Have you tried asking your Husqvarna dealer to help you out? They very likely would have the software available. Another place to try might be an online group specializing in Husqvarna embroidery machines e.g. Yahoo Groups. One of the members there might be able to assist you with a spare copy of the software disk.
I can understand how frustrating these sorts of things can be. I've owned Husqvarna embroidery machines and software for about 15 years now and have experienced a few problems. However, be assured that other brands are not without their share of problems too. Husqvarna did make using their products somewhat awkward in those early years of embroidery machines, wanting to protect their property from being pirated and having to use the reader/writer and associated software was one of the prices to be paid. Technology has since moved on and these kinds of problems rarely occur these days. That's no comfort to you in your present predicament, I know, but your machine is a quality machine and worth getting it set up so it works for you the way it should. Good luck in sourcing a disk.

I have not used my Husqvarna reader/writer for a while. I put the program on windows 98 because I bought a new Mac, and it says the reader/writer cannot be found. Therefore I cannot get my embroidery on...


You might just need new drivers for the reader/writer. Try the Husqvarna website first, or else do an internet search for "Husqvarna Reader/Writer drivers" or something similar. Is the reader/writer a USB or serial connection? You are going to have problems if it is serial and I am not sure there is a solution, but USB connection should definitely be able to get working.

Program installed on Laptop Vista and will not find Reader/Writer


Uninstall it. Then Re-install it in "Compatability Mode for XP SP2" Also run it in "Administrator Mode". That is your only shot at making it go. It is NOT designed for Vista.

Can't get the reader writer's Icon to come up


You have to have the Husqvarna Viking Software installed on your computer for it to work. The first version of the software is called 4D embroidery and sells for around $400. You can see features of it on their web site.

Can't load software w/o the lost Software Licensing code


I too have the 3D Studio, which I purchased from an estate sale. Fortunately, I had the serial number, however I don't have the rest of the registration info to change registration for the program updates. It will not let me install any updates. However, it works just fine without them.

I've heard others with the same problem, and there is no way to bypass their protection codes. Their program also comes with a "dongle", which is a product licensing key, that plugs into your USB port. The program will not run without it. Another item that they will not replace if lost.

I had thought about purchasing another program, but really only needed the new generic reader-writer to plug in to my computer. (It must be an embroidery reader/writer.)

Husqvarna will, however, be happy to sell you another program at great expense.

Alternatively, I would suggest purchasing a more inexpensive program --Embird for expample, and the Ultimate Box (reader/writer) and Card , which will be much cheaper than what the Husky people will sell you. Also, there is no "key" to plug in to operate their program.

Hopefully, the seller can find the registration for it somewhere, because without it, it's pretty useless as far as I know. Husqvarna is very good at protecting their products.

Here is a site with lots of info on both the above items. I bought my reader/writer Ultimate Box Plus and card cheaper from All Brands, though.

Hope all this helps.

Reader/Writer box


You might need an update for your reader writer box. The one you have might be old and that is why it does not recognizes it. Just go to the manufacturer's site and download an update for your reader/writer box.
