I have a logo created in other software... is there a format I can save it as the viking software will read? If I can "import" it into viking software to make it a .hus file it will save me a lot of time. Or do I have to re-create it in the viking software to begin with?!?!

The Premier Embroidery System software is compatible with all sewing machine brands.
Once an embroidery design whether created or downloaded can be saved in various embroidery formats. You can save the design as .jef and use it in your Janome embroidery sewing machine. If the same design is saved in other formats, it can be used in other sewing machine brands.
The Premier Embroidery Software is amazing.
Please let me know if this is helpful.
I assume that you have a computer and have the Janome software on some type of media (flash drive for example.) The Viking uses a different format that the Janome. Janome uses either .sew or .jef You can download the free program "My Editor" Open the Janome design in My Editor then ask the program to save it in the format your Viking uses--.hus or .vip uses. (Choose saveas, click on the drop down box and find the format your machine uses.) You can download My Editor from this site http://www.drawstitch.com/index.php/Downloads/my_editor/
You will have to maintain an XP computer or buy new software there is no fix for your problem.It's the electronic age the old software was written for the XP operating system.When MS changed the operating system Husqvarna Viking had to design new software it's that simple.Don't blame the manufacturer Microsoft made the changes that created the problem. www.sewvac.com
On the hard drive of your PC create a folder and name it Emb Downloads or something similar that you will be able to find.
Select the download and save to the folder. These design files will most likely be zipped. A zipped file cannot be read. Open or extract all files.
If the download is not in the format you need, you can convert to the format needed by using Pulse Ambassador (this is a free software download). Download, then open the design you want to convert and then select save as and select the required format.
To get the designs to the embroidery machine, you need a reader/writer unit and rewritable memory card in the format for this machine.
You can find this software at Allbrands.com for a price less that what dealers usually charge.
You need the Husqvarna Viking software to turn those file extensions into the SHV format. It's about $400 at your dealer. Their web site does a nice job of showing its features. You get over 100 fonts and alot of designs too. You would open your current designs on a screen and then re-write them to the floppy or stick depending on your model of D1. It then sends the stitch information with the picture of the design to the floppy so your D1 can display the image. (The SHV format)
The VIP and HUS format don't carry the image file for your machine so it say's, "file not found", when you try to open them in your D1.
The Designer 1 needs the design in an shv format in order to read it. The floppy disk for an older machine may be created using several different programs but the Husqvarna Viking module is known as Disk Manager. It is included with many of the HV software packages. With a newer USB Designer 1, the program is Disk Manager USB.
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.
You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.
When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.
