USB's can be picked up at most large quilting stores, office supply stores and smartneedle.com also sells pretty usb's. Hope this helps a little and they find your boxes soon. Marian
thanks, I'm afraid the boxes are a lost cause. I guess the moving companies have never delt with a quilter/embroiderer who is in withdrawal but they are about to find out how serious this is!! I will be nice but firm when I finally get to speak with an actual person. So far, just forms back and forth.
If I'm not mistaken all USB's will run with your computer, machine, laptop, etc... and any other device that will read them. It's just the file type will only show with the machine it is meant for.....
Exactly! They do need to be formatted for the machine though. My machine creates the folders it wants on a new stick and will only find designs if they are in the folder it wants them in. You can't just put a stick loaded with designs in a machine because it won't be able to find them.
That was probably my problem.
If you put a new stick in your machine, it should format it. (My Janome does anyway. )
Hi Rachel (I'm guessing!) There was a post about this back in March. I'll attach it here for you to have a look at. Good luck with it all. Love Chris
Thanks tis was very helpful.
I did not know there were different sticks for different machines. Both of my brother machines will use any stick. If you can use any type I would stick with a "brand name" one - I have had better luck with them.
