I have a question and hope you ladies can help me.

I have an Deco 600 Embroidery Machine. I had it loaded on my PC which ran Windows XP. It crashed last weekend so now my wife and I both have laptops that run Windows Vista. The Deco 600 ver 3 is not compatable with Vista. I ordered a connection to run from USB to Serial port so that I could hook up to my card reader but it's not reading it.

The embroidery machine runs great but not much use if I can't use it. Any suggestions or am I looking at getting a new Embroidery Machine?

Thanks

Your problem isn't with the machine, it's the software of your reader/writer box correct? From what I saw the 600 does not have an actual way to hook up the the computer directly but you use the design cards? You could try contacting the maker of your reader/writer box and see if they did a patch. That machine is an old one though so much has changed with machine embroidery in the last 10 years or so since it was introduced so you might think about updating it as now all the machines either hook up to the machine directly or use USB drives and the boxes that were made to use designs other then on the expensive cards will cease to be made if you can even still get them and the support for them (software) will stop (upgrades for windows upgrades).

Bernina may have a download for drivers that are compatible with an OS newer than XP.

Or, see if you can find a used PC with XP and use it for ME only.
