Had to upgrade computers last week. Now I have lots of computer but no good way to use Palette that was purchased with my machine. I tried a USB com port but no luck. So, what do I need to purchase to be able to download to cards. I have design software, just need a way to get that design onto the card!

Hi Nancy, depending on which Palette you have, you can find a "patch" that will run Windows 7 (which should also run on Windows 8). If your Palette is the "transfer system" which means it is only a card transfer reader and not the full digitizing software, you want to look for the Palette PTS with Windows 7 listed. Click on that and follow the instructions.

If it is a full digitizing program, look for your appropriate version and download that one.

Here is the page where you need to look: http://www.babylock.com/downloads/

Oh and if your system is old enough to not include a usb connection for your card reader box, it is too old to update and you will need to buy a newer version. Sorry if that is the case..I don't know if there is a way to find a connector converter thing..but there might be.

Yes, I tried a com to USB adapter, but of course the adapter only works on 7 not 8, so that was a few bucks wasted! I found an adapter (USB to Com) that says it works with Windows 8, but that doesn't mean the palette box will work even then. I guess I am looking for a new box. I haven't found one that says it works with 8 yet, does anyone know of one?

Did you try contacting babylock to see if there is an update for Windows 8?

Hi Nan, Did you ever discover a solution? I am having the same problem and I tried to update from the babylock site with no such luck. I am praying I am not going to have to purchase new software since mine is so outdated.
