My VIP customizing reader writer box suddenly


Does your reader require a dongle/hard key? If so is it fitted correctly into the machine?

If that isn't the case perhaps an email to Viking/Husky is in order.

I have a reader-writer box for a Viking Rose machine that is missing the dongle. Is there any place I could get just the dongle?


The dongle is only available with the software when you buy it. The dongle alone doesn't run the reader/writer box. The dongle is the code key for the software that allows you to send designs to the reader/writer. So purchasing new software (which also gets you the new dongle) is what you'll need to do if you want to send designs to the programmable card. Another issue you may have is that the older reader /writer box that uses a parallel port hook up, doesn't work with the new software. So if you have an old reader /writer, you'll also need a new usb reader / writer box. The new reader / writer also comes with a new programmable card.

Need a reader/writer or box converter for a Rose


It's a reader/writer box, however, the boxes (all brands pertaining to embroidery) use specially sized cards specific to embroidery programs. They don't work any differently than any other type of reader/writer or flash card, it's just that the generic brand cards will not fit.

The Box for the Rose (or any other Husqvarna) is hard to find because they don't make them anymore. Also, it requires a serial port instead of the new USB connection. Sometimes you can find them on Ebay. I don't know if anyone makes a serial port device with a USB adapter on the other end, but might be worth looking into.

I would suggest that you purchase one of the newer boxes that will read and convert any designs you may want to download from the net. There are a few . .

The Ultimate Box by Vicant which is also backward compatible to Win 98, which is what your Rose actually reads.

(There is also Magic Box, but I don't know anything about that one.) There's another one, also, but it only comes with a full embroidery program. $$$$

The only drawback is that it will not read any of your Husqvarna embroidery cards because they are code protected.

I have an Ultimate Box Plus with conversion feature and it works fine for me, very easy to use. If you get the box, make sure you get one that comes with the card and that it's an updated version.

Here's a link for information. I actually bought my box somewhere else cheaper, but this site is chocked full of information.

D card reader writer


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.

Reader/Writer box


You might need an update for your reader writer box. The one you have might be old and that is why it does not recognizes it. Just go to the manufacturer's site and download an update for your reader/writer box.
