I recently switched the color chart in my machine from the Brother Embroidery colors to the Madeira 40 colors and when I plug the flash drive in with the design that has a color chart of the madeira 40 colors on it already (so no conversion needed there) it is reading the colors all wrong.. So is my catalog software actually but that would be getting off topic... So I went into the edit colors and can only find 75 out of the 365 Madeira colors.. Anyone know if A.. I can fix the wrong reading problem and or B.. I can upgrade the list of colors the machine brain has? Thanks in advance for any and all advice..

Not sure what you can do, but colors are discontinued now and again so I doubt if any software or chart is current or can be kept current.

I just choose what the pdf indicates for the selected design and line them up in the order they will be stitching. I have a multiple spool thread stand and start at the left and work to the right and consult the pdf along the way.

Sometimes my chosen colors are close enough and not spot on. No one but me knows the difference.
