Did you purchase the 4D reader writer kit? If so, once you've loaded the driver for the reader/writer box, you go to the "organizer", select a design and "send" to your box. If you purcased new, the directions are pretty straight forward; otherwise, you may want to contact your locat Viking dealer for assistance.

Hi Sheila,

Click on start, click on My computer, then look in the left hand menu for View system information and click on it, click on Hardware, click on Device Manager, your VSM reader should show under Universial serial bus controllers, normally at the bottom of the page. If there is a yellow ? mark next to it, it means the driver has not been installed successfully. If so, double click on VSM reader, click on driver, make sure your software CD is in your cd drive and click on Update driver. Should solve your problem.

I had a similiar problem, but I have the Designer SE. In Windows 7 there is an option to run it in a compability mode, so I had to set my program to run in XP 32 bit mode for the 4D software to run. I don't know if it will help, but if the software worked in XP, this should do the trick.

4D d-Card Reader/Writer Kit and Husqvarna Quilt Designer II


Assume you are loading your designs using Organizer? Yes? I have very limited experience of this, preferring to use Disk Manager (but you need to have this program which I am guessing you don't).

It is my understanding that Organizer will only load one design to an embroidery media, not a whole menu of various designs. However you obviously are not "seeing" even one design. Did a pre-loaded Husqvarna card come with your machine? I think it should have, but if it didn't then that doesn't help you very much either.

I am wondering if the D-card is not "formatted" for embroidery recognition. The Designer machines like to receive their designs in a certain file arrangement but I'm afraid I can't offer you advice on how to format the card - I do my formatting through Disk Manager.

However, while I was writing the above it did occur to me - are you loading designs that are the .shv format? Your machine will not recognize .hus, .vip, .vp3 or any other format. Please write back to this group and let me know if any of the above was useful to you. I belong to a Yahoo group that deals exclusively with Designer machines, so I will ask the group members if they can come up with any helpful advice.

Your reader writer will not work unless you have the Husqvarna Viking software to drive it. The first level of the software is called 4D Embroidery. Their web site does a great job at showing the features and benefits. It sells for $400 and if you buy it from your local dealer, they usually offer classes. It is not difficult software to figure out.

I need the driver installation for my reader/writer d-card


Drivers are on the installation disk. 3D will have it on cd#1 and 4D on the dvd. With the disk in the drive, plug the dCard reader/writer in and use the "add new hardware" wizard to allow the drivers to install automatically. Now,either repeat this for each usb port or remember to always plug in to the same port.

Viking Rose can't install System 5 software


You may be able to find an old computer with Windows 95 or 98. Make sure that it also has a parallel port for the older R/W boxes.

You may also find that the 4D Embroidery package will do what you wish to do and it is under $400. 4D Embroidery Extra is the $700 package.

If you only want to put existing designs onto the card with no manipulation, you can get the Reader/Writer kit, $199 MSRP that includes Organizer which will allow you to load 1 design to your card at a time.

Unfortunately, System 5 was replaced by VIP which was replaced by 3D which was replaced by 4D. I don't think that system 5 will run on anything newer than Windows 98.

4D Extra and Reader/Writer


QUESTIONS:

If it's USB you need the 256K card otherwise the regular card, and yes it can work you just have to have the right card for your reader writer.
