I have a Singer Futura XL-550 Sewing machine that I haven't used in years. My Windows 10 PC does not have a CD Drive. Is there a digital download for the computer software anywhere??

    what is it, this XL-550
    google shows vast things made with the model, I can not see it nor guess what it is or what it does or makers name;.
    scale, or sewing machine or welder.

    It must be a toy that is USB connected or something that has CD
    a talking digital bathroom scale?

    if yes have friend with real PC and read the CD and copy it to uSB thumbdrive.
    then using that load the software.

    or is a Singer sewing machine
    ok I give up , and is not failing PC
    and no PC told at all nor OS you run
    so I do give up.
    learn to google
    learn to google makers name + model + support.
    and find your own software from the maker.

    SInger (wild guess this) is it?

    buy $15 cd/dvd external USB drive cheap or or any where that sells them.
    not be helpless?
    some things like this have COA license keys to run the software, so the CD may be super important if true.

I can't believe that a Windows PC does not have an optical drive! You can download the software.

    VAST Loptops had no CD/DVD drive.
    it was an option on all old laptops.
    just like wifi was, an option. too. then.
    and now GONE.
    on all.
    w10 will run on a 2008 PC with no DVD.
    no PC told by OP so no savvy answers
    the full model number of the PC will contain, the code for DVD (ODD)
    or if dell PC, the service tag tells you all things opted in or out of the PC day one new.
    or has brand new Laptop and thin laptops
    are too thin to have any CD drive.
    cracker thin I call them. HP X360

    there are 3 cures
    get the software from the maker online
    or copy the CD to USB thumb drive
    using a real PC. with CD drive.
    or buy the $15 USB ODD drive. best IMO.
    always have one for days like this. $15 bucks.

You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Have you tried setting the jumpers on the new drive to CS (cable select) If you use that setting, the position of the drive on the cable determines whether it is master or slave. For example, the plug at theend of the IDE cable is the master and the plug in the middle of the cable would be slave. Just a suggestion. If you are using SATA, this does not apply.

The easy solution is to buy a small "card reader" that you stick your card in and then insert in a USB port to read it. You can check the site for drivers in their support section if you still want to use a cable.

I need to obtain Installation software for the Futura xl-550 Singer machine. Where can I get that as a downloadable file?

Unfortunately, the installation software isn't available online. You may be able to find an installation CD on E-bay or a similar site. Alternatively, you can buy the software from a Singer dealer; that will be the full software package and not just the machine communication and file conversion program.

You can find the available updates here: . The original CD may need to in an optical drive (either in the computer or a USB drive) to install the update.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Xl400 futura software won't work on windows xp

I owned an XL-400, and now own an XL-550 and Quintet, which all run on the same software. Could you be more specific about the problem you're having?

I have a feeling that you received the basic Futura software, as well as a second CD with the add-on software like AutoPunch, and THAT software refuses to install, giving you a message that the basic Futura software hasn't been installed. It has, but XP has not yet installed the drivers into Windows. What you need to do is after installing the basic Software, you need to plug the machine into the computer and turn it on. You will get a message, "Installing new Hardware." Bring up the Futura program once and then close it, and NOW you will be able to install the add-on software.
