There are two ways to put designs on a USB flash drive. You can plug it into your computer directly, in a USB port, or you can plug it into the machine and use a cable or WiFi to send the design from your computer to the USB. Horizon Link Suite will use either one. The File Manager in the EmbLink Tool may be what you are using. When you send a design to the USB drive, that's what it does. It does not open the design for stitching. You need to open the design on the USB drive using the Open File button at the bottom of the machine screen. This can lead to some confusion because of how the machine uses this function.
Hi Jim, Thanks so much for the quick reply and I sure will try to send relevant messages together. as you said. It must be so frustrating for you with un-related messages strung together ! I tried to send a message directly to you earlier, but it did not go through, so I needed some way to ask yo a question... sorry for bunching unlike messages together. Thanks again !
This is how I have been importing designs to a USB. First I select my format , JEF for Janome, then download one of them them to my computer, then I go to my Downloads to find that design number & physically drag & drop into the USB that has been formatted & in my computer. I only do one design at a time. I do not know what number of GB USB to buy for the Janome 3.0 . Perhaps I should stay using 2-8 GB .. Will 16 GB work ?.
Large USB drives will work, it just takes longer for the machine to process them. Drag & drop onto the USB drive will work ONLY if you drop it in a folder which is inside the EMB folder on the USB. Until you are used to how it works I would suggest you always drop your designs into the EmbF folder inside the EMB folder.
I just had my machine updated..now that shop has just closed in Taylors ,SC
Now several dumb questions.. Do I need to have the cable plugged into the Janome when I have a USB stick in which I'm trying to send designs to ? I keep re-reading that part...
No. The cable needs to be plugged in ONLY when you are using it to send designs.
I'm note sure I use EMBLink . ...Can you tell me what that is ?
The EmbLink Tool is the first choice on the Horizon Link Suite menu.
I have all the Janome Apps on my i pad I was looking today for my original CD that came with my machine, can't find it ! . Is it necessary if I buy another computer or i pad.?
Yes, you will need it if you ever have to reinstall Horizon Link Suite. Never needed for iPad.
It is impossible to ever contact Janome but I do have my machine registered with the serial number ., so I really appreciate your help on matters that seem so important to sewing with confidence.I hope to get there. I did receive Honorable Mention this Spring on my first ever quilt entry..
