I have a Viking 1+ and a parallel Reader/writer. I need to upgrade to a Husqvarna/Viking USB Reader/Writer. I have VIP Customizing Plus. I have been looking on Ebay but am not sure which USB reader writer will be compatible with my software and Viking 1+. Can any advise me. Also if anyone had a USB reader writer they would like to sell let me know

RE: Husqvarna/Viking USB reader/writer

I, too, have just received a Viking 1+ with a parallel Reader/Writer. Since my computer has no parallel ports, I am in the same boat as txgigi. I thought that it would be easy to find a USB/parallel port adapter, but the 25-pin adapters found at Radio Shack are shaped differently from the Husqvarna cable. Are there other adaptors out there, or do I need to also purchase a USB Reader/Writer? Oh, by the way, I've got the Customizing Pro System 5 software. Any advice?

RE: Husqvarna/Viking USB reader/writer husband is great!
