I have the software PEDesign Version 1, used for my Brother 8200. Since I've worn out this 8200, I plan to purchase a Brother 8500 and wonder if my original software is compatible with this 8500. Any help? THANK YOU!!

I have the 8500 and I use PE Design 3.
I believe PED 1 also works. I just don't get around to using the machine much for embroidery.

What does the reader/writer box look like?


If I were to upgrade I would get something newer than the 8500. The cards are no longer available. Interfacing with computers/thumb drives or direct has fewer limits.

The dealer should be able to tell you. If you are buying it from a private party, they may have newer software to go with it.
