Bernina 200 will not read my USB stick

My computer will copy the .Art50 design to my USB stick without a problem, but the sewing machine won't read it. Do I have to buy the Bernina USB stick for an additional $75 for the sewing machine to read it? Thanks.

    Sorry I posted too early. I was saying you have to be sure your usb drive is formatted the right way, depending on what accepts your bernina (FAT, FAT32, NTFS, etc). Also be sure the total disk storage does not go above the one allowed by bernina.

You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.

When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.

Enjoy your fantastic machine

Take the power cords to a small appliance repair shop and have them tested. If they are okay, then you will need to take the SM to an authorized Bernina repair person.

There is no fuse in your machine. If it went simply dead then either the power pack or the controller have failed - they will have to be replaced. This implies at least a basic experience in dismantling your machine and electronics repair - once you dismantle it you will have to check the output of the power pack to determine which part has failed and replace it.
You will have to take it to a repair shop, it will cost you about $200 so you must now decide if it won't be more cost effective to just buy a new machine than to repair this one.

I accidentally took my usb stick out while the machine was stitching and now it will not read the usb when I send the design by send1


Your drive is probably corrupt. Try to get a copy of the pattern on the PC hard drive. Then format the stick. To do this: PC: insert the stick, go to my computer, find the stick, right click it, and click format. Check "Quick format", unless you have a lot of time and are very patient. Then, put the pattern on the stick. Mac: open utilities, then find drive manager (I don't think that's what it's called, but something close to that.) then highlight the drive, and click format. Now that the stick is formatted, copy the pattern onto the stick, then retry sewing it. DO NOT UNPLUG THE STICK DURING THE FILE COPY, THE DRIVE FORMAT, OR THE SEWING! Hope I helped!

How do I get pes files open8 using windows 8


In order to 'see' the .pes files you have to have some software to read it like embird or embrillance. Embird is $164 but has some neat features such as being able to change colors and convert from one type embroidery files to another. You can just transfer them to the USB drive by: Plug in your drive, copying them, eject the usb drive, and then plug it into the machine. The machine will read it without you having a program that can read machine formats.

I just bought a 730 Bernina sewing and embroidery system. I just tried to send design to embroidery machine and got the message I have no memory left. How can I add memory?


My suggestion is to transfer unused designs onto a USB stick or connect your sewing machine to your computure and save them.Then you can delele them and have enough space to put additional designs on your machine.You can call your dealer and ask, but I dont think it can be done without sending it back to the manufactor. If it can be done it would know doubt be fairly expensive.

USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash


I have a Designer I USB that suddenly started not reading the usb stick that came with the machine. I was terrified that my machine was going bad, but I always start with the cheapest solution first. I bought a new usb stick, loaded the designs from the old one into my software then loaded everything on the new usb stick. My machine reads it every time so far. I replaced the usb stick about 3 months ago and have not had another problem since. I don't know if this is your problem, but usb sticks can go bad and since they are so cheap, I would try this first.

The first thing you need to do is put your blank USB in your Deco and turn the Deco on. When you do that, the Deco will create a EMB file on your USB stick. Then you need to download EXP design files and put them in that EMB folder.

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.

If I can help with anything else... lmk.

Bernina Deco 340


If the new machine you refer to is the computer, is it running Vista ??

There are an increasing number of issues associated with Vista with many/all manufacturers.

I recommend you contact the education officer at Bernina Head Office in your country to ask if there are known issues and any workaround suggestions, or updates they may have.

Embroidery


If you doing an embroidery, it has to have something to do with the way the design was digitized. We have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 and have never come across this problem. The embroidery machine only reads what is on the disk. Try putting your design through the computer.
