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.

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.

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.

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. Go go Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features>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. 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.
