I am trying to buy an embroidery machine. I wanted the Brother 770 but I was told it would not accept Disney designs from anywhere except ibroidery. Does anyone know if that's true ?

I bought the 780D with disney because I was afraid of buying the online version. I have only stitched out a couple of disney designs and truly was not impressed with the ones I got with the machine. They stitch out ok, just were the old mickey, daisy, pluto designs. Ohter than the needle threader breading immediatley the machine has done a great job.

I believe you are correct. I don't see this as a great disadvantage as I would buy just the ones I wanted from ibroidery and the savings from the Disney machine would easily pay for them. If you are a huge Disney fan, this might make a difference. (I don't think your finished product can be sold, however, but can't say for sure on this.)

Hmm, I would double check that. Even Brother embroidery machines that are Disney machines can use the Disney designs from ibroidery. I know before I could download any designs, I had to register my machine on the website.

It's true, you register your machine than download designs from ibroidery. The memory cards with Disney designs only worked with Disney machines (there's a chip in the machine). Most memory cards are being discontinued and everything design related is going web based. Currently only Brother has licencing with Disney.

I have a question.... MUST you purchase a Disney machine from Brother to be able to download designs from ibroidery? Could you download using the 770 or do you need a "D" model machine ... such as 780D?

I have a great Babylock machine but have thought of purchasing a Brother so I could purchase the Disney designs for grandchildren.

It doesn't have to be a "Disney" model but you do need a machine listed on the site. The Babylock won't work because you need the serial/internal machine number to load designs. Older model machines without memory also won't work.
