I bought a janome 300e .ive purchased designs and have downloaded to my computer. I've transferred them to a disk. . On the computer it says that the designs were transferred.

Check that the designs are not in a folder on the disk. Your sewing machine may need to open that folder before the designs can be found.

Also, check to make sure the OS software on your computer is compatible with your sewing machine. Some sewing machines use Windows 7 or even earlier versions, whereas most new computers now have Windows 8 or 10.

I recently bought a new computer ans tryed load my software to my emtions embrodiery machine and it will not load

It is likely the software you have is not supported by the computers operating system, this is true of MS Windows 7 and up operating systems. You likely have software for the older XP system.

I have PC-Desgner software for Windows used on Wnd-XP. Now my new computer has Wind-8 and my PCDesigner does not work on such OS. Where can I find this software to run on my new computer. Leila...

LOL Good luck. I think the best--least expensive thing you can do is go buy a Pawnshop computer with WinXP on it and use it exclusively for this purpose

My Singer Futura CE100 software will not work on my new computer with Windows 8. Singer does not have update yet. Any ideas on how I can get it to work. Thanks

My suggestion for now, have the earlier window version that you have been using for your CE100 also installed in your new computer.

Singer 250 can not run 86 on 64 platform

There is an update to give an x64 driver for the Singer CE-250 that will let you run on an x64. With the sewing machine not connected to the computer, install the software that came with the machine. Click OK at all of the "cannot run x86 build on a 64-bit OS" messages. When it is done, install the software from . (The second one is for XP, Vista, and Win7 versions.) Accept the unverified driver (install anyway). After this completes, then connect the sewing machine to the USB port on the computer.

Similar patches exist for the CE-200.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the version number of your software. I know with Husqvarna Viking's 3D Embroidery, there are versions that can be upgraded to work with x64 and versions that are not patchable.

I bought a new computer with Windows 8 & now my dongle is not recognized, why?

I tried the Husqvarna Viking dongle drivers for 4D VIP Customizing software on a new Windows 8.1 system, but nothing worked. (It worked fine on my old Vista system). After a few weeks of frustration, I found this site :
I downloaded the Sentinel Driver v7.5.8 (they work for Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003/2008/2012/Vista & Windows 7&8 (32 bit and 64 bit)), installed it, restarted my computer, and everything worked like a charm.
Somebody should tell Husqvarna about those drivers...

My new computer has windows 8 and i use it for embroidery an my machine will not run on windows 8. it is a Viking ruby made by Husqvarna

You'll need to go to the Viking site and see if they have an update to the software. Otherwise you'll need to buy an older machine to use for the embroidery software.
