There are several reasons that it may not be able to use your flash drive. Older models won't be able to handle large flash drives and may only be able to read up to 2 or 4 GB and won't cope with 16GB or so - depends on the age of the machine. Also some flash drives use different technology and are faster then the older ones, this wikipedia article covers some of the differences http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Serial_Bus
You will need to use flash drives that are compatible with your machine.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: is it possible to use an external floppy drive on the Ruby embroidery machine?

Nope. Just use a USB stick. And don't over load it.

SOURCE: USB port won't read

If this usb is plugged into your machine, please note, they only read up to 2 gigabytes.
Are the files in the correct format? Under the correct file?

For example, a Janome reads jef or jan files into the machine under the embf directory. the file extension is particular to the model.

How can I send designs from my PC to my Toyota 830 embroidery machine when my Pantograms software/hardware is no longer working?


Some of the Pantograms software programs require a USB dongle connected to the computer. However, the driver for this dongle has to be installed before you install the software or connect the dongle. I suspect you may not have installed the driver or the dongle is missing.

Assuming that the dongle is connected:
Close your embroidery software program and all of the Pantograms software, including the Network C software, on your computer and remove the USB device. Put the software install CD into your machine's optical drive. (If your new machine doesn't have an optical drive, get a USB optical drive or copy the files from the CD to a 1GB+ USB flash drive at another computer with an optical drive.) If Windows XP starts the autorun routine for the CD, click Exit. Then double-left click on My Computer to launch File Explorer. Go to the CD drive (or USB drive if you used the work-around) and double-click on it. Open the Rainbow Drivers folder and then open the XP folder. Double click on the program: setup.exe . Choose Complete install as the program executes. Then close File Explorer when the install is done. Now insert the USB dongle and follow the on-screen message about New Hardware found to install the Rainbow driver from C: .

If you do not see the New Hardware found message, try putting the dongle into a different USB port. (Make sure to avoid USB hubs - they can add to USB device issues.) If the dongle doesn't work at any port, you may need to use a different method. There is a flash reader available for connecting a USB flash drive to the Toyota 830 here: http://www.plrelectronics.com/lab/usb_reader.php . (Scroll down to the Toyota machine section. This isn't cheap but it is cheaper than some of the newer embroidery software packages.)

I hope this helps.

My machine does not recognize my thumb drive with patterns. my friend's machine does not recognize it either


Some machines require the thumb drive to be initialized by the machine before loading. Or, the drive may be too large for the machine to handle. Check your manual.

What format files are you trying to load? The machine recognizes .pes and .dst files. Turn the machine off before inserting the flash drive then turn it back on when the drive is in place.

I cannot get my machine to download onto windows 7. i have downloaded the upgrade software and the patches from the website. i get a message that says usb device is not recognized. what is the problem?


Make sure you're plugging the USB cable from the machine into a USB port in the BACK of your computer, not one of the front ports or a port on a USB hub. The cable and machine need more power than most of those ports provide, a technical detail that Singer doesn't realize. Good luck!

I just purchased a pe770 Brother embroidery machine. Do I need anything other programs to download patterns, from my cp, to my flash drive, to use with this machine?


All you need to know when you purchase designs from the internet is that your Brother PE770 will only recognize DST and PES formatting. There isn't anything else!

How to I randfer embroidery designs on a flash


If the designs are already on a formatted* flash drive and in the format of the embroidery machine and the embroidery machine has an USB Port-A receptacle, you just plug it into the machine.

If the flash drive was not formatted for the Janome, then this may help - http://janome.com/fusetalk/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=7&threadid=639

Get a new flash drive and start fresh.

Create a folder on the PC's hard drive and name it Embroidery Downloads and copy or send from the flash drive you now have. Keep the flash drive as a backup.

After you format the new flash drive, you can then copy as needed from the Embroidery Downloads folder. Just do a couple.
