SOURCE: What do I do if my computer still will not recognize the machine and software?

Hi - What version of the File Assistant are you trying to run? The original version did not communicate and a subsequent version fixed this. It could also be a com port setting or a few other things.

If you email me your phone number, I'd be happy to call and try to walk you through some things to get it working. Takes too long to write and too many trouble-shooting steps that change from scenario to scenario to write it all here!

I worked for Pfaff for 10 years doing just these kinds of things and would be more than happy to try to help you out.

Look forward to hearing from you,
Kim

SOURCE: Pfaff 7570 connection to new XP laptop

In this FAQ list (from PFAFF web) you find 100 times the same question and answer:
H402 My new computer does not have any serial COM ports, so how does it communicate with my Pfaff creative 7570?

You will need to obtain a USB Serial Adapter, which adds a serial port to your computer by plugging it into a USB port. Suitable adapters can be obtained from Belkin [http://www.belkin.com] and Keyspan [http://www.keyspan.com].
The following USB Serial Adapters are known to work with the Pfaff creative 7570:
• Belkin F5U103
• Keyspan USA-19QW
Please note that the Belkin F5U109 is listed as working with the Pfaff creative 2140/2144 (FAQ #H405), but it does not work the Pfaff creative 7570.

SOURCE: no communication between pfaff 7570 and computer

It sounds like you have it configured properly if you have the little machine and computer appearing on the display screen. I had this problem too in the beginning, file assistant doesn't use the files for the 7570 its only for some of the newer machines, use Vip customize to send the design to the machine from the file drop down menu. Hope this helps.

My wife Has a 7570 and my computer died taking all with it. It had windows vista loaded on it and PCD_WIN version 2.2 was working if you run as administrator. now the new pc has got windows 7 and have had...


Are you logged in as administrator? I'm not familiar with that particular software but most have the same sort of problems. In windows 7 you may need to 'take ownership' of the disk as administrator. Look at the 'exe" for her software in windows explorer. Right click on it and look at the security tab and see how it is set up. There and under the advance tab you will find settings including ownership, who can use.

Does the floppy work for other things? It may be that the pc isn't seeing the floppy drive properly. Try reading a different floppy and see if it also gives you the "no ID" msg. All discs have an ID so I'm not sure if this message is referring to the drive itself or to the floppy file. Look in CONTROL PANEL and make sure the PC is 'seeing' the floppy drive and showing that it is working properly.

The 3-D embroidery system seems to be only compatible with downloading the designs to a floppy disk. I have a Husqvarna Designer I that has a USB port. Is there any way to download designs to an USB...


USB Designer 1s use Disk Manager, just like their floppy disk sisters, but it needs to be Disk Manager USB. New USB Des1s came with this program on a CD, and this software was also included free when a floppy disk Des1 was converted to USB. If you bought your D1 USB new, check the disks that came with it - one should be Disk Manager USB. If you purchased the machine second hand, contact the seller and ask for the program. It is a free standing program and you don't need a dongle. Check your 3D software - you might already have what you need. Open 3D, click down arrow for Accessories (far right-hand side) - what does your Disk Manager say? If it says Disk Manager USB you are okay to go.

I am not 100% sure of this, but I think that maybe the last update for 3D software (version 7.25) might have included Disk Manager USB. Go to the Husqvarna website and make sure your 3D is updated to the latest version.

If none of the above helps you, there is always the cheap cost embroidery software alternatives: Embird or Sew What. I believe they can write to Designer 1 USB sticks now.

I just bought a used Designer 1 with customizing software. Customizing recognizes my external a: Floppy Drive. When I go to Disk Manager to download to a fresh floppy, Disk Manager doesn't see the...


What worked for me was to not put the disk in the drive until I was ready to write to it. Sometimes this would be enough to make Disk Manager find the disk. If it didn't, I would re-format the disk. Re-formatting seemed to force the software to go look for the disk. This worked for me because I did not store all my designs on floppies. I only used the floppy to load what I was going to be embroidering out at that time. All my designs are stored on the hard drive which is backed up regularly, and are readily accessible for writing to the media I use for my D.1.

My D1 still runs designs from a floppy. I have the 4D software. What computer extension do I need to save my designs to, in order for the sewing machine to be able to stitch them. So far I'm having no luck...


Your Designer 1 will read none of the file formats you listed. It uses .shv which is a special file type created just for the Designer 1. Some embroidery sellers offer this format, but most do not. You don't need the .shv if you have the 4D software. When you purchase designs, you can buy almost any format you want and your software will deal with it. Most Husqvarna Designer owners purchase designs in .vp3 or .pes format. Avoid .art designs.

You need to set up your software using the Configure module. You can access this either by locating your 4D software folder on your hard drive - in that folder there should be an .exe called Configure - or use a link in your normal 4D screen once you open the program. Look for the icon along the top that looks like a screwdriver and pliers (or something like that). In Configure use the Send 1 tab to tell your software that you have a floppy disk Designer 1.

When you want to load designs for your sewing machine, open 4D Disk Manager (it will be in the drop-down Accessories box using the arrow beside the Configure button). You need to have the correctly formatted floppy disk in your computer's floppy disk drive. If you don't have one, you can format a blank one from within the Disk Manager module. Most importantly if you are using a floppy that already has been used in your Designer 1, you need to use the Read Disk icon along the top. The designs already on your floppy are read into the program. You can then add whatever designs you want by using the Open (icon showing an open manilla folder) or View (looks like a blue camera) buttons. Then you choose the Write Disk button to put not only your newly added designs on the floppy disk, but to also put back the ones that were already on it. Click "Yes" when asked if you want to erase designs already on the disk. It is quite safe provided you read the disk into Disk Manager first, as described above.

PC Designer disk not working


Your PC's floppy disk is not readable by the disk drive, probably because you don't use the drive as much, and it has gathered a layer of dust and dirt inside. It's necessary for you to clean the floppy drive using a special disk with a special cleaner liquid. However, with floppy drives going the way of the dinosaurs, it may be difficult to find such item nowadays.
Try getting one of those small compressed air canisters to clean your keyboard and try blowing the dirt off the mechanism of your drive.
If that fails, it's possible your floppy disk has gone bad. Data on these disks have only a certain life span measured in years.
If that also fails, then write to PFAFF and ask for a replacement disk of the same version of the software, sending them proof of purchase, etc, so that they will comply without any questioning.
Good luck!

I have somewhere that installation diskette (with the old SW version). If I'm not mistaken it was not included with the sewing machine but sold separately with the embrodery arm that we bought together with it some 10 years ago. Email me to azach@kci-medical.com if you need more help.
