Hi all!
I got a Christmas present - a Husqvarna Rose sewing machine. An upgrade from my way too simple Brother machine - and even tho' the Rose is a used one, i absolutely love it from the first stitch!
Only one thing ruins my happiness - it came with the embroidery reader/writer system on 3 floppy disks from which the first two could get transferred to a usb stick to work on my laptop, but the third disk doesn't work.
So i'm only able to install 85% of the system - lacking those couple files that are on the third disk.
Does anyone have the Version 1.31 on all 3 disks and could share the missing files?

Its free shipping and you can make an offer.
I also would contact the viking dealer to see if they have a cd version .

I live in Europe and this one wouldn't even talk to anyone outside US...
I've lived for a while in US and in different European countries and i'm really not getting it - where's the difference - one has to go to post office anyway - why it's impossible to write an international address instead of interstate on the envelope?

I have no idea. I sent you an email. Just hang in there we could get something.

Ask the seller how much more money they need to send the parcel to you.

Sending outside the US generates no compensation for the country outside the US, so they would be delivering free of charge, which they will not do and vice versa.

I'm still running an old Viking System 5 photo stitch program in a win XP computer. It came on CD, and is dongleless, but not sure that makes any difference or not. But some things to try. Copy the old installation floppies, into a folder in your own computer's main hard drive, the C drive there most likely, and try to install from within more your own computer, like that, instead. Try directing it to C: to pull the install from instead of drive A:, which you probably don't have. Or any other higher lettered drives that your USB stick might become. Old installation things once on floppy's, always do seem to install better for me, done from within a computer, and just installing from the main internal hard drive , more than on some other drive like a USB stick or even a big additonal external hard drive sometimes. So try the C: drive technique.

Also try, once you have all 3 floppies copied to your main hard disk, you can run scan disk on those copies if you want, and it might even really correct an errant file.

Also go to the Viking website, and look up the support pages there, for that old system, and all that old software, as they still have lots of patches and fixes, that maybe if you added one into the mix, it might suddenly help. Just pages and pages of system documentation and issues to look though there, and might take you all day to dig through all of it, but if you want it to work bad enough, maybe it's worth it. I'm pretty sure you could get the old embroidery digitizing programs to work eventually, by availing yourself of that kind of thing, but getting the actual external card device to work with them and your machine, just depending on what you got, maybe not so much, but you could try. Good Luck!

Or give up and pay maybe $200 or so for some other kind of external device that would write to a proprietary card for it. For me it would become a matter of what was worth more, my time or my money probably.

I would think anything made for windows 95 won't work on later windows versions even if you have all the disks. What windows are you running?

I would think you could use Embird a third party software also. About $150 now.

Some will, some won't. I have several programs written for W 95 that run on Windows Vista, rather to my surprise.

Hello,
I am also a Rose owner. I have recently pulled my digitizer out of the box after many silent years and I also have a problem with my disk 3. Were you ever able to get a new disk 3? I have an old computer with Windows 95 up and running to run my digitizing software, but no disk 3!
Do you know how I could get the contents of disk 3? Viking probably won't send me a new copy at this point. they aren't the best with their customer service.
thank you!
