jANOME CARDS

My son has just upgraded my computer and I see I have a new slot for cards,
SD, SM, CF and MS. If I was to buy a Janome machine would I be able to save
directly onto these cards to put in the sewing machine? I would never have
sewing machine and computer is same part of house and hate the limitation on
boxes.
I have Brother V5 at present and do not want to have to buy Janome software.
Would embird or buzztools convert to Janome format whatever it is. How much
can I get on these cards for machine, more than 4 mb or 1.44 for floppy on
Brother i.e. is there a limit to what machine can read both in terms of size
of design and capacity. Sorry to ask but Janome in the UK useless at
asnwering questions.

The 10000/10001 has a diferernt type of card than the 5700,9000 etc... So... depends on which Janome you are thinking of getting.

The newer Janome machines will take a standard PCMCIA card, or a Compact Flash card with a PCMCIA adaptor. You would be able to write designs to the CF card with your computer. This arrangement would also let you save to the card with a standard laptop PCMCIA slot.
With the current software on the MC10001, you can store and access 1200 designs on a single CF card. With the two other machines, I believe you are limited to 100 designs on the card.
Embird does convert designs to the Janome ".jef" format. I don't know if Buzztools does that. Does Brother offer an inexpensive upgrade to a newer version of their software that would handle (write designs to) the Janome format? If so, that would probably be a better route to go than to create designs in one format and convert them.

Thanks for your very detailed reply. I would be looking at the Janome 10,000 to replace my Brother 3,000 so the compact flash card would be used for that. I am not sure about the adaptor if it is Janome supply only. Brother software only saves to the various versions of pe design and I would never envisage Brother making anything compatible with Janome products. They all like to stick rigidly to their own. Liz

Looking at the 10,000 which has come up in a couple of places secondhand. I wondered why they were selling it, and I expect its like Brother warranty not transferable to second owner. I am do not really want to go back to a card reader writer box. Liz

You should be able to buy the PCMCIA adaptor at any computer supply store, or camera store that deals with digital photography. I believe the one we use carries a Kodak brand. We have successfully used Sandisk, Kodak and HP compact flash cards in the MC10000.
Well, some companies apparently take the approach that they'd like you to use their software no matter which machine you have. Their software will create designs in a number of formats. I have read that the Brother PES format is one of the better ones to translate into other formats, so perhaps a program like Embird would be the best way for you to go.

I just looked and you're right. The Brotehr PE5 software only does the Brother format (PES or PEC, can't remember). Oddly, the Janome Digitzer 10000 software does Janome/Elan/Kenmore, Brother/BabyLock, Pfaff, Husqvara/Viking, and Singer (outputs to them). The Bernina isn't listed though.
However, the PE5 software runs faster than the Janome Digitizer 10000 does. It may have something to do with the image quality.

Thanks. I am not really looking to change from the Brother software. The only software I am aware of to convert TO .art (Bernina) format is the Bernina software. Pec is the card format for Brother. Pes and Hus are very similar and most downloads are in hus format as it carried less detailed information I believe. Would like to know the configuration of the Brother blank card. Liz
