Hi everyone!
I hope someone on this forum can help me out
I have and older single head Barudan Beat IV embroidery machine which
has an FDR-V Floppy Reader. Does anyone know if I can purchase a cable
and/or hardware that can connect my PC straight to my Barudan machine.
Could you tell me where I could purchase this from and how much it will
cost me. Also instructions on how to connect would be very useful.   I
would like to eliminate the use of floppies in the FDR reader. At
present I am running Windows XP on my PC.
Looking forward to any replies that may help me.

Contact 'Wilcom' in your local area. They provide a hardware/software
solution to connect your old machine.
You'll either need a 'DCi' or a 'Parallel Connect Cable' to connect the
embroidery machine directly to a PC. And compatable software to upload
designs, eg: ES-Designer.

Contact Wilcom:

Machine connection info:

Have my old 'Barudan' 1986 (Honda Connector) model connected with DCi
Serial/Parallel to Wilcom - ES Designer.
Used to upload designs using  a 'paper tape' reader.
