    Ok now...please be kind...

    I'm looking at Husqvarna Sewing/Embroidery machines and some of them mentions "dongles"...

    The only brands of machines I've ever owned is Janome and Singer...

    The question is..."What is a dongle" and what is it used for...

    The dongle is a writer that attaches to your computer and transfers designs from the computer to a card that then is inserted into the embroidery machine so you can sew out a downloaded design. I hope that makes some sense.

      thats why i got the new singer futura hooks up to the laptop so you can see the design in its screen not a lil lcd screen...
      These things, I warmly wish for you-
      Someone to love, some work to do,
      A bit'o sun, a bit'o cheer.
      And a guardian angel always near.

        I'm sure Claire has the proper terminology for it, but for those of us who don't know the lingo: basically, it's a connecter to make two electronic devices talk to each other.

              Is it like a memory stick/thumb drive/usb drive? I think I saw one in an ad for a Husqvara Viking embroidery machine.

                  I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. The dongle is a license verification device that becomes active after the product is registered. It is used by Husqvarna to license the embroidery software. It is a security device.

                  A software protection dongle is a small piece of hardware that plugs into an electrical connector on a computer and serves as an electronic "key" for a piece of software; the program will run only when the dongle is plugged in. The term "dongle" was originally used to refer only to software-protection dongles; however, currently "dongle" is often used to refer to any small piece of hardware that plugs into a computer. This article is limited in scope to dongles used for the purpose of copy protection or authentication of software to be used on that system.[1]

                  it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                          Don't you mean a "Chummy-jigger"? lol Seriously though, a "dongle" usually refers to a usb key/thumb drive (whatever you want to call it) that often comes with some type of pre-loaded software. In my experience anyway And you can be sure it was named by a man, because a woman would never come up with something that sounds so perverted lol
