Re: connect to computer

Make sure you have the USB plugged into the back USB ports on a desktop computer and try each of the different ports on a laptop computer. What Singer doesn't tell you (and probably isn't aware of) is that the back ports provide more voltage than the front ones (and is also true of certain ports on your laptop). The USB cable and your computerized sewing machine require more voltage than the other ports allowed.
Make sure you're plugging the USB cable from the machine intoa USB port in the BACK of your computer, not one of the front ports or a porton a USB hub. The cable and machine need more power than most of those portsprovide, a technical detail that Singer doesn't realize. If you're using a laptop, keep trying different USB ports until you find one that works. Good luck!
I got my Jenome MC10001 5 years ago. It was the top of the line combo. Within 5 years Jenome retired it, I also found that the manufacturer was not keeping the connections to the PC current. As well the machine drivers will only connect to a 32 bit PC. Bottom line. Sewing machine manufacturers want to produce computerized machine$ but are not interested in designing their machines to accomodate future technology through firmware upgrades or replacable connection ports. Your machine will likely be obsolete not because of dealer support but because of changing external technology. Also support is not as good as from computer software companies. If you get a embrodery machine, you need software and expensive threads.
but is the carriage moving,? if not disconnect and try to connect again, the embroidery hoop holder usually moves to check itself, if it still does the same thing the connection that goes onto the machine is not making a proper connection, I also had this problem, with a 2100 brother , I fixed it by using a crochet hook and just tightening the connection that connects to the machine on the embroidery unit, but tread very carefully it just takes a slight move. if this fails it will have to be adjusted cost is usually $100au
Are you asking how to connect the Brother PE-400D sewing machine? You have "how to connect the '4000D' to a computer and what risk if any". Which machine are you asking about - these are two different sewing machines. If you are inquiring about the Brother PE 400-D, then your answer is... this machine is NOT capable of being connected to a computer. However, if you wish to purchase or download embroidery designs from the internet, you may look into purchasing the Brother PE Basic. This allows you to download embroidery designs from the internet to your computer hard drive and then load them on to a Brother memory card. The Brother memory card can then be slipped into the proper slot for the memory card on the sewing machine. You will need to purchase embroider designs that are in the PES format for you Brother machine to read it. Hope this helps!
