Error when trying to write to programmable card

It's been awhile since I have embroidered. Tonight I got out my programmable card, put it in my reader/writer and added one design to load on the card. When I went to write the designs back to the card, it told me that I had an error...can not write to the card. Can this programmable card be defective if it would let me READ, but not WRITE? It's been about two years since I had the card in the reader/writer and it was stored in the sewing machine all that while.

It could be that the card can no longer be written. Sometimes they may just stop working.
If you have a dealer in the area, request that they try to write to your card and you will know if the problem is in your hardware or settings if they are able to.

    Okay so if you find that your card is okay, what can you check as far as the computer goes?

Hello, I am hoping you can help me with this. I have recently installed 3D Professional (ver.7.2.51.1) running with Vista. Everything runs, with no apparent issues at this time. I had to get a parallel...


I dont believe the parallel reader writer will work with Vista. You need to purchase a Husqvarna USB reader writer and problem will be solved.
Good Luck

I have a Husqvarna 1+, how can I connect my laptop to it to download embroidery designs?


Sorry,... there is not a connection to allow you to do that. However there is a Reader/Writer unit that you can plug into a USB port on your computer and write a design to the card that comes with the reader/writer and then put the card in the machine to embroidery a downloaded design.

I have a reader-writer box for a Viking Rose machine that is missing the dongle. Is there any place I could get just the dongle?


The dongle is only available with the software when you buy it. The dongle alone doesn't run the reader/writer box. The dongle is the code key for the software that allows you to send designs to the reader/writer. So purchasing new software (which also gets you the new dongle) is what you'll need to do if you want to send designs to the programmable card. Another issue you may have is that the older reader /writer box that uses a parallel port hook up, doesn't work with the new software. So if you have an old reader /writer, you'll also need a new usb reader / writer box. The new reader / writer also comes with a new programmable card.

D card reader writer


Did you purchase the 4D reader writer kit? If so, once you've loaded the driver for the reader/writer box, you go to the "organizer", select a design and "send" to your box. If you purcased new, the directions are pretty straight forward; otherwise, you may want to contact your locat Viking dealer for assistance.

Husqvarna 1+ programmable card


To the second poster with the malfunctioning "card" - do you mean the insert panel/card (overlay) with "E" on it? If so then there is no programmable feature to it. The overlay has notches in the left edge that presses a pattern of leaf switches on the left behind the case and it uses internal designs in memory. If on the other hand you mean that little memory card that you can use with the reader/writer and goes with the "0" (zero) card/overlay then you can get them from a Husq-Viking dealer, or keep an eye on used ones on ebay.

Most dealers sell the "programmable" as a "0" (zero) card set where you get the zero cassette/panel/overlay and the little programmable embroidery card as a set. Most reader-writer sets, either the older parallel port type or the newer 3D/4D USB one will come with one many times. You need to check the dealers and see what they have to offer. The programmable embroidery card is still rather pricey. I'm looking into whether there is some generic type memory card that might work too but have yet to find one and may not since the HV programmable card is likely proprietary since it goes back to the early 90's.
