Re: need help with transferring designs to machine
Put the cd into your computer drive and open it. Put your usb stick into one of the ports and open it as well. You must have the emb folder on the usb stick to put the designs into. If they are not there already- turn off your sewing machine and put the stick in. Turn on the machine and go to settings, then embroidery. Find the one that says Format. and touch that one and then let it do it's thing.
Once you have the folders on the usb stick- you can highlight the design name you want from the list (cd file) and drag it to the folder on the usb stick. Alternatively... right click on the design you want to move. Select copy. Open the folder on the usb stick and right click inside it. Select Paste. The design should appear in the folder for the usb and then you can take it out of your computer... put it into the machine and find the design.

.Jef and .Dst will work on a Janome machine. You can buy designs per the hoop sizes for your machine. Buy, download, and transfer received file to a USB drive to transfer deign to machine.

I am trying to help a friend who got Vista 32 bit OS and cannot use her transfer cable. She is on dial up so I thought I'd locate the driver and take it to her. I am having no luck finding it. She has her original machine CD but I did not find the driver there. She has no other software for embroidery. What's next?
Since you are able to view them from the ATA (Compact Flash) card on your computer and the designs are in *.jef format you should be able open them on your machine. Make sure you have selected to view designs from the ATA memory card and not the ones stored on the machine or from the External Card Reader box.
There is an additional program called Customizer that you can import designs, edit, and transfer them to your ATA card. Mine was part of my package deal when I purchased by 9700.
You need a a Reader/Writer box with a blank Janome memory card (PCMCIA) and Cusomizer software. With that you can move your downloaded .sew designs into Customizer and on to the card via the Reader/Writer box provied that they are within the allowable size constraints.
Firstly, format your compact flash card on your embroidery machine. This is presuming you have embroidery files in your jef format your machine reads on your computer. Place your compact flash in the compact flash card reader writer connected to your computer, open the compact flash card in your computer, open the file emb5. Now you can simply copy and paste a design from your computer to your flash card. It works for me. Goodluck.
here's how I do it. 1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files. 2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts. 3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable. 4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software). 5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth. 6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one). 7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar). 8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C). 9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing). 10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.
To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.
