for a floppy disk on the side of the machine. If so, you need to purchase embroidery software that supports file type .sv1, and you will need to buy floppy disks.

You can buy embroidery software from Viking that will allow you to write design files onto floppy disks, but you can find other embroidery software packages that support the D1 which cost quite a bit less - make sure that file type .sv1 is supported before you buy.

Viking does sell designs that come on a D1 floppy disk. You can just pop the floppy into the machine, select you design, and go. You can find Viking designs online from time to time, but before you buy, ask if a floppy is included - the newer Viking design packages come with a DVD but might not include the floppy for the D1.

Hope this helps, Ginny

If you have a Viking #1+, you won't be able to use floppy disks with your machine. Please repost and I'll tell you what to look for.

Embroidery stick


You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.

When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.

Enjoy your fantastic machine

Buying a used Husqvarna Rose or what other recommendation?


The Designer 1 technology is far more superior to the Rose. The Rose technology is so far behind that you can not update the software any more. The Designer 1 comes now with a USB stick, and you can download unlimited designs from the internet and transfer to your machine.

The Rose is a very good machine but you will be limited in the use of the machine.

If you can afford it buy the Designer 1
