Another stupid question....

gracelubold <glubold@...>
 

Hi, I just got the MBX upgrade. My first question is this. Does installing the upgrade "kill" the 3.0 upgrade dongle? Can the upgrade be installed without the 3.0 dongle to protect it. I would like to be able to use it on another computer at my cottage. If the question has already been answered, I apologize.... I found no reference in the message list. Thanks, Grace

I haven't seen one, but I understand there is a sticker on the box that says "Version 1.01". You can also tell when you turn the machine on, as the version number is displayed briefly.

Anne-if you don't have your machine yet, it will be the upgraded version-just look on the box to assure yourself and it will have a sticker that has the serial no and other things AND version 1.01 on it (I(the machine itself will flash it on the start up screen too).

I have designs saved on memory sticks which I use to laod patterns to my 11000, am I going to have to buy new sticks for the 12000. I understand that to upgrade the machine you have to use an empty MS, so I guess you need to have a seperate stick for this and delete the upgrade once you have done it. I suspect that my machine when I get it will not have been upgarded.

The 11000 uses a very small memory stick if I rememebr rightly, what size does the 12000 use????

Thanks......

Anne.


Bonnie Bertha is here!!

Anne <csarina43@...>
 

I collected her this afternoon and have sucessfully loaded the update, had a little play. Tomorrow I will put the embroidery unit on and have a go at one of the absolutely fantastic designs that are built into the machine.

The instruction book will be required reading for a while I guess, plus I have 6 lessons at the shop.....my 11000 needle threader was well and truly jammed, she was looking very forlorn when I left her at the shop.


Re: bobbin winding

OK just tried again and yes I can use the stop start but not the foot pedal, I didn't think about the stop start as I have always used the foot pedal to wind bobbins, thank you.

I was in embroidery mode yesterday and had no trouble winding a bobbin. You have to either use the foot pedal or detach the pedal and use the start button.

Also, everyone probably already knows already, but when I first wound a bobbin it was only a little more than 1/2 full. You can turn the little screw beside the bobbin which moves the little "stop" in or out so you can stop the bobbin winding where you want it to be.

Must make sure I sit and wind a few and have them ready.

I now have my "baby"

Laura Maxwell
 

After waiting (impatiently) 2 months, my baby has arrived. Fantastic machine, if a little intimidating. I almost expect it to feed the cats, walk the dog, do the dishes, and give me a fabulous back massage. Maybe one of the settings? Talk about information overload! I had my 7700 for a year, but this machine is so far above it.
I am glad I joined the group when I paid for my 12000. You people answered so many of my questions, that I already know what adjustments I should have.
Thank you.
Happy, happy, joy,joy,

Re: question about digitizing DVD

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

We're working with beta software, so we don't have the DVD. It sounds like it was made with a program to act as an index, and that program is buggy. It's a shame it wasn't made as a conventional DVD. Those WMV files are difficult to play on a Mac, and cannot be used at all on an iPad. Your best bet is to contact Trevor directly through his website:

Hi Jim,
I have a question about the DVD that came with MBX.... this is the
instructional DVD

When I put it into the player it will autorun and open up the table of
contents. On the left column are all of the files listed in blue as wmv
files. The first day I had the DVD and clicked on the file -- let's say
the Quick Start.wmv that is 2 hrs long... it opened in windows media
player and played fine. I stopped it half way through as I ran out of
viewing time.

When I went to view it again it would not open. The finger pointed to it, I
clicked, I double clicked and nothing happened. I tried other files down
the list and they did the same thing.. nothing opens.

If I go into Windows Explorer and click open the DVD in the drive then the
list of things on the DVD comes up. I click on training videos and then I
get the list of them and can open it that way.

Is it me or the DVD that the files listed on the table of contents that
first open on autorun will not click open to view them. Since they are in
blue with the file format behind them, I am assuming that they should open.

Thanks!

Jim - I appreciate so much the information I have learnt about this machine but at this time I have decided to keep my 7700 with all the extra feet and accessories that I have and can now use with confidence thanks to your FootBook App....and I will not purchase the 12000. We are leaving for good next year and I know my life style will be different and if I am honest with myself I probably won't use the embroidery unit as much as I would like to and as the 'sewing 'part of the machine is more or less the same as the 7700 it seems silly to move on.

Re: Question about 11000

Thanks for that info Jim and all the time I thought there were some little birds caught up in there :)

I don't think I will ever use the quiet mode as the 12000 is so quiet already.

A lot of the 11000s make a kind of squeaky chirping while moving left to right. It fades with use, and is due to the drive belts. We never had a service problem, and all of them got better with use. You're right about the 12000 - it is without a doubt the quietest embroidery machine Janome has ever made, even without turning on the "quiet" mode.


Re: Memory Sticks

Jim_Stutsman <jim@...>
 

The 12000 can use all of your existing 11000 memory sticks, and it can use just about any size you find. However you should buy the least expensive (usually the smallest), because designs don't use much space and you are unlikely to fill a very large one.

If your machine isn't coming until March, it will likely be updated. They mark the version number on the box, so you'll know right away if you need an update. By March we will likely have another one.
