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.

Try looking at the FAQ's or the Contact Us if you can't find something. http://www.singerco.com/support

If the machine is new, you should have some kind of warranty.

My top thread breaks about every 10th stitch on my xl 5000. I have bought new thread, replaced needle.....I don't know what to do next! Please help!!!


Try this-When you pull your thread through the channel for the automatic needle threader, make sure you pull back on the thread hard. There is a groove that the thread must pass through to keep it from breaking. I had mine in the shop for the same problem and that is what they had me do. No more breaking.

It sounds like the wrong size bobbin, try calling Singer is your bobbin is right because they should be able to answer why it is acting so strange. Good luck

Your machine needs to go into the shop.

Select a Singer dealer and have your purchase information in case this is something that is covered by your warranty.
