Re: Using a USB extension cord

The official limit is set at 16 feet. However it won't hurt to try a longer cable. Just measure it out and get the shortest cable that will reach.

My machine is in another room. I see that extensions come as long as 25'. What cord should I buy? I'm pretty sure my cord is a 6'. I really miss using the cord instead of the flash drive.

Congrats!  I think you will love it.  The RE18 is my favorite hoop (15000 v.3...also love the 5x7 on my 11000 v.3.10).

Not silly at all. An extender typically extends out a shorter distance than a USB drive and it's flexible, so you have a bit of cable to absorb pushes and bumps. If you look into the USB port you'll see a white plastic bit that takes up about half of the space. The cable has a corresponding plastic bit, which ensures that the cable can only be plugged in one way. The actual contacts are bonded to that plastic piece. I had a customer who was complaining about the USB port not working. A glance inside the port revealed a tangle of thin metal pieces. The plastic piece had broken and the contacts peeled off. I had to order a new USB board, which thankfully is a separate part so the cost was much less. I have many times plugged in a USB device the wrong way, and the plastic pieces stop it from going in. If you get in a hurry and jam it quickly, damage could occur. By using an extension any damage happens in the extension (cheap), not the machine ($$$!). Back in our store mail order days, one of our more popular items was a 3" extension which we sold for connecting the USB dongle for the various versions of Digitizer. Those dongles were super precious, because they were not replaceable without a VERY compelling story.

Fairly new to this group and this is the first time I’ve heard about using an extender.   Not sure how it helps, doesn’t the extender also get plugged into the machine and therefore it to could be bumped?  Sorry if this is a silly question.

USB 1 is almost history. USB 2 is backward compatible and will work fine for your purpose. You want the overall length of cable from machine to computer to be 16 feet or less. So if you get a 3 foot extension you would want the main cabe to be no longer than 13 feet. Usually they run 6-10 feet, so that should be no problem.

USB 3 extenders would also work. This would appear to be a good choice for you: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1KINRO/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_HeIlCbG2HHHAP

It's a good idea to use an extender, because the inside of the USB port on the machines has a plastic bit that can be broken if a plugged-in USB drive gets bumped or whacked in the right way.

Interesting.  I just went and double checked and the only cord my 500E came with was the one that goes from the computer USB to the small square plug in on the machine.  It was still in original packaging.  But I have heard other stories of different countries getting some different accessories with their machines.

Good Morning Pixie

My 500E came with two assorted USB cords in the box here in Australia. One is USB both ends, the other is USB to  a computer port. 
Seems strange USA purchasers  did not get these.

Thanks Jim,

I was having difficulty finding shorter cards with Amazon’s search engine.  Have ordered several, one for each machine port.  I have always tried to be gentle when plugging in and removing USB drives and never had any trouble with my 350e, but there is always a first time.

Carole, 

I have multiple iPads and as long as you use your Apple Id to set up your new one, your existing apps like AcuDesign will load up on your new iPad.

Re: Downloading AcuDesign App

Jim Stutsman
 

Moving to a new iPad is pretty easy:
  1. Backup the old iPad, either to iCloud or iTunes on a computer.
  2. Enter your information on the new iPad, such as name, WiFi, etc. Make sure you use the same Apple ID on the new one that you had on the old one.
  3. When asked, choose to restore from a backup. Choose the most recent backup.
This will move all your stuff to the new iPad, as well as install all the apps that were on the old one.

NOTE - Using Settings -> iCloud you can choose to have your iPad backed up to iCloud automatically. Everyone should do this!

You'll need to update your machine to version 1.2. See this page:

So sorry! I had no idea there was a Janome contingent in Dubai. I will try to factor that in next time.

Found the site and the apps, but asked a question re individual pricing in the support box, but got response that "couldn't execute".  Didn't see individual prices for Foot Book and Quilt in Hoop apps.
