Digitizer pro for XP

Hi i dont know if you know much about digitizer pro but im running version 2 L as far as i know as ive downloaded the updated software from the janome site. Anyway everytime i go to send a design to my sewing machine MC 10001 version 3 i get a message box that comes up as sending in the heading and "cannot be registered" as the error message. I would really appreciate some help as im just a beginner and im getting extremely frustrated almost to the point of saying enough is enough and getting rid of the program. But i really do want to use it - so if there is any way that you could possibly help me i would really be grateful.
Thanks for listening to me ramble before i go really crazy.

    Hi Chris (ziraffa) thank you soooo much for listening to me ramble and giving some suggestions - I was starting to think that i was going insane with all the installing and uninstalling and reinstalling LOL I have finally just solved the problem with the help of a kind lady from Janome, the problem was my internal memory was all used up on my mc10001 - the answer was to delete some designs that i had put on my machine and gauranteed what do you know the next design i sent via USB was fine - no messages - woohoo im not going insane - sigh of relief. Anyway that is the solution - just delete a couple of designs and free up the space.
    amazing how something like that can stop you from using a program and that is also why using an ATA PC card could still be done because it wasnt using the internal memory of the machine - Go Figure.....

    Thanks heaps for all your help though - its nice to know someone was listening...... Cheers and until we meet again with my next problem - Take Care!

Hi Janelle,
Sorry if you were waiting long, I must admit I was watching some football. So, from football to embroidery :D

I found this on the Janome FAQs:
Because Digitizer 10000 Version 1.3 is compatible with the Memory Craft 10001, 10000 V3.0, 9500 and 300E, you need to select which model you own in order for Digitizer to know how to communicate with your machine. Simply open EasyDesign, click on Memory Craft > Select Machine Model > and select your machine model number. Your icons for sending your designs will become available.

So, I know you probably have a slightly different setup to this scenario, but have you done the first part where you select the Machine Model, and then the Model Number? This is just setting the parameters so the software knows which set of rules to apply.

I always begin with the most basic stuff :)

Also, is there somewhere on the computer that will tell you the status of the Machine? It's possible that some 'service' needs to be running, so the Machine and the computer can 'see' each other and 'recognise' each other. If you can tell me anything along those lines, it would probably get us somewhere..

And how is the Machine plugged into the PC? USB?
And if you go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager, do you see any devices in the list with a yellow exclamation mark next to them?

Just some queries to be going on with. I think you should persevere, you been so frustrated by the thing that you deserve to make that next 'little leap forward'.

See, I'm rambling now.. See what you have done? :D
Get back to me with any more information/details/questions/ideas that transpire, and we'll put our heads together.

Chris (ziraffa)

ps Don't worry if we have to exchange a hundred posts.. that's how we'll progress!

    I just found this:

    So maybe uninstall digitizer and delete the upgrade patches you have already downloaded, and use the disk update feature to get the updates in chronological order, so that it's builds properly.
    The person on that forum reckoned they could (with the correct software setup) save the image to a CF card, and then the machine would recognise it. It seems that there is a problem with the image being sent by digitizer, via the USB cable.
    So, that suggests that you can use the card in the meantime, But if you want to really get to the bottom of the USB communication problem, a complete, comprehensive re-install would be the way to go, and that way the software can have all the correct patches loading up in the correct order.
    Hmm.. that's probably a lot information to take in, but you are much more familiar with all this than I am so..

    Food for thought..

    Woohoo! That's cool, Janelle..
    I'm glad that you found out 'why' it wasn't working, rather than the problem getting solved randomly.
    You take care also :)

How do i get drivers and more free memory on my notebook, Thats what it keeps flashing up and im getting stressed ive just got windows xp pro installed after weeks of problems.?

Martin, this laptop is so old and has so little memory, it'll be difficult to get much to run on it. The fact that support for WinXP is over leaves you with little to do with it. Donate it and get the tax write off. Keep the external extras you bought - you may be able to use them. Have a look at eBay or Craigslist in your area for a used PC - desktop or laptop. You'll probably be surprised to see what you can get for short money on a machine that can run modern apps. Look for a a machine that has a processor with at least 2 cores (more is better), 4GB RAM and 100GB or more HDD space. Look for Windows 7 - a 64 bit ("x64") version is better than a 32 bit ("x86") version. Most laptops will have built in WiFi and desktops will have a network connection. You can buy a desktop like this for about $60. I know, because I did this summer. HP, Core2Duo, 4GB, 150GB, Windows 7 x64. You'll be eligible for a *free* Windows 10 upgrade IF you have Windows 7 or later installed.

My comp crushed the windows xp professional and on reinstalling the recovery version on the toshiba SATELLITE L3000 the sound device was not there.

YOu need to locate your devices TRUE model. Look on your product label on bottom of laptop. There are various models of the L3000 series. Once you have the proper model number (looks like L3000-502I etc) Go to website. Go to DOWNLOADS tab, choose LAPTOP in first box, Choose SATELLITE on next one, and in third box scroll to your actual model number (the real one) and then download the SOUND drivers for your device. This should fix it. Also, you need to be sure and download teh proper version for Windows XP.. dont get the Windows 7 version. I would also make sure that XP is updated to the current SP3 version. To do this go to and run Microsoft Update.

How instile MS xp for notebook CP

If you have Vsta already loaded on your laptop and want to get rid of it, in favor of XP Pro, you must do a few things.
1 - determine if there are any files you need to keep, like documents (Word, etc.) or spreadsheets (Excel XLS, etc.) and like that.
2 - use a DVD-R or RW and write all the critical documents to the DVD so that you don't lose them in this process. Do a simple Copy from Windows Explorer.
3 - once all has been saved, the easiest way to accomplish what you want, is to boot the laptop using a legal Microsoft XP Pro CD or DVD, then follow the instructions to creating a bootable version of XP Pro on the lapop.
4 - you will need to decide if you want to have a dual-boot system or only an XP Pro system.
5 - if you want dual boot, follow the instructions; if XP Pro only, then follow those instructions. They should all reside on the XP Pro installation disk.

But remember that XP Pro is an older OS than Vista, so your installation media will only be able to get you so far. I would recommend following the instructions to creating an XP Pro bootable laptop only, and that means to then format the entire C drive, and then use the install media to create an XP Pro C Drive.

6 - go from there to an XP Pro laptop.
7 - as soon as the system is finished, and stable, rather than starting to install all the applications you want, like Office or other applcations, go to Microsoft's update site and update your XP Pro laptop to the newest versions of those things which will protect your system from outside problems. Update the protection applications from Microsoft first. Let the Update Site recommend, and choose from that list.

If you're going to install an anti-virus, like Norton AV, then start by installing the newest version of Norton AV or 360 or Internet Protection, etc. Then, go to the Symantec/Norton site, and update all those applications, too, especially the latest virus definitions or signatures.

Do it that way, to ensure your system is built slowly and with the most safety possible.

Be careful, and deliberate, and make sure you do not rush through this process, as it is extremely important to do it right, right from the start.

Good luck!

I dont know which driver to use for my inbuilt wireless card

I,d suggest trying this link.
and downloading the broadcom diagnostics utility, this will determine your card type. if this does,nt work for you. download them all, put them in a folder on your desktop.go to the device manager and click on the device/update driver. and search desktop folder, for the updated driver.
once this operation is completed succesfully, it would pay you to backup all of your device drivers, for future reference.
