I have had a Pfaff 300E for a while and we moved and now I can't get it to work. It will come on and it's hooked to the same computer as before. When I turn it on, it wants me to load the disk, which I can not find! I have looked everywhere! I found the cd holder but it was empty. I already contacted a dealer which was no help! It's just sitting here gathering dust. Does anyone have a spare pfaff cd? Can I bypass this on my computer and get it to work since its already downloaded?

I don't have the Pfaff you mentioned (I have the 4D Suite) so I am unable to give you specific advice; however, you may want to go to Yahoo Groups and join one of the Pfaff Groups and post your question there. There are several Pfaff Groups (may be one specifically for the Pfaff you own) and you may be able to get satisfactory response. I know the Pfaff Group that I joined helped me when I purchased a Pfaff CV. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Pfaff is no longer supporting the 300E software at all and the software will NOT work with Vista or Windows 7, only up to XP. Honestly your best bet is to replace it with a Brother machine like the 500 or if you want Disney the 950D. Either will give you the 4x4 embroidery area and take USB sticks so no special software is required.

I'm very surprised your Pfaff dealer didn't help you !
The Pfaff dealer I bought my Pfaff 300e from switched sewing machine brands.A couple of years ago I misplaced my 3D embroidery software CD.I contacted a Pfaff dealer I didn't even know in another town and had absolutely no problems to get a copy of the CD from that Pfaff dealer.

The Pfaff dealer requested the product license code from the back of the CD cover,which I had written on a separate piece of paper and into my manual.I was told it might take a while to get the CD copy from Pfaff.But I received a copy of the embroidery CD within several weeks.

And a few days later I found my original CD where it was supposed to be.I just didn't see it,although I looked in the same place twice !

A word of caution,it may not be legal for just anyone to copy the Pfaff software and give it to someone else.I think the embroidery software is copyright protected ! It's best for the owner of the machine to contact the Pfaff company. Especially if a Pfaff dealer refuses to get a copy of the software for the original owner of a Pfaff sewing and/or embroidery machine.
