I purchased a Rose from a friend which came with the reader/writer but purchased 4D Embroidery Extra software. I then purchased programmable card but I cannot write to the card. Any suggestions? Are 4D Extra and the Rose Reader/Writer compatible?

QUESTIONS:
is the reader writer a USB or parallel cord? (they have both.
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.

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.

Can't get the reader writer's Icon to come up


You have to have the Husqvarna Viking Software installed on your computer for it to work. The first version of the software is called 4D embroidery and sells for around $400. You can see features of it on their web site.

Can't load software w/o the lost Software Licensing code


I too have the 3D Studio, which I purchased from an estate sale. Fortunately, I had the serial number, however I don't have the rest of the registration info to change registration for the program updates. It will not let me install any updates. However, it works just fine without them.

I've heard others with the same problem, and there is no way to bypass their protection codes. Their program also comes with a "dongle", which is a product licensing key, that plugs into your USB port. The program will not run without it. Another item that they will not replace if lost.

I had thought about purchasing another program, but really only needed the new generic reader-writer to plug in to my computer. (It must be an embroidery reader/writer.)

Husqvarna will, however, be happy to sell you another program at great expense.

Alternatively, I would suggest purchasing a more inexpensive program --Embird for expample, and the Ultimate Box (reader/writer) and Card , which will be much cheaper than what the Husky people will sell you. Also, there is no "key" to plug in to operate their program.

Hopefully, the seller can find the registration for it somewhere, because without it, it's pretty useless as far as I know. Husqvarna is very good at protecting their products.

Here is a site with lots of info on both the above items. I bought my reader/writer Ultimate Box Plus and card cheaper from All Brands, though.

Hope all this helps.

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.
