Question about Singer Quantum XL-6000 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I can't get a design to transfer to my sewing from the computer. I even hooked it up with a wire so the problem must be in the sewing machine.

    I just bought a USB Serial adapter, but there are no instructions. I don't see anywhere it is going to fit. My machine is now hooked to a wireless router.

    I have tried all the bits per second. Nothing worked.

    I appreciate you trying to help me.

    I have purchased a USB Serial cable which is connected to the cable which came with the goes from computer to machine. The computer recognizes the Port. I've changed all the settings from high to low (and back) and the bps on the machine matches what is set in the computer. It will not transmit at all. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Callieprince,

I am sure i will be able to help you, but i need more info:

  • Do you connect directly from the machine serial port to an old computer serial port, or do you connect from the machine serial port, via a serial/usb adapter to usb?
  • Does your computer reconize the communication port?
  • If you click on "transfer to machine", there is a port icon, and also a bits per second icon, which can be changed by clicking on the little black upside down triangle. Which ones are you using?
If you can answer my questions, I will respond as soon as possible

I bought a janome 300e .ive purchased designs and have downloaded to my computer. I've transferred them to a disk. . On the computer it says that the designs were transferred.

Check that the designs are not in a folder on the disk. Your sewing machine may need to open that folder before the designs can be found.

Also, check to make sure the OS software on your computer is compatible with your sewing machine. Some sewing machines use Windows 7 or even earlier versions, whereas most new computers now have Windows 8 or 10.

I have a 3D/ Pfaff 2170 Creative & I'm using Windows XP. No device found error. I can not transfer the embroidery design to 2170 Pfaff. Help!

Sounds like you don't have the device driver on you computer for the sewing machine. Question: Did it ever work? If it used to work but doesn't now, try using a different cable from the computer to the sewing machine. You can also try rebooting the computer (with the sewing machine connected and powered up) to see if it will locate the machine.

How do I transfer embroidery designs onto the expressive 900 machine without the digitizing software? Can I even do this?

You can purchase design and send them directy to your sewing machine. It has direct connect PC . Which means you can connect it directly from your computure and transfer designs to your sewing machine. Also you can purchase designs in your format from different web sites. They will E mail them to you. Then save them to a USB stick. You can load them from a USB stick into your sewing machine .Look for 2 gig USB sticks ,because when you use larger ones it takes a long time to load the designs. The only drawback to not owning sofeware is you will not be able to see the designs if you chose to save them on your computure. Embird has a 30 free trial and is reasonable priced. It give you the ability to convert designs from other formats and use them in your machine. It will open zipped designs and acts as storage unit for your designs. I do not represent them but i found that it is less expensive than many companies and works well.

How to transfer embroidery patterns to Brother sewing/embroidery machine

Machine designs first designator is the file name. Your machine shows the file number for the design you want. You do still need to "select" that design number shown to actually begin teh file transfer from a thumb drive or cable direct from your computer if your machine has that feature.

I have a janome 9000 what is a scan & sew

Scan 'n Sew is hardware used to transfer embroidery designs from your computer to the machine's card so that you can embroider that particular design. I have one and love it. It will send a template to your printer as well as the design to the card. It has other functions that I don't use because I use another program to edit designs (Embird).

I can not get my designs i downloaded off line on to my baby lock

You have to have an Amazing Box or similar device and a blank memory card. You hook the Amazing Box up to your computer, put the memory card in it, and transfer the designs onto the card that way. Then you use the card in your machine like any other embroidery card.

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.
