Hi, normally you use ~FAT16 on your PC to format it...

if you're using http://www.singerco.com/sewing-resources/conversion-software then it must be formatted using FAT, now on the PC , windows Explorer, (yellow folder) , select the drive , right button click , select format


Please remember to insert the card carefully, I have replaced a number of card readers for this machine...

Regards
Rob

Can you format the card with your computer and then try it in the machine? Is the flash card exactly the same type that you have previously used with your machine? Sometimes, not all cards are compatible.

If nothing else, delete the files using the machine routine, and then see if it will format.

Good luck,

I need my xl-5000 to work with windows 8


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.

I downloaded some design off of the internet on to my computer and then onto my pc card. Computer says they are on the card but when I put in machine the designs are not there.


There are several possible answers. On the pc card, you must have a folder called EmbF5. The sewing machine will put two directories onto you pc card when it formats it--Ord#5 and EmbF5. The embroidery designs are stored in EmbF5 and series of sewing stiches that you want to save are stored on Ord#5.

I have had the same problem. I have two pc cards which I formatted on the computer and placed the two file folders EmbF5 and Ord#5 on the disks myself. I cannot get the machine to read these. I suspect that the machine wants to format them itself; however, the literature on the subject suggests that you can format the cards on your computer. (You must use the FAT option.) Also, I cannot get the machine to reformat them, so maybe they are defective.

If you get a new disk, put it into your machine. It will format it for you and place those two folders on it. If it does not format it, go to the set option on the menu, go to the third 'page' and you will find the format ATA card.

Also, be sure that your card is 512 MB or smaller.

Smart media card and embroidery machine


Your machine needs to go into the shop.

Select a Singer dealer and have your purchase information in case this is something that is covered by your warranty.

What do I need to format a Smart Card for the Quantum XL 6000? My machine came with PSW but it isn't there. Does Embird work for this?


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.

WHAT TYPE OF MEMORY CARD DOE I NEED AND HOW CAN I GET ONE?


Check the manual for the embroidery format.

art, exp, sew, and pcs are a few examples of some of the formats.

However, you need the exact format.

You can check allbrands.com for a reader/writer unit with rewritable memory card, but it must be in the correct format for the brand and model of your machine.

With this software, you first create a folder on the PC Hard Drive.

Then download designs from the Internet in the format for your machine and save them to the folder.

You then need to unzip/open the downloads as the software will not recognize the zip format.

You then call up the designs you want to stitch out and send them to the card. The software with the reader/writer will explain this in more detail.

If you find designs that are not the same format as you need, you can convert them to the correct format by using Pulse Ambassador - this is a free down load that you can find on the Internet.

You open the design you want to convert and then save in the format you need.

Having problem downloading patterns from disc to memory card have spent hours trying


Judy, you mention memory card so I am assuming you are refering to a Compact Flash card that you insert into a PCMCIA adaptor.
The card must be smaller than 512 MB, any larger and the machine won't acknowledge it. You need a type 1 card and compact flash card adaptor, a compact card reader/writer unless you have an integral multi card reader integrated into your computer. The card format must be FAT, the older computer file format. Insert the card into the adaptor and insert into your machine, wait for the warning screen to clear, if the machine asks "format card" hit yes on the machines display screen . If there is no offer to format the card use the SET icon on the display screen, you need embroidery mode, then arrow forward till you reach the Format options, select ATA card, hit yes, it will warn you card contents will be erased, hit OK. Just say yes to any new questions. Wait for the warning screen to dissapear, when it does you can eject the card adaptor, now insert the card alone into your digital media card reader which should be inserted via a USB connection to your computer, locate the drive your computer has allocated to the card and open it. You will see two types of folders, ORD which are for combined decorative stitches you might want to save, those you put together in the machine, and EMB folders, those are where the machine expects to find designs,11 of each.
Only use them to transfer designs between the machine and computer or vice versa, don't use them to store all your designs in, you will over tax your machines on board processor.
To pop designs into them, open your design CD, select the design you want to stitch, copy it, now open the card in your computer, open the first folder, number 5, I think, and Paste into that folder. Use only JEF formats, your machine wont read any other format.
Don't transfer designs into the machines built in folders, you will severely constrict the machines memory to the point where it wont be able to access enough memory to stitch your designs. Use the compact card as an external drive, which it is anyway, the machine will still stitch the design as if it were in its own memory. To access the card in the machine, select embroidery mode, then the card icon and finally if needed the file icon.
Hope this helps you
