There are a couple of options, the easiest is to use a usb connected floppy.. They are quite common now. Just pug it in, if you have a usb port.
Also you can add an internal drive. Little bit more complicated.. Do you know how to use a screwdriver and take care not to damage electronic componants with static electricity? If you understand that, then you can probably proceed. I think it's best to supply me with the details of your pc, before we proceed.. What brand/type is it? A tower or desktop? You will need to open the case and maybe remove a fixed panel to mount the drive. Anyway, please advise on the type of case & brand of PC, so I can help you further. Rgds,

What other embroidery cards can I buy for my envision 9008?


You can download designs from the Internet and send them to the embroidery machine.

If this machine uses memory cards, you will need a reader/writer unit and a rewritable memory card in the format of the machine.

If the machine uses floppy discs, you need a PC that has a disc drive for floppies or you will need an external drive.

Check the Internet for vendors or check with the shop where you purchased the machine for the method of transfer needed.

CD drive refuses to open or run even when I press the button


Select a cd rom device,then add another boot up disc,then see if it opens.Will it take a cd rom better than a floppy? If so use the boot up disc,rather than an older and possibley more damaging floppy.

I have an old e machine Tower Mod.667IR S/N QA309-108-O2995 no manual on hand. Please advise correct drawer ID. Top drawer C or D ? Mid drawer C or D ? Which drawer is the Burn drawer? Bottom...


Your master hard drive will be C, slave hard drive or top media drive will be D, and so on unless you have reconfigured them from the factory setup. Floppy disks only have 1.44 megabytes on them, so easiest way to copy data from them is just to drag and drop all the files into a folder on your desktop. Insert a blank CD-R into your writeable drive...win 2000 will open a blank cd window. drag and drop the files you wish to copy into the blank cd window and click "burn these files to disc". A CD-R has 700 megabytes on it, so roughly 675 floppy discs can be copied to a single CD-R.

Disc error on Husqvarna viking sewing machine floppy


sounds like a bad disk or the floppy drive is going out. The floppy drive is very expensive to replace. It may be that a local dealer has a used floppy drive which they will install at 1/2 price. If you determine that the floppy drive is at fault, take it to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for repair. This is not something that can be done by the owner. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you. If you are the original owner and you purchased it less than 5 years ago, the drive may be under warranty and you would only pay for the labor.

Copying files from Floppy Drive to External HDD.

01. Ensure that both Floppy drive and External HDD are configured properly in the machine.

02. Sometimes if virus affected the files of floppy drive, will not copy the full files.

03. Close the small led in the floppy top right side and check once again.

04. In start program, type coimmand and the dos prompt with Drive will appear.

05. keyin Dir A: and see it reads all files.

06. There also it gives error, you cannot copy these files to External HDD.

07. Try to use some other floppier which is already formatted.

08. Ohrr solution is just copy all these files from the floppy drive on to C: and copy the same files after creating a folder in C Drive.

09. Check the Interlink cable is also working fine.

10. If the problem not solved, please call authorized system service engineer to sort out the issue..

Icon not appearing on drives list


Did you use the Safely Remove Hardware icon to disconnect your floppy drive? Did you subsequently connect the drive to a different USB port? If both answers are YES, then simply reconnect the drive to the same port and it should work.
If that fails, reboot your machine and try again. USB ports are finicky if you don't follow proper protocol.
Good luck!
