I have a Kenmore Elite 19005 embroidery machine. Is JEF the correct format to be using for embroidery designs? Also I can't get the compact flash card in the PCA adapter to read in the machine. Can anyone please help? Thank you.

Did you format the card before you put designs on it? Many Kenmores were made by Janome. Janome machines require you to format the card or usb stick prior to use. It throws a folder on called --it think-EMBF. SOMETIMES inside the EMBF folder there is another folder called DESIGNS.
SO before first use you have to put the card or stick in the machine and turn it on. Sometimes-can't remember which machines--you have to go into settings and choose "format". After you are done formatting put it in your computer and look at it to see if there is a DESIGNS folder inside the EMB, EMBF folder. If there is one, that is where you have to put your designs. If not just plop them in the EMBF folder. I would think that Kenmore would take JEF but not 100% sure on that. I saw a woman with an ELNA the other day and she takes JEF so...
Oh and CAUTION! KEEP IN MIND THAT WHEN YOU FORMAT YOUR CARD/STICK IT ERASES EVERYTHING OFF IT so make sure you have your designs saved on your computer or external!

Hi. Well it appears that I didn't have the compact flash card formatted correctly. I followed your directions and went into settings and formatted it. EUREKA. It worked. What I have found is that I can only load so many designs on to the compact flash card before it slows down so much that I can't get them to open in the machine. So I've had to play with the card a little and not overload it. Also, I guess I only need to load in the designs in the JEF format not the text documents in that come with each design that are in a different format?? Guess you can tell that I'm totally new to this. At any rate, thank so much for your help with this. I'll have to play more with it now that you've helped me figure out this first big hurdle. Jan

I work at a sewing store and we have embroidery clubs and classes there all the time. We like to say "use your card or stick like you would a cup." Meaning you only take the designs you are using right then and put them on your card. If you keep adding designs you will make you machine's brain look and look to load those designs. You have to remember you may have a computerized machine, but it's "Brain Size" isn't like a computer. Many designs on a card will slow it down. For embroidery club we ask the attendees to bring an empty card or stick for the desiign they are going to use so they won't be looking forever for the design and can get right to sewing.
Do yourself a favor and make a filing system on your computer or external to keep your designs in Categories. My hard drive looks like someone dumped an entire bucket of designs onto it. I got Santa next to a basketball player next to a kitty. Ughhhh... Unless you have a viewing software such as Embird Iconizer (I have this) or Embrilliance thumbnailer or one that shows your designs as icons, you will be lost. Wilcom Truesizer is a free viewing and converting software-Google "Wilcom Truesizer Free Download" unless you want to try Embird's 30 day trial.
Another bit of advice-you might notice the PC cards are getting hard to come by. You may want to stock up on them if you can find a good deal such as on eBay etc.
Go to any embroidery event or class that you can find. Come here. Join Yahoo groups. There is a lot of info out there! Good luck and have fun with this fun "addiction"!
