My futura CE-200 was working fine and then all of sudden it won't recognize the usb cord is attached and the machine is on. I have updated drivers and reinstalled the software. No help. What's wrong?

    I have tried replacing the usb cable.

    Explain "try another port"

    I only have one computer.

    When I go to Device Manager, under Network adapters there are the yellow warning signs with exclamation marks.

    It's telling me that it can't install the driver because it is "unsigned"

  • sjwagner Feb 09, 2010

    Okay, I installed the software on another computer and it didn't work there either. So that means it's the software or the machine, right?

test the futura with another computer and see if it will recognize it. If it recognizes it on another computer, then maybe you should use a different port on your computer.

But if it does not recognize another computer, then the fault should be from the usb cable and maybe that's why its not recognized by the computer.

Therefore, you will have to change the USB cable of the Futura.

Take care.

    "another port" means another usb space on the computer. Or does your computer has just one usb port space.

    The exclamation mark, means that driver of the device with exclamation is not installed. So maybe you should re-install the drivers for your futura if you have any.

    Take care.

    try to test the futura on another computer and install the drivers on it.

    If the other computer accepts/installs the driver, then your computer is the one that is refusing to install the futura and maybe you should juts leave it for a while and try again later.

    But if the other computer still does not install the driver, then it will be clear that the driver might be corrupt or the problem is from the futura.

    Just try this and let me know what happens next.

    Will be expecting your response, hoping it would be positive.

    Best regards.

    right, its the machine/software.

    Is there any machine repair shop that will cost less in your vicinity? Because I think that's the next option since you have changed the cable and its still not working fine.

    Or what do you think?

    Best regards.

Make sure you're plugging the USB cable from the machine intoa USB port in the BACK of your computer, not one of the front ports or a porton a USB hub. The cable and machine need more power than most of those portsprovide, a technical detail that Singer doesn't realize. Good luck!

I am running vista and I click on futura symbol and get a message connection error. Both the usb cable is connected and machine turned on.

I believe that you will need to update your software in order for it to work properly with Vista. The drivers for machine communication were probably for XP. They are available online. Look in you help section of the software for procedures for updating.

Can find details about this upgrade in the Singer Link.

After you have downloaded the update patch, plug in the USB cable, turn on your machine and the drivers will finish installing.

Hope helps (remember rated this help).

My quantum futura CE-200 won't work on my new laptop which has windows 7..Anyway to correct this problem...

If you are using Futura 2.0.0.x software there is no update yet, but Windows 7 support has been already included into update for Futura 2.5.0.x. You may ask a closest Singer supplier about it.

My Singer Futura CE-250 keeps giving me an error

"PC" symbols on the machine panel if it is not connected to PC and switched on is a normal behaviour.
As for communication failure try to remember whether something on your pc has been changed: windows upgrade, machine got connected to another usb port etc. If any of such changes have been made try to reinstall Futura software. Otherwise launch troubleshooting utility and send its report to futura-support.

Singer CE0100 Futura connection error....

Hi I had the same problem sent question to Singer and this was their reply

"Do you have Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bits? Unfortunately the CE-100/200 machine will not be compatible with either Vista 64-bit systems or the newest Windows 7 computers. The CE-100/200 will only be compatible with Windows 98 through Vista 32-bit operating systems.

This appears to be a hardware issue and not something that we will be able to create a patch to correct. Drivers necessary for 64-bit operating systems are not compatible with the CE-100/200 machines." so I guess we are SOL
