It should be fine however where you only have 4gb of ram your software may take time to open.  Be sure to keep the laptop just for your sewing. Most computers are 64gb and have 8gb of ram so yours may be slow, but it should work.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Windows 10 S

I have a Samsung computer. Would like to switch all my embroidery designs, to a laptop. I bought one today.
It has 4gb ram, 32 gb. But it has Windows 10 S.  Can this be used with my embroidery designs, 
and my 15000?   Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank You
Maureen

I usually recommend on finding out what you need before you buy the computer, but in this case I think you’ll be OK. It’s no powerhouse, but it should be fine with your Janome software.

Re: JEF + ?

Jim Stutsman
 

The JEF+ format originated with the Memory Craft 11000. As the plus suggests, it was an extension to the JEF format. Janome's intent was to use JEF+ only for files saved from the machine itself. The extra data was to be used so you could edit a design, save it, then open it later and change the edits. Unfortunately they never shared anything about the format with anyone outside the company, so third-party companies like Embird had to reverse-engineer the format. They mistakenly believed that the JEF+ format was required for designs that used the then-new hoops larger than 5 x 7. Because they had to guess what the new fields in the JEF+ format were used for, the early conversions were hit and miss. Janome also used the JEF+ format to embed information for AcuFil quilting. With the 12000 and later models they switched to yet another format, JPX. Like JEF+, JPX is used for designs stored from the machine to USB, and also for AcuFil. The later versions of Janome's Digitizer also use JPX as the default export format. JPX has provision for storing an image that can be displayed on the machine screen behind the design. It's an interesting feature, but seldom used.

JEF + ?

Joyce Daniel
 

I was cleaning out/deleting some embroidery files and noticed several had a JEF + format. I have several Janome machines but all use the JEF format. What machines use this and why would Janome come up with a different format for some of it's machines? Inquiring minds really want to know.

I gave it a little nudge but there’s not much flex in it. I’ll see if that helps. Thank you for the helpful photos. 

Re: 15000 Thread Coming out of the Take-up Lever

Interesting, wonder what they did and why it would start up again? I’m going to check with the store’s tech to see if it’s something I can adjust without having to bring it in to them.
Hope your’s gets fixed soon too. 

Thanks,

I had this problem when I first bought my machine (about 5 years ago now) and opened the cover to watch what was happening.  Finally, I pressed the shiny tab in ever so gently and the problem went away for me.  It's the tab you see that is secured by a screw and under the bar-like thing.  Hopefully the photo will make it clear as I have circled the piece but it looks very large so this may not work.  If not I can email the photo to those who want it.

I had the same issue with my 12000 when I first got it and there is an adjustment the mechanic can do to correct it
 Be sure with your 15000 that you are clearly making sure your thread in both top and bobbin are in the tensions correctly. Do you use a thread stand? That can help give your top thread a little longer path so it stays a little tighter and remember to use your yellow dot bobbin case for embroidery.

I have had numerous problems with the thread coming out of the take up leaver, even using Jim’s method doesn’t always help. When I took it for a service in January the mechanic said he had done something to help with the problem ( I don’t know what). It did help for a while but recently it has started to happen again regularly.

I do use the looping technique that Jim Stutsman recommends and it happens less often but enough to be annoying.
So I was curious if this could be related to stitching speed thing or just a quirk of the 15000.

Re: Horizon Link for 12000

The CD ROM format has not changed, though it's now about as dated as floppy disk. Your installation CD may be scratched, or the drive may have dust embedded in it, especially if it is seldom used. It's questionable whether Janome could/would provide a replacement, mainly because they may not have one. Before going to their Tech Support you should at least try to read it on another computer. If you can, just copy the entire content of the CD onto a USB drive and install from that.

Horizon Link for 12000

Lisa Powell
 

i bought my 12000 5 years ago, and never set up my Horizon Link. Now I’ve decided it might be kind of fun (I’m always late to the party). So I successfully did the update on my 12000 first, then tried to put the Horizon Link software on my laptop (with Windows 10) where all my designs are. My computer won’t read the disk! The disk says 2011 on it, so maybe it’s just too old? Am I out of luck or is there an updated version of Horizon Link that would work for both my computer and my 12000? I’d like nothing more than to upgrade to a 15000, but I just can’t afford that right now. 
I apologize if this has already been discussed.

It’s a standard DVD that should play in Windows Media Player. However if you are using an older CD player, it won’t read DVDs. There’s not a lot on the video, mostly things like threading & bobbin winding.
