I'm going to assume that you mean the Digitizer 2000 software.

Unfortunately, your best bet will be to either wait and see if another copy (complete with dongle) shows up on eBay or upgrade to the Digitizer 10000 version (while Customizer 10000 is NOT compatible with the MC9000, Digitizer 10000 IS), either via your local dealer or snagging it on eBay.

Right now, there's two auctions on eBay for the Dig 10000. It seems to run roughly around $300-400.

Best of luck to you!

I am looking for a replacement dongle for my VIP customizing software. My old dongle was damaged and no longer works. My software is from around 2000, however I have been asked to transfer some desi

You should contact the software vendor. They should be happy to replace your non-working dongle for a new one, even for a very old software version. They may have to charge you for the replacement dongle, but it should be much less than the cost of new software.

If they balk, know that there are now many different software options out there for much less than the typical dongle-enabled packages. Don't pay $1200 for an 'upgrade' if you can get a different package for $99. Search Google for 'embroidery software' and you'll see a lot of choices.

Elna dongle won't let me download digitizer EX ver 4

Sounds like the Hasp driver for your dongle is not up to date, or is not compatible with your operating system

What can i do, my digitizer jr dongle is not recognized on my laptop?

Does the dongle attach to the serial port on the computer?

It may be that the software only recognizes a particular port (e/g: COM2:) and your PC's port is configured as COM1...or vice-versa.

My Janome customizer 2000 will not write to the scan card. It says that it will not recognize the serial port.

Hi, I have the same problem with mine. Janome have not been very helpful. I didn't know if it was the card or the card reader/writer. I have a Janome CX500. Have you solved any of the problems?

What platform (WIndows XP, etc.) can the 9000 digitizer use?

Digitizer 2000? Or Digitizer 10000?

There's a BIG difference.

So far, it doesn't seem that Janome's put out an update to Digitizer 2000 for Vista (though they have for Customizer 2000), but they have for Digitizer 10000.

However, XP should be fine with Digitizer. You may have to go into your "Properties" menu for Digitizer and set the compatibility back to say, "Windows 95" though.

To do this, right-click on the software icon for Digitizer on your desktop. On the contextual menu will appear several choices - select "Properties" and then click on the "Compatibility" tab on the Properties dialog box. This is where you change how your computer (essentially) recognizes the application.

You may need to experiment with the options. Try "Windows 95" first ... and if that doesn't work, select and try another.

Looking for Dongle and Power Cord for Memory Craft Digitizer 2000

The only way to get a new dongle for your software is to purchase a new software package.

You can call Janome and ask them ... but I'm 99.9% sure that they'll tell you the same thing. :(

This must be wrong. As long as you have the dongle, and its an original one. Janome should swap it for a new one. You might have to pay for the exchange but it should be aloot cheeper than buying a new.

If not, send me an email on tonje (at) tonje . no and I will give you a good price for a new Digitizer Pro v.2.0
