Question about Singer Quantum XL-5000 Computerized Sewing Machine

Singer Quantum xl-5000

I just bought this machine. I am trying to find out what kind of memory card it reads and the biggest size it can read.

It came with Sew- Ware Conversion software 1.0. It did not complete the installation on my Vista machine but still works. It did install on my XP laptop. When I tried to get the update from Singer the patch says neither machine has Sew-Ware installed.

Is there a cable that connects the machine directly to a computer?

I have the same machine and converter, however, my converter is ver. 2.0. It uses Smart Media Cards either 8MB or 16MB. The 16MB would be the highest you'd want to use. I'd suggest you uninstall the software and re-install it to see if that will help. The converter also has a cable that will allow you to send designs to your sewing machine from the internet. But it first has to go through the converter.

Good luck, the machine is really a very nice machine, you just need some time to learn all the different techniques.

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

Software for singer sew ware 1.0


Ask the dealer for the disk. If they don't give it to you, try the version 2.
As long as it isn't an upgrade from the old version, you shouldn't have a problem.
The read/write card should have come with the machine. Contact the dealer.
Any problems should be reported to the company.

Get error message on my baby lock ELS. Cannot read card


It could be a bad card but more than likely you have a design that is too large for the machine to sew or you have the wrong hoop size set on your software when writing to the card.
Good Luck

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.

Transfer designs to my blank memory card


You need a a Reader/Writer box with a blank Janome memory card (PCMCIA) and Cusomizer software. With that you can move your downloaded .sew designs into Customizer and on to the card via the Reader/Writer box provied that they are within the allowable size constraints.

Reading the Embroidery D-cards


I went back to the place where I purchased it and they told me that it was the difference with the size of the hoops. I had to adjust the hoop size before it would accept the settings. That solved the problems. I thought when it was calibrated, that it automatically reset the hoop size - not so.

Black box inside needs a new fuse. You can open the case covers and find it. Just be carefull you are grounded so as not to send a static charge through your circuitboard and making this a much more costly job.

Cannot get Janome 10001 to read via USB direct link from computer


here's how I do it.
1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files.
2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts.
3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable.
4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software).
5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth.
6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one).
7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar).
8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C).
9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing).
10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.

To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.
