This is not really something you can do yourself (been there, tried that!). The machine has to be almost completely disassembled to get to the timing mechanism. Trust me, it's worth the 30.00 to have it timed.
I think http://www.allbrands.com has a generic timing explaination for sewing machines (use the drop in bobbin one)...I found it easy to follow...but once I realized I had to unplug all the components for the computerized functions... I took it in to the dealer. If you contact Brother & your machine is under warranty, they will pay for the repair (they paid for my first two re-timings). Now I know you HAVE to use BOBBIN thread that is 60 WT only in the bobbin. You will continue to have problems if you don't. Also, this machine uses the class 15 bobbin, but make sure its model number SA156A, which is a hair taller than the SA156 bobbin..both are class 15, but the tiny difference is very important.

Welcome to Fix Ya!
Are you trying to transfer a built-in pattern from your machine to a USB flash drive? I'm not sure if built-in designs can be transferred in their original form. You might try editing the design a bit, save it to a memory space, then save it to the memory stick. If you have a manual, it should describe how to move designs from your embroidery machine to your computer, and vice versa.
If you are other readers have time to rate my answer, you'll help me become a better expert. If you can give me more specific information about what happens when you try to upload a design from your machine, and whether you have a manual feel free to leave a comment and I'll check back with you. Cheers, Ginny

Mine was doing the same thing, it wasn't threading right. The thing that pulls the thread down to the needle was out of place, and it wasn't wrapping the thread around the tension. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "although this was very helpful i decided to take it to a shop and let them sort it out thanks for the help"
Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.
Hope that helps :)
