Error when trying to write to programmable card

It's been awhile since I have embroidered. Tonight I got out my programmable card, put it in my reader/writer and added one design to load on the card. When I went to write the designs back to the card, it told me that I had an error...can not write to the card. Can this programmable card be defective if it would let me READ, but not WRITE? It's been about two years since I had the card in the reader/writer and it was stored in the sewing machine all that while.

Re: error when trying to write to programmable card

It could be that the card can no longer be written. Sometimes they may just stop working.
If you have a dealer in the area, request that they try to write to your card and you will know if the problem is in your hardware or settings if they are able to.

Chances are your 7570 is so outdated that you won't be able to attach it to your computer even with the adapter unless you are able to and are willing to put an older operating system on the computer and make it a dual boot machine.

The sewing world isn't like the PC world... unfortunately. You'll need to purchase digitizing software at about $500 to $1500 depending on the brand to digitize your jpeg, size it etc.

I have a designer 1. recently when i go to embroider, it starts fine then just goes hay wire and put teh embroider all over the place- not like the pattern. Sound to me like the emb. unit? thanks kathy

Hi Kathy, I'm sorry your Designer 1 is not feeling well.8*( It sounds like to me you need to get your embroidery unit re-calibrated by your local technician. When was the last time you had your machine serviced? Are the designs you are trying to embroider stock designs or your own designs? Have you tried resetting your machine by turning it off and back on again and let the machine calibrate again? (Take the hoop off before you do this and put it back on after you have selected your design) and try it again. Also how old is your machine? They had a recall on Des 1 purchased between 1999-2004 for a power supply problem. The serial # and recall info is on the Viking website at- Also do you have enough clearance around your machine where the hoop is not hitting anything while it's embroidering that will throw it of big time! Hope something here helps you! If I can help you further you can also email me at- Happy Sewing!! Kathy ( from 1 Kathy to another)

I am trying to embroider something for the first time on my viking #1 husqvarna. Do I need presser foot Q/ or R/ .If it's R,I can't find it-what does it look like? I need someone to walk me thru the steps...

embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Select design
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!
