Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

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 the card.

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.

I just bought a rose myself and am very new to all of this, but I don't think the Emerald is an embroidery machine?? The reader/writer would be for embroidery unless I'm completely mistaken...

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.

Need a reader/writer or box converter for a Rose


It's a reader/writer box, however, the boxes (all brands pertaining to embroidery) use specially sized cards specific to embroidery programs. They don't work any differently than any other type of reader/writer or flash card, it's just that the generic brand cards will not fit.

The Box for the Rose (or any other Husqvarna) is hard to find because they don't make them anymore. Also, it requires a serial port instead of the new USB connection. Sometimes you can find them on Ebay. I don't know if anyone makes a serial port device with a USB adapter on the other end, but might be worth looking into.

I would suggest that you purchase one of the newer boxes that will read and convert any designs you may want to download from the net. There are a few . .

The Ultimate Box by Vicant which is also backward compatible to Win 98, which is what your Rose actually reads.

(There is also Magic Box, but I don't know anything about that one.) There's another one, also, but it only comes with a full embroidery program. $$$$

The only drawback is that it will not read any of your Husqvarna embroidery cards because they are code protected.

I have an Ultimate Box Plus with conversion feature and it works fine for me, very easy to use. If you get the box, make sure you get one that comes with the card and that it's an updated version.

Here's a link for information. I actually bought my box somewhere else cheaper, but this site is chocked full of information.

Hope this helps.

Viking Rose can't install System 5 software


You may be able to find an old computer with Windows 95 or 98. Make sure that it also has a parallel port for the older R/W boxes.

You may also find that the 4D Embroidery package will do what you wish to do and it is under $400. 4D Embroidery Extra is the $700 package.

If you only want to put existing designs onto the card with no manipulation, you can get the Reader/Writer kit, $199 MSRP that includes Organizer which will allow you to load 1 design to your card at a time.

Unfortunately, System 5 was replaced by VIP which was replaced by 3D which was replaced by 4D. I don't think that system 5 will run on anything newer than Windows 98.

I was told to download a driver for the husqvarn reader/writer bo


I bought a Rose when they first came out. (1998) I LOVE THE MACHINE.

From 1998 until 2002 I used it all the time and made good money doing embroidery. I went to work outside of my home & didn't do much with it until 2007. When i tried to install the software on my newer computer I discovered that the software that came with the machine won't work with any operating system except Windows 98. I now have XP.

I dashed off to the sewing machine store to see if they have the newer software. I was thrilled to be holding the box with the new software until I looked at the price. (it's now 2007) $850.00. Yes, EIGHT HUNDRED. I believe they told me that the reader/writer box had to be replaced too.

I sure wish I had known that before I gave away my computer that had Windows 98 !!

I cannot afford that kind of money so now I have a very, very nice sewing machine that used to embroider.

Good luck.

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.
