Pfaff 7570 software

I have a Pfaff 7570 & PE design software that I purchased from a friend several years ago. I have been using the software with a PC containing Windows 98. The computer is slowly dying, but whenever I try to use another (laptop with Windows XP, windows 2000), I can not get it to communicate with my machine. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Edwina Ulmer

    Hi Edwina,

    The problem is likely in the program you are using to send designs to your machine - either PCDesigner or Pfaff File Assistant and/or the cable - serial w/adapter or USB.

    Please respond with this information and we'll do our best to sort out your communication problem.

    Hope to hear back from you soon,
    Kim & Linnette

SOURCE: no communication between pfaff 7570 and computer

It sounds like you have it configured properly if you have the little machine and computer appearing on the display screen. I had this problem too in the beginning, file assistant doesn't use the files for the 7570 its only for some of the newer machines, use Vip customize to send the design to the machine from the file drop down menu. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 7570 connection

I have Windows Vista; I also had a similar problem; found out that I could only use the usb port on my computer exclusively for sewing as the driver software seems to conflict;
Also, having said that, go to Pfaff.com & download the free driver upgrade and see if that will get you started good luck deb

SOURCE: Pfaff 7570 connection to new XP laptop

I bought a 25 pin female RS-232 to USB cable from a computer repair store. It works great. You will have to install the software that comes with it so the computer will know that it is a serial port.

SOURCE: connect PfaFF Creative 7570 to a PC

The software you need to connect the Pfaff 7570 to the PC and to create your designs is called PC-Designer version 2.2 from Pfaff. You may be able to find a used copy. The software should come with a dongle (special cable) for connecting the machine to the PC. Make sure you have this piece because it will not work with an ordinary cable. Depending on what type of port you have on the PC to connect to, you may also need an adapter since the dongle has an old style connector on the end going to the PC. If you are going to create your own designs, you will also need a storage card which inserts into the machine that you send the designs to. Pfaff makes one, called the creative card. I have also used a generic card meant for the pfaff; the generic card is less expensive and has a greater capacity. You can find many designs online either free or for sale to send from PC to Pfaff as well.

What format does the Pfaff 7570 use for embroidery?


The format that is used by the 7570 and the 7560 is *.pcs or *.dst. Either one will work provided that the designs are within the confines of the hoop. The largest size design that would be embroidered by this machine would be 115 x 120 MM.

Do you have orcan you find a creative card for pfaff 7570


If you are looking for blanks, I could not find any.

You may have to go this route - http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp08586-0165.html always check with the vendor before purchasing to be double sure this will work with your model Pfaff.

If you are looking for design cards - there are several listed on Ebay.

Pfaff 7570 program


I have somewhere that installation diskette (with the old SW version). If I'm not mistaken it was not included with the sewing machine but sold separately with the embrodery arm that we bought together with it some 10 years ago. Email me to azach@kci-medical.com if you need more help.
