Embroidery Data Precautions

Observe the following precautions when using
embroidery data other than that created and saved
in this machine.
CAUTION
• When using embroidery data other than our
original patterns, the thread or needle may
break when sewing with a stitch density that is
too fine or when sewing three or more
overlapping stitches. In that case, use one of
our original data design systems to edit the
embroidery data.
■ Types of Embroidery Data that can
be Used
• Only .pes, .phc, and .dst embroidery data files
can be used with this machine. Using data other
than that saved using our data design systems or
machines may cause the embroidery machine to
malfunction.
■ Types of USB Devices/Media that
can be Used
Stitch data can be saved to or recalled from USB
media. Use media that meets the following
specifications.
• USB Flash drive (USB Flash memory)
• USB Floppy disk drive
Stitch data can be recalled only.
• USB CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW drives
You can also use the following types of media with

take about 5 to 6 seconds to recognize the

Memo
• To create file folders, use a computer.
• Letters and numerals can be used in the file
names. In addition, if the file name contains
no more than eight characters, the entire file
name will appear on the screen.
If the file name is more than eight
characters long, only the first six characters
followed by "~" and a number appear as
the file name.
■ Computers and Operating Systems
with the Following Specifications
can be Used
• Compatible models:
IBM PC with a USB port as standard equipment
IBM PC-compatible computer equipped with a
USB port as standard equipment
• Compatible operating systems:
Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista,
Windows 7, Windows 8
■ Precautions on Using the Computer
to Create and Save Data
• If the name of the embroidery data file/folder
cannot be identified, for example, because the
name contains special characters, the file/folder
is not displayed. If this occurs, change the name
of the file/folder. We recommend using the 26
letters of the alphabet (uppercase and
lowercase), the numbers 0 through 9,"-", and
"_".
• If embroidery data larger than 30 cm × 18 cm
(approx. 12 inches × 7 inches) is selected, a
message is shown asking if you wish to rotate the
pattern 90 degrees.
Even after being rotated 90 degrees, embroidery
data larger than 30 cm × 18 cm (approx.
12 inches × 7 inches) cannot be used.
(All designs must be within the 30 cm × 18 cm
(approx. 12 inches × 7 inches) design field size.)
• .pes files saved with the number of stitches or the
number of colors exceeding the specified limits
cannot be displayed. The combined design can
not exceed a maximum number of 500,000
stitches or a maximum number of 125 color
changes (Above numbers are approximate,
depending on the overall size of the design). Use
one of our design software programs to edit the
embroidery pattern so that it meets these
specifications.
• Embroidery data stored in a folder created in
USB media can be retrieved.
