Zcs100 reader writer software
Well... I have an answer you will not like. Typically devices like this are difficult to find software for after you loose the media that came with it (often times not in the box/package). A simple web search did not return results, in situation like this you can nasally find results in a forum with the software link, however I was not. So our next option would be to get it from a company that sells it, but if you did not buy it from them they will to be helping you. This is mainly due to the fact the files are not online to download but only shipped with the product and in which case they ship you the media. So what company did you buy it from? That way we can press them directly for the media. I do not have the unit so I can't check the manufacture but even if we could its possible the company that made it would be inaccessible. Good luck

My Simplicity Quilters Classic Model SW240 seems to have lost its mind.
You can try a 'hard reboot' of the software by unplugging the machine while it is turned on, wait about a minute, then plug in and restart the machine. This is a way to make the software do a self-diagnostic check and possibly give you an error code or (best case scenario) cause the machine to start working properly again.
If this does not work you probably need an adjustment by a technician.

My Brother 8500 brakes the needle when embroidering...what it could be?
Suspect uneven feed of top thread.
Manual for reference if needed.
Please check the following;
- This machine has a horizontal spool. Try using a spool cap that is slightly larger than the spool. Verify spool is in proper orientation, and threaded per instruction. See page 19.
- Embroider foot "Q" is installed per manual instructions. See page 32-33.
- Feed dogs are down (supposed to happen when automatically table is installed but check and make sure).
There should be no looping of thread on bottom side. This would indicate top thread tension is too loose or uneven feed (spool cap and/or orientation). Suggest you preset tension prior to installing table using normal presser foot and single layer of same fabric and same thread. Select a straight short stitch (machine default) and tension 4. With a single layer of fabric, tension at 4 is likely high and you will see bottom thread loop on top side so slowly reduce tension until bottom thread no longer shows on top, Then switch to embroider setup and test run.
Comment below with results and I'll assist further if need be.
