Bernina USB transfer embroidery troubles

Does anyone have any hints on how to transfer embroidery designs to my Bernina Artista 635 using a Bernina USB stick? My stick (I bought from store that sold me the machine) says Bernina 630/640/730/830. Is this the right stick? Also, my Bernina recognizes the stick, but does not see the .art files I put on it. HELP!

Try saving a file in .EXP format and see if it will open.

Not sure about this being the correct stick. If you gave the dealer the model, then they should have sold you the correct product.

Are the files (1) unzipped, (2) are you sure the format is art and not exp, (3) are the files within the size of the hoop you have attached to the EM?

I would try at least one EXP file to see and if it still is not working, call the dealer.

I used to own a Bernina 630, which is almost identical to the 635. These machines read the .EXP format, not .ART.

PS here. If you need to convert your files to exp, Wilcom True Sizer is a free download.

Just bumped three threads containing the term
Bernina USB

Hoping the 2gb USB sticks that hubbie found at Fry's today will work. They did not have the 2gb size at Target, Best Buy or Radio Shack.

Sewnanny is correct. The 635 reads .exp files not .art.

Here is another discussion regarding USB compatibility with Bernina embroidery machines.

Thank you all! I did try opening an .exp and it opened. Darn dealer...they sold me the machine just last month and should know these things. Also, I wish the huge instruction manual would tell me these things!
