The solution was sooo easy.....one of my online embroidery groups suggested to put the card in my Janome and let the machine format it. It took about a minute and did not tell me what it was doing..and It worked! It put two folders on my card, Emb5 and ord#5, and I was to copy the jef files into the Emb5 folder, which I did and bingo! my Janome 9500 read the card and produced a screen with my jef files in it. I am a happy camper....I don't know if this works with all Janome machines but it did with mine.
Thanks for being here to help.

Format pc card on janome memory craft 300 e


# Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
# 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
# 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
# 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
# 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
# 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Need a reader/writer or box converter for a Rose


It's a reader/writer box, however, the boxes (all brands pertaining to embroidery) use specially sized cards specific to embroidery programs. They don't work any differently than any other type of reader/writer or flash card, it's just that the generic brand cards will not fit.

The Box for the Rose (or any other Husqvarna) is hard to find because they don't make them anymore. Also, it requires a serial port instead of the new USB connection. Sometimes you can find them on Ebay. I don't know if anyone makes a serial port device with a USB adapter on the other end, but might be worth looking into.

I would suggest that you purchase one of the newer boxes that will read and convert any designs you may want to download from the net. There are a few . .

The Ultimate Box by Vicant which is also backward compatible to Win 98, which is what your Rose actually reads.

(There is also Magic Box, but I don't know anything about that one.) There's another one, also, but it only comes with a full embroidery program. $$$$

The only drawback is that it will not read any of your Husqvarna embroidery cards because they are code protected.

I have an Ultimate Box Plus with conversion feature and it works fine for me, very easy to use. If you get the box, make sure you get one that comes with the card and that it's an updated version.

Here's a link for information. I actually bought my box somewhere else cheaper, but this site is chocked full of information.

Having problem downloading patterns from disc to memory card have spent hours trying


Judy, you mention memory card so I am assuming you are refering to a Compact Flash card that you insert into a PCMCIA adaptor.
The card must be smaller than 512 MB, any larger and the machine won't acknowledge it. You need a type 1 card and compact flash card adaptor, a compact card reader/writer unless you have an integral multi card reader integrated into your computer. The card format must be FAT, the older computer file format. Insert the card into the adaptor and insert into your machine, wait for the warning screen to clear, if the machine asks "format card" hit yes on the machines display screen . If there is no offer to format the card use the SET icon on the display screen, you need embroidery mode, then arrow forward till you reach the Format options, select ATA card, hit yes, it will warn you card contents will be erased, hit OK. Just say yes to any new questions. Wait for the warning screen to dissapear, when it does you can eject the card adaptor, now insert the card alone into your digital media card reader which should be inserted via a USB connection to your computer, locate the drive your computer has allocated to the card and open it. You will see two types of folders, ORD which are for combined decorative stitches you might want to save, those you put together in the machine, and EMB folders, those are where the machine expects to find designs,11 of each.
Only use them to transfer designs between the machine and computer or vice versa, don't use them to store all your designs in, you will over tax your machines on board processor.
To pop designs into them, open your design CD, select the design you want to stitch, copy it, now open the card in your computer, open the first folder, number 5, I think, and Paste into that folder. Use only JEF formats, your machine wont read any other format.
Don't transfer designs into the machines built in folders, you will severely constrict the machines memory to the point where it wont be able to access enough memory to stitch your designs. Use the compact card as an external drive, which it is anyway, the machine will still stitch the design as if it were in its own memory. To access the card in the machine, select embroidery mode, then the card icon and finally if needed the file icon.
Hope this helps you
