Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

3 Answers

Help Hello. I have recently purchased a futura ce200. When i take a design of my own and try to use it it goes through the step by step process on the computer screen then starts stitching out the design on the computer, and then the whole program just shuts down. I have used a design that i knew already worked as i had used it before and it still shuts the whole program down. If this is any help when you re open the programme futura says CD-Cops v1.11 #4904 and asks me to connect to the internet however where the machine is i do not have internet Can you help please? Thanks Amanda

@ molly molly

I think you problem is a different one. When you used your own design, I assume it was an embroidery file not digitized or made with the Futura software. In this case keep in mind that the Futura machine can only accept a limited number of stitches (about 5000) when the design is transferred from the computer to the machine. Try dividing the design into several blocks with no more than about 5000 stitches and send them to the machine sequentially.

I hope this helps!

    Hi keenkitten...your vote indicates that your issue has not been resolved, and I would still like to work with you until your issue is resolved but more communication is needed.

    Because I don't have any specifics on what/why you haven't achieved a resolution, I will share what I have interpreted from your original post. 1) You have a CE200 embroidery machine. 2) Combinations of your Machine and patterns have a history of success. However, currently, this history is now corrupt. 3) Coinciding with the development of this flaw, you also began receiving a message of "CD-Cops v1.11 #4904", and instructs you to connect to the internet. 4) The CE200 is not able to connect to the internet due to it's physical location. Please correct me by updating your post if I have any errors or misuderstandings.

    Now I will share what I have assumed out of neccessity in order to form my original post. 1) You have access to a computer with internet access. 2) On a computer, you have installed the Singer Digitizing Software that is included with the CE200. 3) You have read your Owners Manual, and perhaps practiced digitizing your own designs on the computer, and during this learn/play process, became knowledgeble in the mechanics of transferring the information from a computer, to your CE200. And to accomplish my original post, you would first open your Singer Software, Select WebHelp, and once your default browser was automatically opened, you would click on the URL that I provided. If any of these assumptions are incorrect, please correct me by updating your post with specifics, and I will do all that I am able, so that you regain your productivity and enjoyment of your Machine.

    Hi keenkitten....Could you please update your post with more details, and try to be as specific as possible. I'm having difficulty understanding exactly what you mean by "not installed". Did you click the appropriate file to physically install it into your Root Directory on your Computer? I do understand that you are able to access and use the software, however, unless properly installed into your Root Directory, we will be unable to update your Embroidery/Sewing Machine.

It probably needs to update with the Singers program, it might have a deleted memory file or something so you really need to find somewhere you can possibly get online. Sorry

My futura ce200 is driving me insane because i have the small hoop selected on the computer but the machine thinks that the large hoop is selected. How do i fix it??

Before attaching small hoop, turn on power switch to
move the carriage to embroidering standby position, and
turn off power switch.

check troubleshooting in manual

hope this helps and you get it working soon =)

Singer CE0100 Futura connection error....

Hi I had the same problem sent question to Singer and this was their reply

"Do you have Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bits? Unfortunately the CE-100/200 machine will not be compatible with either Vista 64-bit systems or the newest Windows 7 computers. The CE-100/200 will only be compatible with Windows 98 through Vista 32-bit operating systems.

This appears to be a hardware issue and not something that we will be able to create a patch to correct. Drivers necessary for 64-bit operating systems are not compatible with the CE-100/200 machines." so I guess we are SOL

Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size

Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!

Singer Futura CE200 Software

If you use the standard FUTURA software. you will have to buy an add-on for the Software.

Singer offers an add-on called Hyperfont which allows to digitize any true type font on the computer.

The software is available in stores and online, but be sure to get the right version for your software. There are versions for the Futura CE150, CE 250 etc, and there are other versions for the CE100 and CE200, so be careful.

You should also keep in mind that although you can digitize any true type font with this software, not every font is suitable for embroidering and will stitch out nicely.

Sincerely yours,

Vista unable to install Futura software

check for your disk size!
try to check also for the software properties labeled on the CD especially its memory and disk allocation requirements!
it may also need you to connect the machine to the computer first before installing its software!
