    It is the memory card. As far as I know there is no lock on it you just put it in the slot.

There are some memory card that has physical lock, you can see it on the card itself, but for some, you can check it if you put the card into your computer, and try right clicking on it, it would then tell you if it's lock or not.

Transfer designs to my blank memory card


You need a a Reader/Writer box with a blank Janome memory card (PCMCIA) and Cusomizer software. With that you can move your downloaded .sew designs into Customizer and on to the card via the Reader/Writer box provied that they are within the allowable size constraints.

Will not accept memory card


I loaded a different pattern to the card and it worked. Guess it was just a problem with the first one I tried. Hopefully, it won't happen again.

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

I have The problem about Janome Memory craft 9000


Do you have a Magic Box or Amazing Box? The only way I know how to rewrite your card is to insert it in the Box and it will ask you if you want to erase the card. I have the same machine and I believe your cards that you buy with designs already on them are non erasable. You have to buy a blank card to put your own designs on them.

Memory card


You will need to buy a Compact Flash (CF) card (up to 128MB is a good size, NOT more than 256MB), a card reader to attach to the PC also a PCMCIA carrier/adapter for the CF card to be inserted into your sewing machine if the CF card will not go directly in.

Memory Card 17


I believe only some of the '8000' cards can be used on the '9000' and this may not be one of them or it could be faulty.If you brought it from a retailer I suggest you return it explaining your problem, they may exchange or refund your money.These are 'old' cards now I believe apx 11-12 years.Hope you find a solution.good luck
