Question about Bernina Artista 180
Hello, I bought some designs from a couple of digitizers a couple of weeks ago and when I try to open them in my bernina version 5.0 software I get this error message-The file format does not match the expected format for this extension. Native designs may have been created in a more recent version & updating your system may allos the design to open. For other design files, the source software may be creating non-standard formats. Check with source file. --These are digitzers I have used several times and they have not changed anything. Any help with this would be appreciated. Lavannia

Sorry to inform you but your machine only sews 4" x 4" . The arm on the machine can only move 4 inches up and down and 4 inches left and right.
The size of the hoop does not affect this. If you have a multi position hoop you can sew multi 4 x 4 areas without re hooping.

Not sure if you found anything out, but Deco 600 uses PES format only.
If you have the software (Deco Wizard) sometimes you can change it to PES and save the design.

The tension is not properly set for embroidery, try to rethread totally new. Sometimes it is also caused by broken thread inside the machine, you can open it with the supplied L-shaped tool on the left side of the machine where the lamp is located and than take it out with a tweezer.

The Bernina site has the official downloads of software updates and upgrades which are available. The site needs your specific ino, which I don't have, so I am directing you to their site.
I did find several warnings regarding using other downloaded software for Bernina machines.
