Can't get Machine to accept software from computer

I have installed PSW Software and have the cable connected to my computer and my machine. I have also installed drivers that came with serial port and cable. When I try to transfer it seems to be working on the computer side but the machine gives error. Can not accept...
Does anyone know if there is a difference in a serial port and and I/O serial port. When I bought the cable and serial port the technician told me that was all I needed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. My children gave me my machine for Christmas and I would love to be able to do some things for the grandchildren.

Theoretically, yes, it should be all you need. But It has been found that not all USB/Serial cables work equally well with the PSW. Many customers have tried several before they found the one that worked with their machine/computer. If you have a Vista OS, you must have Vista drivers for the cable. Try going into Advanced settings and reduce the transmit and receive buffers.

The Baud rate must be set the same on both the machine and the computer. It doesn't matter which rate you choose to use, as long as both are set at the same number. Try each of the 4 settings to see if one of them will work.

Another avenue you might try is to write a design to the Smart Card media, but I am wondering if you really have the SewWare software or the PSW software? Can you clarify this, please

I'm sure you will be stitching soon.

This is techcrazy

The machines have a series of sensors that tell the computer how all of the machine components are positioned. so the problem in your machine is due to sensor.which do not get positioned properly to do the stitches.so check out for the sensors and also do check out for the removable memory disks or cartridges so that they do not have any defects.

kindly rate me on the above said solution

Where can I get a conversion software


I also have an XL-6000, and I have the PSW 1.0 software. There is a patch for the 1.0 and 1.1 software for Win 7, as well as instructions. I would recommend that you join a Yahoo group called TeamSewAmused. It's dedicated to the XL-1000, XL-5000 and XL-6000, as well as the PSW 1.0 and 2.0 software, and they have LOADS of instructions in their Files section. Your software WILL run in Windows 7 and Windows 8 and 8.1.

I need my xl-5000 to work with windows 8


I gather than your new laptop doesn't have a CD drive. See if you can borrow a desktop with a CD drive, and copy the files to at least an 8 G thumb drive; from there, you can plug in the thumb drive into your new laptop and install the PSW software from there.. You can also use a smart card with a smart card converter box that plugs into your USB drive (I got mine from eBay for about $7.00), copy the files to the smart card, and then plug in the smart card into your machine, OR you can buy a USB to serial cable, Belkin FSU 409--and a null modem cable.to communicate directly with your machine. There are a number of serial to USB cables available, but it MUST have that specific chip to work with your XL-5000. You will also have to install the driver for that cable, and the install CD will come along with your cable. The easiest place to purchase them is probably eBay.

Conecting to a computer


Several things: You will need to purchase the PSW conversion software to be able to transfer embroidery designs to your sewing machine. Also, you should have received a cable with your XL-6000 that allows it to communicate with your computer. The one that came with my machine has a pin type connector on both ends and it's known as a null serial port connector. I had to purchase another cable because the pin connector would not work with my USB ports on my laptop. I ordered one online and it came with a CD (driver) that you have to load to your computer to make it work. Another thing was that my newer version of Windows (7) would not run the conversion software that came with the sewing machine. There is a feature in Windows 7 that allows you to run software made for previous versions of Windows. Go go Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features>Run software made for previous versions of Windows. Hope this helps.

I bought a Quantum XL6000 last August and I still can't figure out how to go from the computer to the machine or how to even use it. Help. What do I need to buy?


I have this machine, and you just have to hook up the machine to your computer using a serial cable. It should have come with one. If not, or if you don't have a serial (nine pin) port on your computer, you can buy a cable that goes from serial (nine pin on your machine) to usb (flat plug that goes to your machine). If you don't have the machine next to your computer and don't want to move it around (it IS very heavy) then you can buy software like Embird and a SmartMedia card. You have to also have a card reader either in your computer or hooked up to your computer. This can get expensive, but is much more convenient if your machine is in a different room. My computer already had the reader as a drive, since this card was popular in some digital cameras.

I am trying to hook up my singer embroidery machine converter box to my laptop. I think I have to have a specific type of driver on my computer for this, can you help?


Dear Dawn528,

The driver is included with your PSW software and will load automatically when you install the software.

You will need a serial/usb adapter to connect from the machine serial port to your laptop usb port. This will come with a seperate driver that you nee to install.

Good luck

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

Windows vista


Whatever cable that "Worked" B4 will be OK, ALL USB connections are the same, The PC end will be standard, however the non-pc "End" may be different for each device, it is the DRIVER that sets them all apart. In Vista try installing the Origional software in "Compatability Mode for XP" see if this is of any help.
