Kenmore 19000 Scan Driver

I have a Kenmore R/W 19000 scan reader and can't see the drive on my windows XP. I am using a USB Serial cable and USB to Serial driver on my computer. The computer is not recognizing the scanner. I have downloaded a XP driver for a USB to Serial port, and still have no luck.

Did you install the driver for your scanner?

Hi Sheila,

Click on start, click on My computer, then look in the left hand menu for View system information and click on it, click on Hardware, click on Device Manager, your VSM reader should show under Universial serial bus controllers, normally at the bottom of the page. If there is a yellow ? mark next to it, it means the driver has not been installed successfully. If so, double click on VSM reader, click on driver, make sure your software CD is in your cd drive and click on Update driver. Should solve your problem.

Trying to connect a USB to the serial port of a Bernina Sewing Machine (Bernina 170). Has been working for a couple of years and has stopped all of a sudden. Does not work on and XP PC, Vista or win 7....

The Dynex adapter does not have any numbers on it. It was the one that is only about a foot in length and has a square center piece that houses the conversion electronics. Standard 9 pin RS-232 male plug on one end and the standard USB plug on the other end. I purchased it within the last month at BestBuy here in Austin TX.

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?

Looking for an internet site that offers a patch for Kenmore (Janome)R/W 19000 embroidery software for Windows XP. The orig software is only compatible with Windows 95 and MS Word. Thanks so much.

I was informed there was no patch. The software was formated for windows 95 and will only work with that software. you can pick up a computer for less than 100 with that old windows system-- that is what I did.

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!! :)

Can I use my Scan n Sew PC on XP. If so is it

What version of Customizer are you using?

To answer your question without knowing *all* of the specifics, yes, you can use your S&S PC on computers running XP. You will need, however, a serial-to-USB adapter. You can pick one up at Best Buy for about $30 or you can take your chances at eBay for about $15 (with shipping). I, myself, bought mine at eBay and got a great deal.

Once you've hooked up (and installed the software for) the adapter and your S&S PC, you need to tell Customizer which COM port to use. To do this, open Customizer (either EasyEdit or EasyImport) and click the "ScanCard" menu item. Choose "Communication Settings" in the drop-down menu and then choose "COM4" in the "Channel" drop-down menu. You may need to play with the "Baud rate" to get the best results.

From there, Customizer will be able to speak to your Scan N Sew and vice versa!! :)

If there's anything I can clarify, please let me know!! :)

call the people who made your computer (hp, dell) and ask for a down grade to XP and that will solve most all your problems that you will have with vista. vista has built in things that you will not be able to run alot of your programs on.
