Hi, Well, I am a confused again. I have the 12,000. But, I have
never had Janome before. All my designs, are in the pes or vip
format. I know I have to convert them over to the jef format. But,
there is more to it, then that. My problem is, I have the Viking 3D
software. And there is a special way to write the files, to the
stick, and I can't get it to work. Does anyone, have the Viking
software, be able to help me with this problem.
Thank you
Maureen

Hi There

I don't have the Janome 12K but have had numerous previous models..... I assume you are able to convert the designs to .jef - with previous models (and my current 350E), you turn the machine on, insert the USB stick into the slot on the machine - there will be symbols on the screen telling you not to turn the machine off nor remove the stick.... this disappears in a few seconds.... and you can then remove the stick.

The machine has created folders on the stick - some for embroidery (using starting Emb) and some for ordinary sewing settings you want to save (a line of decoratives for instance).... within the emb folders there may be subfolders called MyDesigns (this is on my 350E) and that is where you save your designs converted to jef.....

Wilcom Truesizer will convert to .jef if you do not have a programme to do that - it is free.....

Since you have the 3D software you should be able to convert your designs to the JEF format used by Janome machines. Once you have a design in JEF format you can get it in your USB stick by following these steps:

1. Insert the stick in the machine and turn the machine on, if necessary.

2. When the "DO NOT" symbols disappear from the screen, remove the stick.

3. Plug the stick into your computer. Open it from "My Computer" unless it opens automatically.

4. Find the EMB folder and open it.

5. There will be a single folder in EMB, called EmbF. You can use that folder, or you can create more of your own. I like to use folders to classify designs, such as "Birds", "Flowers", etc.

6. Open the EmbF folder, or one you have created, and drag your JEF files into it.

7. When all files are in the stick, click the "Safe Removal of Hardware" icon and ask to remove the drive. Usually it's drive E, but it could be F or G, depending on what other drives you have.

8. Put the stick in the machine. Open designs by following the steps on page 132 of the instruction book.

Thank you Jim
Thank you Bryden
 
Things are making more sense. And I was able to get one design to the stick, and I am stitching it on my machine right now. My first one. wow.
 
I have been ignoreing the laundry, the housework, the grocery shopping, and even my
bird, which he is telling me about, right now. So I feel like I have accomplished something today. With your help, of course. Again, Thank you.
