We are trying to use a monogram wizard file wtih the singer quantum XL-6000. We have the image saved in a file but are not sure how to import to embroidery machine. Please help.

You must convert the Monogram Wizard file to a format that your XL 6000 can read. If you have the Singer Sew Ware Conversion Tool, you can do this by opening the conversion software and simply saving the file as an (note: Fixya thinks the "dot triple x" file format is profanity, but it's the main file format used for the XL-6000 so I had to type it out this way) or a .sew format. Once the file is in the correct format, you can then import it to the XL 6000. To import, you must have a special cable (serial port to USB) that has an FTDI chip in it. Only serial port to USB cables with the FTDI chip will work. Here is a link where you can purchase said cable:

After using the cable with FTDI chip to connect your computer to your XL 6000, you must then ensure the com port settings match. I am including below some links that may be helpful to you in figuring all this out. These documents were helpful to me when I was trying to figure out all this stuff for my XL 6000, and I hope they will also be helpful to you. Blessings to you and yours.

I also have additional helpful files, but this site will not allow me to upload a file in .pdf format. If you would like to provide your email address, I would be happy to email the documents to you. One is a workbook for the XL 6000 (much more detailed than the Owner's Manual).

Here are two additional pages that might be helpful: trying-use#solution-section-lzldskb0i2jni14zl4eksues-1-3.jpg trying-use#solution-section-lzldskb0i2jni14zl4eksues-1-6.jpg

I have not used my Husqvarna reader/writer for a while. I put the program on windows 98 because I bought a new Mac, and it says the reader/writer cannot be found. Therefore I cannot get my embroidery on...

You might just need new drivers for the reader/writer. Try the Husqvarna website first, or else do an internet search for "Husqvarna Reader/Writer drivers" or something similar. Is the reader/writer a USB or serial connection? You are going to have problems if it is serial and I am not sure there is a solution, but USB connection should definitely be able to get working.

My Janome customizer 2000 will not write to the scan card. It says that it will not recognize the serial port.

Hi, I have the same problem with mine. Janome have not been very helpful. I didn't know if it was the card or the card reader/writer. I have a Janome CX500. Have you solved any of the problems?

Customiser 2000 will not connect to a laptop as it has a 9 pin serial port (female) and the laptops have a 15 pin (female) I have bought 2 different cables but none work it just says serial port did not...

Are you using a USB-to-serial adapter?

I *think* what the problem might be is that the COM port's not been set in Customizer. Within either of the Easy/Customizer apps, go to ScanCard>Communication Settings ... you'll open up a dialog box within which you can set which COM port your cable's going to use.

If you're compie savvy, you can go to the Windows Start button on Task bar>Control Panel>System>Device Manager>COM ports and SEE which COM port your cable's using.

But until your software knows what COM port your cable's using it will NOT recognize that you have one installed.

Please let me know if this doesn't help! Or if there's anything I can help with!! :)

Need a reader/writer or box converter for a Rose

It's a reader/writer box, however, the boxes (all brands pertaining to embroidery) use specially sized cards specific to embroidery programs. They don't work any differently than any other type of reader/writer or flash card, it's just that the generic brand cards will not fit.

The Box for the Rose (or any other Husqvarna) is hard to find because they don't make them anymore. Also, it requires a serial port instead of the new USB connection. Sometimes you can find them on Ebay. I don't know if anyone makes a serial port device with a USB adapter on the other end, but might be worth looking into.

I would suggest that you purchase one of the newer boxes that will read and convert any designs you may want to download from the net. There are a few . .

The Ultimate Box by Vicant which is also backward compatible to Win 98, which is what your Rose actually reads.

(There is also Magic Box, but I don't know anything about that one.) There's another one, also, but it only comes with a full embroidery program. $$$$

The only drawback is that it will not read any of your Husqvarna embroidery cards because they are code protected.

I have an Ultimate Box Plus with conversion feature and it works fine for me, very easy to use. If you get the box, make sure you get one that comes with the card and that it's an updated version.

Here's a link for information. I actually bought my box somewhere else cheaper, but this site is chocked full of information.

Hope this helps.

New home computer.

Are you talking about the Embroidery Data Reader/Writer R/W 19000 that you can create embroidery designs off of your computer. If so I have one that has not been out of the box and I am willing to sell.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer

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.
