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!!
