Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

Open Question

SOFTWARE INSTALLATION PROBLEM I have an Bernina Artista 180 and have been using V4 software. All of a sudden Portfolio did not want to open the patterns or display them. I then uninstalled the Bernina software thinking that something might have gone wrong. Now that I want to re-install the software the CD opens up to the option to INSTALL SOFTWARE. When I click on this button nothing happens and the computer seems to be working like made. When removing the CD and shutting down the computer, it is asking for the CD in the specific drive in which I had the software disk. I then have problems closing the computer down and have to reinsert the CD. What could the problem be, please. I am using Microsoft Windows XP Home with SP2. Thanks Elize Colton email address: ecolton@telkomsa.net

Hi there

embroiding machines like this one nowadays have limited troubleshooting and issues that is fixed. however, the only way for you to really know the exact cause why you are having random errors with your machine is to bring it to a service center and have them diagnose this for you before they could make a probable solution to the problem.

Again, it does frustrates whenever you are in a middle of a project and suddenly the machine goes haywire.

Glad to read that you are taking good care of your machine. i quick way to determine though aswhat youve said, is the sound. you will know that theres an error with the sound it makes. Practically thinking boils down to a faulty cogwheel somewhere inside the machine.

So, my only suggestion is for you to have your embroidering machine serviced in a service center for the technician to actually have a look at your machine.

thanks for reading and hope this helps.

Bit out of my league can I suggest you talk to a computer expert.
My limited knowledge tells me while trying to update, your previous software package has been corrupted.

Hi, Unfortunately any of Bernina's software that is older than Version 5 , will not work with Vista. There are some software patches available on the berninausa.com web site, but there is nothing out there that will help you if you have any Version 4 software or older. Microsoft really through out a curve ball to everyone with VISTA as there is a lot of software out there that will not work in that operating system.
Actually the lowest cost solution would be to get a nice used computer that runs Windows XP. You do not need a super fast, state of the art computer to run embroidery programs.
I bought a nice used computer at a yard sale for $10.00 and it even came with the XP install disk. I replaced the hard drive just because they do wear out after a few years, installed XP in it and that computer is now in my wife's sewing room and it is only used for her embroidery work.
You might have a computer repair shop in your area where you can buy an older XP computer that has been reconditioned. The few dollars you would spend to get an older computer would cost you far less than buying new Bernina Version 5 software. It is EXPENSIVE! Good luck...bushvideo

SOURCE: CD-RW drive won't open

stick a straight paperclip into the tiny hole in front a few times. This manually rotates the gears and will eject the cd tray.
If it does not still come out because of the jammed CD - you may need to use force!!

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

I assume you need a dongle driver for V5 Embroidery Software ... is that right ? If so, let me have your e-mail address and I'll send you a copy, with the installation instructions.

Have you tried the Bernina website, they have various software downloads there for the embroidery software. Under Suppport, Downloads and Manuals.

Is this what you needed?

Have 4.0 software. When trying to load pattern to 180 Bernina I get the message no link to serial port.


Which version of Windows do you use? There is an additional software to download from the Bernina website for Windows XP which solves that problem.

Version 4 of bernina artista will not load on my new computer


I have a solution. (sorry for my bad english) Last week is the notebook of my wife broke down (mainboard was ten years old). So we bought a new one. So I tried install artista V4, no chance (bernina said, you can update to V5). Next step, I install a XP-Pro on the new notebook (no chance too, because I can't find all drivers, they don't develop new drivers for XP).

Now my solution:
I installed a virtual machine (vmware player) with XP-Professional (which I have). At this XP-Machine I installed the artista V4 - it runs!

You can find a lot of help for installing a virtual machine in the www.

If you want, I'll describe the install-process for my vmware.

I hope I could help!

Regards
David

Dongle


Hello. No, the only way you are going to get this to work is to replace the software with new ones, as all software come with different dongle numbers. The dongle numbers are specifically for the software that you have, you can't even change dongles. Can you get in touch with the seller to give you the dongle? I have a set of Cracked software for the BERNINA ARTISTA 180 that I can copy for you for $200, which you don't need a dongle for. Email me on: lfr6@bigpond.com I have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 as well and this is the software I run. RRP for the VERSION 3 and the CPS software is $4500.00. Thanks. Lawrence
