The FY-100 reads Tajima .DST files from a built-in USB interface. You copy the Tajima files onto the included memory stick, then insert the memory stick into the machine and it lets you select which file you want to use with a touchscreen.

From all the info I can get it is the same chassis as a brother PE100. It used custom eeaprom cards and read .PEC or .PES files.
It could also be like the Bernette Deco 500 or 600 series. I have also seen a modification of this chassis called the EM10 by Husqvarna and it is USB direct connect and comes with software that outputs .HUS files.

How do I transfer embroidery designs onto the expressive 900 machine without the digitizing software? Can I even do this?


You can purchase design and send them directy to your sewing machine. It has direct connect PC . Which means you can connect it directly from your computure and transfer designs to your sewing machine. Also you can purchase designs in your format from different web sites. They will E mail them to you. Then save them to a USB stick. You can load them from a USB stick into your sewing machine .Look for 2 gig USB sticks ,because when you use larger ones it takes a long time to load the designs. The only drawback to not owning sofeware is you will not be able to see the designs if you chose to save them on your computure. Embird has a 30 free trial and is reasonable priced. It give you the ability to convert designs from other formats and use them in your machine. It will open zipped designs and acts as storage unit for your designs. I do not represent them but i found that it is less expensive than many companies and works well.

FY100 embroidery machine


Hello,

Take a very good look at the upper thread very well because it is possible that it is truly broken because for it to stop working something must have truly happen.

If after careful look and nothing was observe broken, then i advice you carry out maintenance check or service on the machine. This will help in a long way to fix the problem.

Take care

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.

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

Downloading embroidary designs for the Janome MC 350E


Firstly, format your compact flash card on your embroidery machine. This is presuming you have embroidery files in your jef format your machine reads on your computer. Place your compact flash in the compact flash card reader writer connected to your computer, open the compact flash card in your computer, open the file emb5. Now you can simply copy and paste a design from your computer to your flash card. It works for me. Goodluck.

Formating memory


You need to format the usb stick in the machine itself, don't use a high memory one or one that has a partitioned area. 1 gigabyte or lower. You need to use the set icon on the machine and arrow through the pages to find the Format screen. Select the tab for USB device. Then click yes to the prompts, that installs the correct folder system. Now the software end,open easy design and select machine from the top toolbar, set machine type to 11000. Open a design and use the file drop down menu and select Save As, choose JEF in the file type bar, you will see a button below Save , Delete, called options, click on it, you'll find a list of machines, set it for the 11000. It is that selection that saves the design in the correct format. There are 2 jef formats, the old Jef for the previous machines and the enhanced Jef for the 11000. Now rename the design, open the flash memory menu and in the right hand pane you should see your usb flash drive, if it's the only one you have connected all well and good, if not click on each flash drive to find the correct one.You'll know which one it is,because in the window below you will see an Embf folder, open it, you must always open the Embf folder before writing a design, now some have child files inside, emb, if so open that as well , don't create a new folder it wont be read by the machine. Now write the design to the usb flash drive. Do you have a copy of the PCtools software? if so you need to download the update as it's that software that allows 2 way communication between the machine and the computer. Keep an eye on how many designs you insert into the internal memory, it isnt very big. You shouldnt need to reformat the internal memory,
