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.

SOURCE: What do I need to format a Smart Card for the

DID YOUR MACHINE COME WITH PSW (IF SO THAT IS GREAT BECAUSE IT IS AN 800.00 PROGRAM) OR DID IT COME WITH SEW WARE CONVERSION? YOU USE THE PSW LIKE EMBIRD, AND YOU CAN USE THE SMART CARD TO SAVE YOUR DESIGN ONTO AND THEN INSERT INTO THE SLOT ON THE XL6000, OR SEND IT TO YOUR MACHINE THROUGH THE SEW WARE CONVERSION AND NULL MODEM CABLE. YOU CAN USE EMBIRD FOR YOUR DESIGNS BUT TO GET IT TO THE XL6000 YOU NEED TO SAVE IT TO THE CARD OR GO TO SEW WARE CONVERSION.

SOURCE: What do I need to connect my singer quantum

You will need a converter box that hooks up to a computer and writes to a card that fits into your sewing machine. Singer PSW 1,0 (box and card), OESD Magic Box (4 slot), and Amazing Designs Amazing box (also 4 slot) will do this. You will also have to make sure these boxes come with a blank card. Amazing Designs and OESD cards MAY be interchangeable. Not sure about the Singer card. In regards to the Singer Card--there are 2 types. Make sure the one you get is for the XL100 or XL1000. XL5000 on up is different. Singer, OESD, or Amazing Designs no longer support Singer XL100 so you will have to go to EBAY. These items are rare but they do pop up a few times a year. ALSO, the software only runs on Windows XP. Don't know if there is a patch, but there is a Yahoo group that deals with Singer XL100/1000. Good Luck

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.

Singer Quantum XL 6000 embroidery unit keeps saying the embroidery hoop is loose or not installed. There is some problem with the electronic contacts and the embroidery hoop. Can't get any help.


Try push in and push out your hoop several times into the carriage, then if the problem is still there, most likely the carriage hoop lock sensor is faulty.

What version of Windows are you using? If it's a newer version (Vista, Windows 7 or 8, etc.) this might help: There is a feature in Windows 7 that allows you to run software made for previous versions of Windows.

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.

We are trying to use a monogram wizard file wtih the singer quantum XL-6000. We have the image saved in a file but are not sure how to import to embroidery machine. Please help.


You must convert the Monogram Wizard file to a format that your XL 6000 can read. If you have the Singer Sew Ware Conversion Tool, you can do this by opening the conversion software and simply saving the file as an (note: Fixya thinks the "dot triple x" file format is profanity, but it's the main file format used for the XL-6000 so I had to type it out this way) or a .sew format. Once the file is in the correct format, you can then import it to the XL 6000. To import, you must have a special cable (serial port to USB) that has an FTDI chip in it. Only serial port to USB cables with the FTDI chip will work. Here is a link where you can purchase said cable: http://www.cablesalesusa.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=472&products_id=1968

After using the cable with FTDI chip to connect your computer to your XL 6000, you must then ensure the com port settings match. I am including below some links that may be helpful to you in figuring all this out. These documents were helpful to me when I was trying to figure out all this stuff for my XL 6000, and I hope they will also be helpful to you. Blessings to you and yours.

How to configure the Singer Approved USB Adapter with Windows 7

I also have additional helpful files, but this site will not allow me to upload a file in .pdf format. If you would like to provide your email address, I would be happy to email the documents to you. One is a workbook for the XL 6000 (much more detailed than the Owner's Manual).
