Common error with d1 usb machines. You should only use Husqvarna Viking usb memory sticks. That being said, I have found a few that will work, i.e. Ativa 2gb and Office Depot 2gb. Try holding the stick firmly in place to make sure you have good contact. Wait 1 full minute after the machine is started before trying to access the usb stick. If these things do not work, it could be the usb port or the pc board. These parts have a 5 year warranty to the original purchaser. Contact your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or to have machine sent to Husqvarna Viking (VSM) Technical Service Division for repair. List of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck!!

Intermittent floppy disk drive for Husqvarna Viking Designer 1


These 3.5-inch floppy disk drives are never produced by the manufacturer of the device, but by one of a few floppy disk drive manufacturers (usually Sony) and as such, should your disk drive start to fail, you may be able to disassemble the case of the Viking Designer 1, remove the floppy drive, and insert another standard floppy salvaged from a tower-type PC, thus fixing the problem.
Since 3.5-in. floppy drives are becoming more and more scarce in modern computers (in favor of CD-RW drives) you may have a obsolete tower computer (remember Windows 98?) in your basement (or your friend's basement/yard sale/flea market/www.Craigslist.org/www.eBay.com) that could supply a useable FDD (floppy disk drive).

The 3-D embroidery system seems to be only compatible with downloading the designs to a floppy disk. I have a Husqvarna Designer I that has a USB port. Is there any way to download designs to an USB...


USB Designer 1s use Disk Manager, just like their floppy disk sisters, but it needs to be Disk Manager USB. New USB Des1s came with this program on a CD, and this software was also included free when a floppy disk Des1 was converted to USB. If you bought your D1 USB new, check the disks that came with it - one should be Disk Manager USB. If you purchased the machine second hand, contact the seller and ask for the program. It is a free standing program and you don't need a dongle. Check your 3D software - you might already have what you need. Open 3D, click down arrow for Accessories (far right-hand side) - what does your Disk Manager say? If it says Disk Manager USB you are okay to go.

I am not 100% sure of this, but I think that maybe the last update for 3D software (version 7.25) might have included Disk Manager USB. Go to the Husqvarna website and make sure your 3D is updated to the latest version.

If none of the above helps you, there is always the cheap cost embroidery software alternatives: Embird or Sew What. I believe they can write to Designer 1 USB sticks now.

Embroidery disk 100 (all 4) machine says there is a disk error and cannot start. need book of 100 full size patterns to go with disks


I doubt you will be able to locate a copy of the book of designs, but maybe if you joined one of the Yahoo Designer 1 groups you may be able to contact someone willing to part with theirs. (Membership of these groups is free.) However, having the book will not solve your problem with the design disks. It sounds like there is a problem with your D1's internal disk drive. There is no quick fix for this unfortunately and you will need to visit a machine technician for a diagnosis and repair. If you know anyone else with a D1, test the disks in their machine. You could also take the disks in when you go to the technician and ask him to check them in his computer or on another D1 before he works on your machine, just in case it is the disks that have gone bad - although it seems unlikely that all four would become unusable at once.

Designer I software compatibility


You need the Husqvarna Viking software to turn those file extensions into the SHV format. It's about $400 at your dealer. Their web site does a nice job of showing its features. You get over 100 fonts and alot of designs too. You would open your current designs on a screen and then re-write them to the floppy or stick depending on your model of D1. It then sends the stitch information with the picture of the design to the floppy so your D1 can display the image. (The SHV format)
The VIP and HUS format don't carry the image file for your machine so it say's, "file not found", when you try to open them in your D1.

How can I upgrade my Designer I from floppy to USB?


Hi, I am just about to buy a designer 1 second hand......I gather that you can have it changed to USB by your dealer,for a couple of hundred pounds however I have also been told to be aware that this will not increase the speed that it reads, apparently they just change the hardware to take a usb stick, the reading software in the machine remains the same.
The advantage is that you can download to USB as most computers don't have a floppy drive any more but if you try and put too many designs on your USB the machine apparently will take forever to find them.
Hope this is useful.

Viking D1 error message file not found


You need to use either Organizer or Disk Manager to put designs on the floppy disk. Both of these are Husqvarna programs, not part of your computers operating system. If you copy shv file directly, the machine does not have all of the information that it needs to read the files. If the folder containing your original shv files that you purchased contains additional files, you just need to copy EVERY file within that folder to the floppy disk and it might work. Don't attempt to move individual files to the floppy. You will need them all.

Husqvarna Embroidery card reader/writer


Hi - I think you have a Viking Designer 1, which has a slot for a floppy disk on the side of the machine. If so, you need to purchase embroidery software that supports file type .sv1, and you will need to buy floppy disks.

You can buy embroidery software from Viking that will allow you to write design files onto floppy disks, but you can find other embroidery software packages that support the D1 which cost quite a bit less - make sure that file type .sv1 is supported before you buy.

Viking does sell designs that come on a D1 floppy disk. You can just pop the floppy into the machine, select you design, and go. You can find Viking designs online from time to time, but before you buy, ask if a floppy is included - the newer Viking design packages come with a DVD but might not include the floppy for the D1.

Hope this helps, Ginny

If you have a Viking #1+, you won't be able to use floppy disks with your machine. Please repost and I'll tell you what to look for.

General disk error reading when i insert a disk


Look at the floppy disk using Windows Explorer. You should see something to the effect of menu1, menu2, menu3 menu4 and one or two files with a file extension of something like .mhv or .phv . Inside the menu folders, you will find the .shv files.

Just writing the .vip or .hus to the floppy will not work.

Keep me posted and I'll try to come up with something more.

The Designer 1 needs the design in an shv format in order to read it. The floppy disk for an older machine may be created using several different programs but the Husqvarna Viking module is known as Disk Manager. It is included with many of the HV software packages. With a newer USB Designer 1, the program is Disk Manager USB.

Embroidery stick


You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.

When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.

Enjoy your fantastic machine
