Question about Singer Professional Sew Ware Options 2.0 (CDM556OPTIONS)

1 Answer

I bought a XL6000 from a friend and it came with Sew-Ware Conversion Tool software. I'm trying to load onto my laptop which has Windows Vista. I can't get it to come up. Do I have old software?

    Did you get your problem solved? I, too, have Vista. I have the software loaded, but can't get the designs to transmit.

    I have the same problem and can't find any help, Singer never answers the phone. Does anyone know what to do? The software loads but when I connect the usb, it won't recognize the drivers.

    I, too, have Vista. I also have the software loaded, but can't get the design to transmit. Singer on phone has been no help!!

    My laptop has Vista and my brand-new XL6000 came with the Sew-ware software, which won't even load -- I keep getting the message that the file was "unable to create a dialog" for every part of the software. I've been all over the internet looking for an upgrade or patch, but so far no luck.

  • adjones693 Feb 08, 2009

    I have the software loaded now, I've bought a USB to Modem Cable but still can't get it to transmit. I even bought a Smart Media Card and tried to save to the card and put the card in the reader on the machine. No luck. VERY FRUSTRATED.

To either transfer/transmit from a computer to the XL6000 or for the XL6000 to recognize/read a design card: The Embroidery attachment must be attached/installed on the XL6000.

I found the FAQ section very helpful. (I printed it out for future reference.)

Singer.com's FAQs provide the following:

Q. My computer only has USB ports. Can you recommend a Serial (nine pin) to USB converter cable that will work with the Professional Sew Ware™ 2.00a? A. We have found that the PSW works best on newer computers when the USB serial adapter cable has not only compatible drivers for the Windows operating system but also a FTDI chip. We have found this FTDI chip in the cable which is listed below:
CUSB-232A available from Computerplug.com and Cablesalesusa.com.
Any USB to serial adapter with an FTDI chip will work. These cables will work for Windows XP, VISTA, and 7.

I own a Quantum XL 6000. I need a patch for my sew ware conversion software to download onto my new laptop which uses windows vista. Where can I find this patch?


GO TO USA CABLES AND ORDER #CUSB-232A WHICH IS A 3' USB TO SERIAL ADAPTER INSTALL IT ON YOUR LAPTOP AND IT WILL WORK WITH VISTA, THIS IS THE CABLE THAT SINGER RECOMMENDS TO USE, THEN AFTER IT IS INSTALLED PLUG IT INTO THE NULL MODEM CABLE AND IT SHOULD READ THE SEW WARE CONVERSION. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL OTHERS AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I CAN GET TO WORK WITH VISTA.

What do I need to format a Smart Card for the Quantum XL 6000? My machine came with PSW but it isn't there. Does Embird work for this?


DID YOUR MACHINE COME WITH PSW (IF SO THAT IS GREAT BECAUSE IT IS AN 800.00 PROGRAM) OR DID IT COME WITH SEW WARE CONVERSION? YOU USE THE PSW LIKE EMBIRD, AND YOU CAN USE THE SMART CARD TO SAVE YOUR DESIGN ONTO AND THEN INSERT INTO THE SLOT ON THE XL6000, OR SEND IT TO YOUR MACHINE THROUGH THE SEW WARE CONVERSION AND NULL MODEM CABLE. YOU CAN USE EMBIRD FOR YOUR DESIGNS BUT TO GET IT TO THE XL6000 YOU NEED TO SAVE IT TO THE CARD OR GO TO SEW WARE CONVERSION.

The software and indeed the xl-6000 will not work with a 64bit system.I had the same problem.I bought a used laptop 32bit and windows xp and it works perfectly.You can get a serial/usb adapter to use with newer pc that doesn't have serial port,but you still need 32bit system.

Hi,

Not sure if it will help, but you may need to download a patch for this to work, but perhaps you could try this webpage http://www.psw-support.com/Downloads/downloads.htm or you could try this one www.jennys-sewing-studio.com they are also very helpful at times, or perhaps you might consider joining this group TeamSewAmused-subscribe@yahoogroups.com they are very helpful.

Having trouble finding driver for Quantum XL6000.


Your USB to serial port should also come with a driver. Check the packaging. You need to install the driver in order for your computer to pick up the adapter.

Sew-ware does not come with the sewing machine. You just have the conversion tool. Professional Sew-ware 2.00 converter box is sold optional. Do a google search and you will see what I am talking about. Your sewing machine reads from a smart card that comes with the PSW 2.00 converter box. There is a cable that can connect your machine directly to your computer...Terrie
