Transferring DVD designs to USB stick for my Husqvarna Designer 1


First you need your 4D software installed on your computer (or which ever version you are using). Insert the DVD into your drive. Then open your embroidery program and then click File and Open. When the new window opens, search for your DVD drive then find the embroidery you want and click Open. The embroidery yoiu chose should open in your embroidery program with the hoop displayed on the screen. Then save the embroidery under a new name in your embroidery design folder on your computer. Then insert your USB into your computer, Open Disk Manager and Read your USB. Then click on one of the empty squares and then click File then Open. In the new window find the embroidery file you saved under a new name on your computer and choose it. It should show up in the empty square you clicked on. Then Write to your USB. Now you are ready to move your USB to your machine and the embroidery should be there. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I just bought a used Designer 1 ESS machine and I do not know how to use the dongle


You don't need a dongle for the sewing machine. You either have a dongle for the computer embroidery software in which case it goes in your computer when you've installed the software, or you have a USB stick that has the Husqvarna designs on it.

What colour is it? The USB sticks are blue, the 3D software dongles are red. Only problem is, I think the 4D software dongles are blue too!! My Husqvarna Designer 1 USB embroidery stick (blue) has "USB Embroidery Stick" written on it - have a look for that. The dongle will have Hasp or something like that written on it.

If you are pretty sure it is a USB stick, put it in your machine and turn it on. Then touch the disk/stick icon on the lower right hand side of the screen. Your machine should start to read the stick and you will get a pop-up menu where you can choose from the folders on the stick. If you don't, go into the PROG screen. Touch MENU, touch the disk/stick icon and see if the embroidery files on the stick come up then. Each machine came with a set of designs called Embroidery Disk 100 and three alphabets - Palace Script, Kaligraphia and Clarendon. These should all be on the USB stick.

In the event that it is a dongle you have, but not the software, you need to contact the person from whom you purchased the machine.

You can download the Husqvarna designs from the Husqvarna website, but you will need a Husqvarna formatted USB stick to do this. Therefore, you do need software on your computer. There are some low-cost alternatives to the Husqvarna software - Embird and Sew What come to mind. However, a Husqvarna program called 3D Disk Manager USB came with every USB Designer 1 machine, so you should have got that when you purchased the machine. This will be enough for you to load designs from the HV website and from other websites where you purchase designs.

How do I get a copy of Designer 1 Disk manager?


Designs can be converted for the Designer 1 (floppy disk or usb stick) one design at a time using Organizer. For a full copy of Disk Manager, you should get 4D Embroidery and it will be included.
Disk Manager is a copyrighted product and a "copy" can not be legally obtained.

I have a #1 machine


If you purchase a reader/writer unit with a rewritable memory card in the format for your machine, you will not need additional cards.

Copy the designs from the CDs to the hard drive or insert the CD as you need to access a certain design and then copy the selected designs to the memory card.

The card can only store a certain number of designs and then you reload when you want a different design.

You can get this unit from a sewing machine dealer, but they are less expensive on-line.

Always check with the vendor before purchasing to be sure the unit will work with your brand/model and machine embroidery format.

Husqvarna Embroidery card reader/writer


Hi - I think you have a Viking Designer 1, which has a slot for a floppy disk on the side of the machine. If so, you need to purchase embroidery software that supports file type .sv1, and you will need to buy floppy disks.

You can buy embroidery software from Viking that will allow you to write design files onto floppy disks, but you can find other embroidery software packages that support the D1 which cost quite a bit less - make sure that file type .sv1 is supported before you buy.

Viking does sell designs that come on a D1 floppy disk. You can just pop the floppy into the machine, select you design, and go. You can find Viking designs online from time to time, but before you buy, ask if a floppy is included - the newer Viking design packages come with a DVD but might not include the floppy for the D1.

Hope this helps, Ginny

If you have a Viking #1+, you won't be able to use floppy disks with your machine. Please repost and I'll tell you what to look for.

Downloading designs from the internet


Disk Manager is part of Customizing software, in case you were wondering if you needed to buy more software. Ask again if you are having trouble locating it. You also need to format your floppy disk in Disk Manager before writing your designs to it.

My designer 1 keeps saying "No floppy Disk Inserted" and of course there is.


Do you have this problem with only one floppy, or have you tried several? Make sure the floppy is pressed into the slot fully. It should sort of "click" in.

Is the floppy properly formatted for the Designer1? You cannot just drop embroidery files onto it and put it in the machine - the designs need to be in .shv format and in a certain file hierarchy. Only genuine Husqvarna embroidery disks, or ones created in Husqvarna or Embird software can be used.

Of course it may be a sign that your Des1's floppy drive is not working, in which case you will have to take the machine in to be fixed.

Post more detail on your problem and I will try to offer more specific advice.
