1. Your downloaded file must be unzipped.
2. The file needs to be saved in the format for your Singer.
3. Join this Singer support site for your Quantum and others. Ask your question there.

I suspect it's a format issue. I had troubles getting my Janome to recognize my USB stick(S) Finally after an especially scathing email, they sent me a stick that worked.

Machine designs first designator is the file name. Your machine shows the file number for the design you want. You do still need to "select" that design number shown to actually begin teh file transfer from a thumb drive or cable direct from your computer if your machine has that feature.

My wife has a Janome 5700 Memory Craft sewing machine along with a number of Janome memory cards containing embroidery designs. Is it possible to transfer the designs from these memory cards to her Windows...

I don't have a 5700,mine is a 9000 but the cards that came with mine are a plastic aprox 1 inch square. This machine came out before there was any type of interface to connect to a back up system ie; USB or firewire. I would assume that if you can download new patterns from the internet,than you could back them up.If your machine does not have that capability then you will just have to find new memory cards for you machine online and order them.

Can not transfer designs from computer to mc10001. Error reading "can not be registered".

Are you using a Null-Modem cable to connect the computer to the machine? With the Futura I owned it would only work with my version of Windows by downloading a patch from Singer web site.
My machine "saves" the last 10 patterns, at some point I have to delete the saved patterns to make room for transferring another pattern. Also, if the pattern is too large the machine will not transfer it. Try reducing the size.
Good Luck!

I have a 19500 Kenmore elite embroidery/sewing machine. What is the best format to download embroidery patterns from the internet,my machine? to use with

According to the manual, your machine does data transfers in the .SEW format, so this would be the best format for you to download embroidery patterns in. However, if you find a pattern you like that's only available in other formats, I'd suggest downloading it in however many formats are available and see which, and how many of them, you can read. Experimenting on this doesn't cost you a thing other than a little time and can bring some big rewards!

Hi Lisa, I have the same machine. When I had that problem I was told that the design I was trying to do was to large for the machine. Basically it needs to be about a 5" x 7" design. When I put a smaller design in the machine was able to read it. Hope this helps! I'm still learning too.

Can I transfer a pattern from brother 4000d machine to usb

Welcome to Fix Ya!
Are you trying to transfer a built-in pattern from your machine to a USB flash drive? I'm not sure if built-in designs can be transferred in their original form. You might try editing the design a bit, save it to a memory space, then save it to the memory stick. If you have a manual, it should describe how to move designs from your embroidery machine to your computer, and vice versa.
If you are other readers have time to rate my answer, you'll help me become a better expert. If you can give me more specific information about what happens when you try to upload a design from your machine, and whether you have a manual feel free to leave a comment and I'll check back with you.   Cheers, Ginny
