To the second poster with the malfunctioning "card" - do you mean the insert panel/card (overlay) with "E" on it? If so then there is no programmable feature to it. The overlay has notches in the left edge that presses a pattern of leaf switches on the left behind the case and it uses internal designs in memory. If on the other hand you mean that little memory card that you can use with the reader/writer and goes with the "0" (zero) card/overlay then you can get them from a Husq-Viking dealer, or keep an eye on used ones on ebay.

Most dealers sell the "programmable" as a "0" (zero) card set where you get the zero cassette/panel/overlay and the little programmable embroidery card as a set. Most reader-writer sets, either the older parallel port type or the newer 3D/4D USB one will come with one many times. You need to check the dealers and see what they have to offer. The programmable embroidery card is still rather pricey. I'm looking into whether there is some generic type memory card that might work too but have yet to find one and may not since the HV programmable card is likely proprietary since it goes back to the early 90's.

You can buy this card through your local dealer.  Most likely they will have to order it directly from Husqvarna - cost is not cheap (I think more than $100).  It does not come with the overlay card which has to be purchased separately.

I dont believe the parallel reader writer will work with Vista. You need to purchase a Husqvarna USB reader writer and problem will be solved.

Your reader writer will not work unless you have the Husqvarna Viking software to drive it. The first level of the software is called 4D Embroidery. Their web site does a great job at showing the features and benefits. It sells for $400 and if you buy it from your local dealer, they usually offer classes. It is not difficult software to figure out.

I have a reader-writer box for a Viking Rose machine that is missing the dongle. Is there any place I could get just the dongle?


The dongle is only available with the software when you buy it. The dongle alone doesn't run the reader/writer box. The dongle is the code key for the software that allows you to send designs to the reader/writer. So purchasing new software (which also gets you the new dongle) is what you'll need to do if you want to send designs to the programmable card. Another issue you may have is that the older reader /writer box that uses a parallel port hook up, doesn't work with the new software. So if you have an old reader /writer, you'll also need a new usb reader / writer box. The new reader / writer also comes with a new programmable card.

#1 Viking Embroidery #13 Set.


Use any card that has the On/Off in the bottom right og the card (1). You have to know what number is you design so you can push that number after selecting on/off. Make sure you programmed emb card is in the machine. You can use another card if you do not have the generic numbered card with on/off and the hoop positioning E on the right side of the numbers 1 to 35 designs.

Error when trying to write to programmable card


It could be that the card can no longer be written. Sometimes they may just stop working.
If you have a dealer in the area, request that they try to write to your card and you will know if the problem is in your hardware or settings if they are able to.
