Sew-ware does not come with the sewing machine. You just have the conversion tool. Professional Sew-ware 2.00 converter box is sold optional. Do a google search and you will see what I am talking about. Your sewing machine reads from a smart card that comes with the PSW 2.00 converter box. There is a cable that can connect your machine directly to your computer...Terrie

I have a 64 bit computer and my Singer XL-5000 Conversion tool will not download


I don't think you're going to be able to run it on your computer. However, there IS an alternative. You machine takes Smartmedia cards as an alternative to connecting and transmitting by cable from your computer. They are inexpensive to buy, and so is a card reader that connects to your computer that can read and write to the card. Both Embird and SewWhat-Pro will write a design to your card in the proper format your machine can read. I recommend SWP; I've used it for about 10 years (it's an editing program). It does SO much besides write to your card, including creating fonts from any font on your computer, making appliques and tags from any design, etc. It's inexpensive, and all upgrades are free, PLUS you can try it free for 30 days with all features enabled and terrific support. No, I don't work for the company -- I'm just a huge fan.

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.

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: http://www.cablesalesusa.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=472&products_id=1968

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.

How to configure the Singer Approved USB Adapter with Windows 7

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

Having trouble finding driver for Quantum XL6000.


Your USB to serial port should also come with a driver. Check the packaging. You need to install the driver in order for your computer to pick up the adapter.
