Hi, New to your group, I thought you might be able to help me.
I have a Brother PE700II embroidery machine.  Love It!! I just
inherited a Berena Art. Quilter Edition with embro unit.  Can anyone
tell me what format it uses?  Can I download designs from computer, like
I do with my brother.  Have NO Manual
Thanks
Jackie

Yes, you can download design files.

I believe that the 170 is old enough that it doesn't recognize some
.ART designs created with later versions of Artista Software.

Unfortunately, very few of the readily available embroidery programs
can convert TO your new system's required .ART format. As far as I
know, the only programs that can convert your library of .pes files to
.art format are Bernina's own Artista and OESD's Sizing Magician.

Dear Jackie,
 You should be fine with ART 4 or earlier. I have some designs on my
website, www.cudigitizing.com , although these days I concentrate on
lessons for the Bernina software. You will need Bernina software to
convert any existing designs in other formats. I can't remember how the
designs are transfered to the 170, If you can send via cable you should
have got some software to operate this. If it only has cards you will need
a card reader writer box. Either way you need to check whether these are
compatable with your current computer system as the technology is quite
old now.

Only Bernina do .art format that is one of the reasons I sold my Artista 180
and the cost of the software
