SOURCE: Machine won't recoginze disc from program function

As I understand it, the Load button loads designs that you have prepared earlier and saved within the Designer 1, not disks made and saved in your Husqvarna software. These are the .DHV files (this might not be quite the correct file format name - can't remember!) you might see when you look at a disk in your software.

When in Program mode, you need to use the Menu button to go right back to the first D1 opening screen, then choose the Disk icon, navigate through all that to find your design, choose it and it appears on your Program screen. The second time you hit Menu from inside the program screen, you get taken directly to where you were the first time so it is quicker. But first time, it is a long slow process.

SOURCE: unable to load 3d embroidery on hp windows 7

3D was intended to be used on XP and also worked for some time on Vista with the proper manipulation of updates. I don't believe that it will work at all on Windows 7.

4D does work on both Vista and Windows 7. It does need the latest update for Windows 7.

SOURCE: Bernina 180 with Firmware 2.08 - can it run DesignerPlus 5 or 6?

You will need to update the software in the machine, to a min of version 3.08 this can be done at BERNINA dealer (usually free of charge) once this is complete you designer will fully be compatible. WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR MACHINE IN TO BE UPDATE DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE EMBROIDERY UNIT IN AS WELL AS IT CONTAINS ITS OWN SOFTWARE

Actually 3D will run on Win.7 but since you don't have that either, it's neither here nor there for you. You can partition your hard drive and install Windows XP on the partition, then install your older Customising software on the partition. You need to boot up to the partition every time you want to use it though.

SOURCE: can you upgrade Bernina artisa designer plus

The Bernina site has the official downloads of software updates and upgrades which are available. The site needs your specific ino, which I don't have, so I am directing you to their site.

I did find several warnings regarding using other downloaded software for Bernina machines.

Good Luck!

Can a Bernina Virtuosa 153 still download stitches into its CPS system with Windows 10?


The Virtuoso was pre-Windows 10, so a Windows 10 system will probably have some issues. You might want to contact Bernina. They can tell you if your machine can be upgraded to Win10.

My Bernina Artista 180E no longer works with updated Windows. Is it possible to upgrade so that I can still use my 180E and not have to buy another machine?


Just use the free download software from Bernina called Artlink. I used it along with a USB to Serial converter cable to connect to the machine. Works wonderfully. Allows me to still use my old Artista designer software if I want to on an older machine and then when I want to actually transfer the designs I use the laptop with the USB cable.

I can't install Bernina Version 4 on my VISTA Operating system PC


As far as I know, Bernina version doesn't work on Windows Vista, you have to upgrade to the next Bernina Designer version which is Vista compatible.

Please check the Bernina website software upgrades for a solution. I use XP Home and have no problem but there was a software upgrade download for my Artlink version and also for the security key for the Bernina Designer 4.0 to install to make it work.

I need to convert my parellel port dongle to USB


I have the same problem...V3 software. have not heard of an adapter. The software wouldn't work with Windows XP or Vista anyway. I upgraded to Editor plus V5 but have kept my old Designer plus on an ancient laptop so I can transfer old patterns. You will also find that your new laptop doesn't have a serial port to accomodate the old cable to bernina 180. Unfortunately it's always the case with updating a PC. Everything else has to follow! My advice, get hold of an old laptop:)

Husqvarna designer 1 floppy drive to usb


First you need the USB upgrade kit that has the connectors and parts to change the cover of the machine.
Next, you will need a new main circuit board if your machine was made prior to about 2006.
At this point, the cost of parts is about $489. If you can get someone to install these for $10, you can get this done for under $500.
Otherwise, go to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer and check into trading your Designer 1 in for a Designer SE. You will then be able to plug in an external 3.5 floppy drive to read your old disks, a USB stick, or plug directly into your computer and read them from the hard drive (an upgraded Designer 1 can read ONLY from the stick). Used Designer SE's are very reasonably priced since the introduction of the Designer Diamond as the new top of the line and you may be able to get a full manufacturers warranty on the gently used machine.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

greetings Carla
