I recently purchased the Kenmore Elite 19005 and I've embroidered several designs using the built in designs and it worked wonderfully. However, I uploaded 2 free Emb. designs from the internet and saved to my 4gb compact flash card in unzipped & jef format, but my Emb. Machine cannot read format. Do I need a software or is my card too large.

The card is too large. I was surprised at how small a file embroidery designs are ( none of mine are beyond 115k) so the inability to read a huge card isn't a big deal, smaller cards like 64- 128 mgs are fine.
Btw..does Elite insist you format the cards within the machine first? That can might make a difference too, my.. Janome 300e wanted it that way.
Dunno what format Elite uses, so no help there. JEF is usually a Janome format.

There is a YahooGroup for the Kenmore 19010 and 19005. So much useful information for free! Check it out.

card is too large you can't use over a 512mb and also need to format your card in your machine first.

Some technical background:

Removable medias (USB sticks & CF cards) larger than 2 GB are formatted as FAT-32. The smaller Janome machines (and I just assume the Kenmore as well) are only able to read FAT-16, an old file system structure usable for smaller media, only. Even newer Janome EMs are reported to be slow with FAT-32.

Try to pick up a small USB stitch and (to avoid trouble) format it with the EM ...
