Re: Files not showing on MC12000
Since you've been doing this for a while, you know that the 12000 is very particular about where you put the designs. If you routinely put your designs in the EmbF folder inside the EMB folder, it may have filled up. There is a limit of 100 designs in that folder, and any other folders that you add. And of course you know that the designs on the stick are sorted by hoop size, so you have to turn pages to see all of them.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
When you put a USB stick in a Mac, it creates some additional hidden files. One is for keeping track of how you want the folders displayed. Another is the recycle bin for that device. These should not cause the 12000 stress, but I've found that the sometimes do. The Janome implementation of Microsoft's file system is pretty bare bones, and if something is even slightly out of the ordinary, it can freak out. This program will remove those files from the USB stick:
In the past on older models I've sometimes had the machine fail to recognize new files. Formatting in the computer or the machine did not help, because the format operations did not overwrite old data on the USB stick or memory card. In those cases I would copy a very large non-design file onto the device, and then delete it. This overwrote all the old erased design data, which the machine seemed to be trying to use even though it was erased. Music files work well for this - just delete them after copying. And don't keep any non-design files on your USB drive, or folders other than the ORD and EMB ones the machine puts there.
