Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

Open Question

The USB port on my Bernina Artista 200 embroidery computer does not read my USB device. The USB icon is grayed out on my screen and will not read the USB device which contains my embroidery designs I am trying to load and sew. Thank you for any help!

You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.

When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.

Enjoy your fantastic machine

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

SOURCE: USB to Serial port cable for Bernina Artista 180

Just happen to be sitting in front a Bernina 180 at this very moment - with the connecting cable attached to a Keyspan USA-19HS Adapter. It is a current adapter available from either Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) or any number of computer retailers - physical or online. Seems to run around $30.00 just about everywhere. Auction sites may have bargain. Worked like a charm on an older XP computer as I was able to test the older software I had due to it having the necessary parallel port the the older dongle. While I am fairly certain this combination would also work on my Windows 7 computer, I am unable to test it as I have not come across a parallel adapter that will work with the older software parallel dongle. I've had other programs/peripherals that utilize usb to serial adapter (on my Windows 7) that have worked fine, so I suspect this would also be the case.

Hope this helps. If you have specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Happy stitching,
Kim

How do I install Bernina Artista Software V5 on Windows 8?


Contrary to what Bernina has said about their software (Bernina Embroidery Software v5), that particular software CAN be installed AND ran in Windows 8 with no issues whatsoever. When you install it, it will perform normally (not go to a blue screen like Bernina says), then it will ask you to insert the dongle. After installation, go to the Bernina Embroidery icon and right click. Select troubleshoot compatibility. The computer will run a test to see what system you should run the software as. It should say Windows XP Service Pack 3. Select next. Now double click your Bernina software and it should start up fine. Hope this helped.

I purchased a serial port that is not compatable with my sewing machine, I also purchased an updated software with Bernina to make my embroidery machine user friendly. however,I am unable to connect


Problem is that the Bernina software you are using expects to talk to a 'COM port and the PC's USB serial interface doesn't automatically default to a COM port. Make sure you have installed the software that was delivered with your USB-to-Serial adapter and look on your PC's 'Device Manager' under 'Ports' - you should see the USB adapter listed and it should be assigned to a COM Port number. You need to check what COM port numbers are accepted by the Bernina embroidery software (sorry, I cant remember and haven't got one here presently) - it should be in the Options menu. You have to ensure that the USB 'virtual COM port' is the same as that which is set in the Bernina software. If the Bernina software doesn't support the COM port allocated to the USB interface, go to 'Properties, Port settings, Advanced, COM port number and set this to the same as the COM port number in the Bernina software - hopefully this should set up the link OK, provided you haven't got a COM port clash - to avoid this, it's usually best to choose a COM port number of 2 or above.

I need to order one I lost mine bernina 180 cable


This is for connecting the embroidery machine to the PC?

You will need a cable with USB port A on one end and USB port B on the other - both male.

You can get this style of cable at an electronics store.

If this is not what you mean, then you need a Bernina dealer to order one for you.

Connection problem with computer to sewing machine and reader/writer


Hello,
It is not true that the 180 is not compatible with new software.
I'm owning a artista 180 from 2002 and just installed the software designer V5+ on a laptop with windows vista.
The only problem was that there was no serial port on the laptop, now I have a new cable with USB ans serial output and the software works very well !!
When you contact Bernina you will get the same answer.

Embroidery


If you doing an embroidery, it has to have something to do with the way the design was digitized. We have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 and have never come across this problem. The embroidery machine only reads what is on the disk. Try putting your design through the computer.
