Question about PfaFF Creative 7570

Open Question

I can't get my new computer to communicate with my Pfaff 7570.

I am currently using a PC with Windows 98 to run my PE design software. I want to use a laptop that has Windows XP, but when I connect it, my machine gives me a error that says I have no communication. Do you know what I need to do to correct the problem?
Thanks
Edwina Ulmer

    Hi Edwina,

    The problem may be with the program & cable you are using to send the designs to the machine, i.e. PCDesigner or Pfaff File Assistant & whether you are using a serial cable (with adapter) or a USB cable. If you could respond with this information, we may be able to help you (lots of years between us working directly for Pfaff).

    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: 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.

I have a 7570 phaff sewing machine and a new windows 7 PC What will I use to transfer my patterns to the machine


Hi franlove
I had the same problem when I upgraded to a laptop with Windows XP. I needed to buy a Keyspan, which connects via the USB on the computer to the machine via the pc connector that comes with the Pfaff 7570. However I had many problems after that, and found that the Keyspan transfer rate had to be slowed down to 2400. Of course 3D is the most recent Pfaff software that the Pfaff 7570 will work with. Anything older is OK.

Hope this helps. I will look up the steps that I went through to slow the transfer speed from the Keyspan if you need me too.

Good Luck

Cannot download patters from a computer that has Windows XP. Sewing machine worked with Windows 95 and 98, but won't with Windows XP.


Sometimes the PC operating system's security will not allow correct installation of software.

You can try to reinstall your software by temporarily turning off the firewall and anti virus programs. Be sure to turn them back on after the installation.

If this does not help, you will need to contact Pfaff support - http://www.pfaffusa.com/4256.html

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.

Pfaff 7570 connection to new XP laptop


In this FAQ list (from PFAFF web) you find 100 times the same question and answer:
H402 My new computer does not have any serial COM ports, so how does it communicate with my Pfaff creative 7570?

You will need to obtain a USB Serial Adapter, which adds a serial port to your computer by plugging it into a USB port. Suitable adapters can be obtained from Belkin [http://www.belkin.com] and Keyspan [http://www.keyspan.com].
The following USB Serial Adapters are known to work with the Pfaff creative 7570:
• Belkin F5U103
• Keyspan USA-19QW
Please note that the Belkin F5U109 is listed as working with the Pfaff creative 2140/2144 (FAQ #H405), but it does not work the Pfaff creative 7570.
