SOURCE: embroidery stick

You need to wait a minute or so after inserting the stick before touching the icon on the screen. This is my procedure, which works for me:
Machine off; put on embroidery arm; turn on machine, calibrate embroidery arm; start to hoop project, look out threads etc for a little while (the machine's internal computer is "booting up" in this time); insert USB stick (make sure it lights up); finish hooping, thread machine for first colour etc for a minute or two; touch stick/floppy icon; design menus load; continue making my selections.
If you get a message "no disk" or something like that, push the stick in tighter - but don't be too rough with it!
The sewing machine actually has a computer inside it, and it needs time to do its thing. It is unfortunate that the internal computer is a very slow one! We are such a "now" generation, it is very frustrating having to wait. I do find that if I occupy myself while I am waiting, it is not such a nuisance and I avoid the temptation to just keep jabbing at that icon until something happens.

Husqvarna Viking not reading USB stick, hourglass comes on for a flash then nothing...just won't read the stick. It is a 2g stick


2g is pretty big. You may try a smaller stick in case your machine has a limited amount of memory space.

I inherited an Elna 2002 and I can't figure out where the spool of thread goes on the machine. There are two round metal pieces surrounded by a piece of felt on the right side of the machine but nothing...


Can you pull the metal pin up, I know that the Elna 5000, 7000 and 9000 all had retractable thread spool holders. There might be a little lip on the edge of the metal pin that you can grasp with your nails to extract it upwards.

Having trouble with reading usb sticks hour glass comes on for a second then nothing


Make sure that the stick that you are attempting to use it 2 GB or smaller.
Which machine do you have? Designer 1, SE, Ruby, Topaz or Diamond all use usb sticks and I may have a different answer depending on which one you have.

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.

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.
