I accidentally took my usb stick out while the machine was stitching and now it will not read the usb when I send the design by send1

Your drive is probably corrupt. Try to get a copy of the pattern on the PC hard drive. Then format the stick. To do this: PC: insert the stick, go to my computer, find the stick, right click it, and click format. Check "Quick format", unless you have a lot of time and are very patient. Then, put the pattern on the stick. Mac: open utilities, then find drive manager (I don't think that's what it's called, but something close to that.) then highlight the drive, and click format. Now that the stick is formatted, copy the pattern onto the stick, then retry sewing it. DO NOT UNPLUG THE STICK DURING THE FILE COPY, THE DRIVE FORMAT, OR THE SEWING! Hope I helped!

Why won't my baby lock ellure plus read my USB stick....I copied a pattern from the internet seems to have read the pattern but when I put it in the sewing machine it comes up P1/P1

You downloaded a toyota dst file. The babylock will embroider the design but it wont display the design or any picture or attributes. It will sew it, but try on scrap fabric first to be sure.

You can't just copy the files to the stick, you need to do it through the Husqvarna software, which then writes the files in a format that the sewing machine can read

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.

Do you have a hoop already on when you first re-calibrate the embroidery arm? You need the embroidery arm ONLY when you first turn on. Don't put the hoop on until you are ready to start embroidering. If this is not the problem, try re-loading the machine operating system. If you did not save your floppy or USB file, go to Husqvarna website and download the latest one, and re-load it. (Be sure to select the correct file for your particular machine i.e. floppy or USB.)

The Designer 1 needs the design in an shv format in order to read it. The floppy disk for an older machine may be created using several different programs but the Husqvarna Viking module is known as Disk Manager. It is included with many of the HV software packages. With a newer USB Designer 1, the program is Disk Manager USB.

Cannot get Janome 10001 to read via USB direct link from computer

here's how I do it.
1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files.
2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts.
3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable.
4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software).
5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth.
6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one).
7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar).
8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C).
9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing).
10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.

To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.
