Question about PfaFF Creative 7570
I use Pfaff PCD software and connect to the Pfaff 7570 sewing machine using the provided dongle which has a 25 pin serial connector. I now have a new laptop with USB port. What adapter must I buy? I have read old posts that say not every brand is successful.
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.

I bought a 25 pin female RS-232 to USB cable from a computer repair store. It works great. You will have to install the software that comes with it so the computer will know that it is a serial port.

I believe I found my adapter at Radio Shack a few years back.

Does anybody have a serial cable for the Pfaff 7570 to a laptop they want to sell me? I'll pay over the original price (I paid $75) for a replacement cable. (I don't need a USB or any adapter, just the cable that connects to the sewing machine.)

The Belkin devices may work but are expensive (US $ 90+). Search on the net for Targus PA090 or PA075U, which may go for $10 or less. I found the following one on eBay:
for $8. I own the two I listed, and assume all of them should work with your laptop, even with Vista. These two work fine for me on both XP and Vista.
