    I tried the website and could find nothing for the Sew Ware Conversion Software. They had several things for PSW, but nothing for what I need.

GO TO USA CABLES AND ORDER #CUSB-232A WHICH IS A 3' USB TO SERIAL ADAPTER INSTALL IT ON YOUR LAPTOP AND IT WILL WORK WITH VISTA, THIS IS THE CABLE THAT SINGER RECOMMENDS TO USE, THEN AFTER IT IS INSTALLED PLUG IT INTO THE NULL MODEM CABLE AND IT SHOULD READ THE SEW WARE CONVERSION. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL OTHERS AND THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I CAN GET TO WORK WITH VISTA.

    OH BY THE WAY I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT SINGER HAS INFORMED ME THAT THERE IS NO PATCH AND NO UPDATES FOR THE XL6000. SO WHY THEY PROMOTE AN UPGRADEABLE MACHINE IS BEYOND ME.

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.

Connecting to the computer


You should have received a cable with your XL-6000 that allows it to communicate with your computer. The one that came with my machine has a pin type connector on both ends and it's known as a null serial port connector. I had to purchase another cable because the pin connector would not work with my USB ports on my laptop. I ordered one online and it came with a CD (driver) that you have to load to your computer to make it work. Another thing was that my newer version of Windows (7) would not run the conversion software that came with the sewing machine. There is a feature in Windows 7 that allows you to run software made for previous versions of Windows. Go go Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features>Run software made for previous versions of Windows. Hope this helps.

I cannot seem to down load my software onto my computer tried it on vista tried it on windows 7 i am peeved


Have you downloaded the patches for your software to upgrade to Vista? I would suggest that you visit the Singer support page on their website and read through the patches information.

http://www.futura-support.com/downloads/patch.htm

Your software is probably built for XP operating system so you would need to patch it for the newer Vista - there is not yet a patch for Windows 7.

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

What do I need to format a Smart Card for the Quantum XL 6000? My machine came with PSW but it isn't there. Does Embird work for this?


DID YOUR MACHINE COME WITH PSW (IF SO THAT IS GREAT BECAUSE IT IS AN 800.00 PROGRAM) OR DID IT COME WITH SEW WARE CONVERSION? YOU USE THE PSW LIKE EMBIRD, AND YOU CAN USE THE SMART CARD TO SAVE YOUR DESIGN ONTO AND THEN INSERT INTO THE SLOT ON THE XL6000, OR SEND IT TO YOUR MACHINE THROUGH THE SEW WARE CONVERSION AND NULL MODEM CABLE. YOU CAN USE EMBIRD FOR YOUR DESIGNS BUT TO GET IT TO THE XL6000 YOU NEED TO SAVE IT TO THE CARD OR GO TO SEW WARE CONVERSION.

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.

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
