Bernina Deco 340 can't open design file from USB

I have a Bernina Deco 340 sewing machine. I have the Artista Version 4 software on my personal computer. I can create a design and transfer it to the Bernina USB stick, but the Bernina Deco 340 can see the file, but can't open it.

Can anyone help me?

SOURCE: DOES THE BERNINA BERNETTE DECO 600 ACCEPT .ART

Not sure if you found anything out, but Deco 600 uses PES format only.
If you have the software (Deco Wizard) sometimes you can change it to PES and save the design.
Good luck

You need to insert a blank USB into the Deco BEFORE loading any files on to it. Turn the Deco on and the Deco will create an EMB folder on the USB. Then you can add EXP files to the EMB folder and the Deco will read them.

Does the Deco 340 Embroidery Machine use .ART or .EXP?


According to the manual for the Bernette Deco 340, the machine only reads .EXP+ files. ART files need to be converted to the EXP file type using the Bernina Embroider Software. (Even the designs on the Studio Bernina CD need the ART files converted to EXP.)

The manual is available from the Bernina support site: http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-5/Machines-en/bernette-deco-en . The direct link to the manual is http://www.bernina.com/getdoc/c6cc51e0-d5e9-4cb1-a7be-f164c0f4fdff/deco340_EN_GZD . (Note: you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to access the manual.)

I'm surprised that you were able to get any .art files to work until recently.

I hope this helps.

I purchased a CD Rom embroidery which had the usual formats on its cover, including art. which is what I need. I could open the CD on my computer, but when I tried to send it to my Artista 180, it told me...


How did you try to transfer the ART design to your 180? It needs Artlink by Bernina to do so or the Bernina Designer program. There are different ART versions and as I know, only the Designer can convert it to the version that your model can handle. I also own some CDs and never had any problem transferring any to a Personal Design card or stitching them out with my Bernina 165.

I just bought a Bernette Deco 340 and I am having a terrible time loading from the interbet design that will go on the USB stick and be accepted on my sewwing machine....I have call the sewing center,...


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.

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.
