I had the same problem when I didn't check the hoop size that I was copying to. I thought the machine had broken. Operator error!
Yes they can beak down at a moments notice.
Thank you so much, I did wonder if I was over using it repeatedly! Must try and slow down a bit in future.
Are you using PEDesign cardwriter, or PE Basic cardwriter? I think be bevintex is correct. If you had the computer hoop size set as 5x7 (for example), and hoop on machine is 4x4....this will happen. With PEBasic, all the transferred designs must be same size, or erase & start over.
I should have added that PE Design cards can be written with diff sizes at one sitting. Both Brother cards auto erase when you write a new design.
Yes I am using PEDesign card writer. Each time the previous design was wiped off the card. I was putting the card in the module, writing the font on it, then putting it straight into my Innovis 4000. It was being used cobstNtly and I think I made have killed it off!! It will not accept ny design for any size hoop.
I had a card for a Bernina that stopped working. Had to get a new one.
you have the wrong size pulled up , it may be a 5x7 design and you have 6x10. Check the hoop size and you should see your problem, when you correct that it will work again
Don't know about the Brother cards but on my Janome flash card It will only allow me to have 100 designs on it. It will tell me it can't load as I have 100 on it. All I do is delete a design from the card and there is space for the design I want to load.
Might be worth checking if Brother is the same.
Thanks for your reply, I'll have to check up on this, and see if I can find out to delete some!
I could be wrong but I think that a flash card is very different to a Brother card. You cannot remove anything from a Brother card. When I had a machine that used Brother cards I used them over and over again with no trouble.
