Four questions:
What model Husqvarna sewing machine are you using?
Are you using a Husqvarna formatted USB stick?
Is the embroidery unit attached when you put in the stick?
Is your machine using the latest version of its software?

I might be able to give some more specific help once I know the answers to the above.

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.

I just bought a used Designer 1 ESS machine and I do not know how to use the dongle


You don't need a dongle for the sewing machine. You either have a dongle for the computer embroidery software in which case it goes in your computer when you've installed the software, or you have a USB stick that has the Husqvarna designs on it.

What colour is it? The USB sticks are blue, the 3D software dongles are red. Only problem is, I think the 4D software dongles are blue too!! My Husqvarna Designer 1 USB embroidery stick (blue) has "USB Embroidery Stick" written on it - have a look for that. The dongle will have Hasp or something like that written on it.

If you are pretty sure it is a USB stick, put it in your machine and turn it on. Then touch the disk/stick icon on the lower right hand side of the screen. Your machine should start to read the stick and you will get a pop-up menu where you can choose from the folders on the stick. If you don't, go into the PROG screen. Touch MENU, touch the disk/stick icon and see if the embroidery files on the stick come up then. Each machine came with a set of designs called Embroidery Disk 100 and three alphabets - Palace Script, Kaligraphia and Clarendon. These should all be on the USB stick.

In the event that it is a dongle you have, but not the software, you need to contact the person from whom you purchased the machine.

You can download the Husqvarna designs from the Husqvarna website, but you will need a Husqvarna formatted USB stick to do this. Therefore, you do need software on your computer. There are some low-cost alternatives to the Husqvarna software - Embird and Sew What come to mind. However, a Husqvarna program called 3D Disk Manager USB came with every USB Designer 1 machine, so you should have got that when you purchased the machine. This will be enough for you to load designs from the HV website and from other websites where you purchase designs.

I have downloaded 5 x 7 designs which I have placed in my documents file and need to transfer them to my dongle for the designer 1 machine but have no idea how to do this - please advise if you can help me...


Okay. Firstly, a dongle is the security device for your software so you won't be downloading designs to it. Do you have a USB Designer 1 or a floppy disk Designer 1? I'm guessing USB. You need to load designs onto your USB stick - the Husqvarna one or another generic brand one - same process for both - through Disk Manager 3D program on your computer. This program is part of the 3D or 4D software suite, or you should have got it on a CD with your machine. It is a stand-alone program - you don't need all the other 3D or 4D software to run it.

Your "dongle" is likely a blue USB stick that came with the machine, yes? Do this:
Open Disk Manager program;
Insert USB stick into your computer;
In Disk Manager at the top menu bar you will see a little USB stick icon and a down arrow; click on this and the contents of your USB stick will be read to the Disk manager screen;
Now you load the designs you want to use into empty menus. Empty menus are the grey ones on the left-hand side. Click on one of those and four sub-menus become available. Open one of these (while you are still getting familiar with all this, write down the disk No. and menu No. you are about to use - makes it easier to find your designs at the machine);
You load designs by either clicking on the little blue camera icon (this will bring up thumbnails of your designs) or the file with green curved arrow icon (this will bring up your computer's files - like a Windows window). Navigate your way to where you have your designs saved, just like using Windows windows. If you are using the camera/thumbnail choice you can click many times on the designs and they will load as you go. If you are using the folder/file method you can only load one design at a time then have to re-open the icon.
Once you have populated your menu with the designs you want to embroider, click on the USB Write icon (blue USB stick and Up arrow).
You will be warned that all designs will be deleted. AS LONG AS YOU HAVE CLICKED ON READ USB STICK BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE as per instructions above, all will be well. Your new designs will be written to the stick along with the existing designs that you read into Disk Manager.
Make sure the stick is NOT write protected. Can't remember which way the sliding clip should be for the blue HV stick so if it doesn't work one way, try the other. I think it is away from the computer - but not 100% sure.
If you have your own USB stick that you want to use, open Disk Man., insert your stick then under the Disk menu you will find Format USB embroidery stick. Click on this and it will do it for you. You can still use your stick for Word files, photos etc - just don't load it up with these files. It confuses the HV software if there are loads of non-embroidery files on the stick. Once formatted, your stick will work just like the HV one.
I trust you are okay on how to use the stick on the Designer 1 machine itself? Write back if you need help here too.

You can't just copy the files to the stick, you need to do it through the Husqvarna software, which then writes the files in a format that the sewing machine can read

Downloading designs from the internet


Disk Manager is part of Customizing software, in case you were wondering if you needed to buy more software. Ask again if you are having trouble locating it. You also need to format your floppy disk in Disk Manager before writing your designs to it.

Embroidery unit


Do you have a hoop already on when you first re-calibrate the embroidery arm? You need the embroidery arm ONLY when you first turn on. Don't put the hoop on until you are ready to start embroidering. If this is not the problem, try re-loading the machine operating system. If you did not save your floppy or USB file, go to Husqvarna website and download the latest one, and re-load it. (Be sure to select the correct file for your particular machine i.e. floppy or USB.)

Embroidery stick


You need to wait a minute or so after inserting the stick before touching the icon on the screen. This is my procedure, which works for me:
Machine off; put on embroidery arm; turn on machine, calibrate embroidery arm; start to hoop project, look out threads etc for a little while (the machine's internal computer is "booting up" in this time); insert USB stick (make sure it lights up); finish hooping, thread machine for first colour etc for a minute or two; touch stick/floppy icon; design menus load; continue making my selections.
If you get a message "no disk" or something like that, push the stick in tighter - but don't be too rough with it!
The sewing machine actually has a computer inside it, and it needs time to do its thing. It is unfortunate that the internal computer is a very slow one! We are such a "now" generation, it is very frustrating having to wait. I do find that if I occupy myself while I am waiting, it is not such a nuisance and I avoid the temptation to just keep jabbing at that icon until something happens.

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
