I have a 500e and can use a hoop as large as 9" x 13". There are some large designs that wont fit in the 7.9"x 11" hoop - how can I adjust so the larger hoop is accepted?

Hi, Mary. I'm sorry but I don't think that is possible. My understanding is that the 500E's maximum stitching capability is 7.9" x 11". Even if you have a 9" x 13" hoop, I don't think you can stitch larger designs. Sorry about that.

I am using digitizer v5.5 with the janome 500E. I have just started to learn so don't have much experience Sometimes when I have sent a design to the machine it does not appear in the files on the machine. I haven't done anything different to usual and the last time it happened it was actually an inbuilt design in the software. If I then try again I get a message saying I can't send it because a file is already being uploaded. Any ideas why this happens? And is there any way I can clear the first attempt and start again. I couldn't get past this . ( I haven't had chance to use the machine since...I am a library assistant and this our exciting newly aquired machine in our 'creator space'!!)

Thank you

Hi Hazel,

I'm most familiar with the Embrilliance digitizing software, and haven't used Digitizer 5.5 at all. I poked the Internet to see what I could find out though.

I read that On Windows® 7 or later, you must send designs one at a time when using a USB-RS-232C Conversion Adapter. An error is displayed when trying to send multiple designs at the same time.

This sounds like your issue, even though what you describe is sending one design at a time. Apparently it just seems that a design gets "stuck" and neither transfers nor lets you send the next design. One piece of advice I found was to fix the USB port settings. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find what the correct settings would need to be; if that is specific to Digitizer, or if general computer USB port settings would suffice. I also have not been able to find any way to "clear" previous attempts.

There is an alternate way to get designs to the machine, through a USB stick. Do you have that as an option? The forum at this address: https://tv-sewingcenter.com/janome/getting-that-em... has good instructions for doing that.

Hi Kirsten


thanks for your reply.

I too have not found a way to 'clear' or delete previous attempts. Most frustrating! I will need to ask someone about USB port settings cos I don't know ANYTHING about that.

Yes I probly can get designs sent through a USB . It's just if I can get this problem solved it is MUCH easier this way....cut's out the middleman!

If there is a Janome dealer you can make contact with, they are your best bet. I have one here, and I can ask them, however they only just recently started carrying the machines. It will also help if you can give me the exact wording of the error message that you get when you try to transfer a file, please?

I have a new Janome 500E but I am having trouble getting my computer to talk to the embroidery machine. I've tried to transfer designs using a USB drive and also direct connect. (My local quilt store that sells Janomes does not have anyone who can give me a few lessons, even though I bought it from them).

Have you saved your embroidery in an embf file on your desktop. If not create the embf file...a janome file and an emb file . Then after opening your embroidery manager program click on Design. It will open to a file screen.

Choose desktop and then open your embf file. Click on the design. The machine will take you back to the home page. Click on Write a Design. Again a page will open.

1. Click on the sewing machine. At the bottom click on the file with the arrow pointing in

2. Rename the file on the left side.

3. Click on the red arrow to send.

Pls be sure to turn on your e350 before connecting to the computer.

Good luck...hope this helps.

Anita D was referring to her new 500e machine, but I see you reference 350e. Is one to assume that anything that can be done with the 350e can also be done likewise with the 500e?

Hi, Laura. If Marjorie receives these messages, perhaps she can chime in. However, from what I can see, the 350e and 500e appear to have different interfaces. My guess is that they have some similar capabilities, but I wouldn't assume that they have identical processes, since the 500e has a higher price point and thus a more hightech display screen, for starters.

ANITA I am having the same difficulty. Totally frustrated right now. Did you figure it out?

Shelia,

I reformated my thumb drive and I don't have any more problems. Sometimes the enternal drive will get it's memory messed up. Try my suggestion and let me know if it works for you.

I have a new Janome 500E and want to find some designs to buy which are suitable. Loving the machine.

I also have the Janine 500E Machine. There are many companies that offer designs to buy. Usually I like to try a free design first before I buy one from a company. Once the free design did not turn out that great so I just don’t buy from that company. When you register with a company they will ask you what machine you have and if you order a design that does not fit your hoops the site will tell you that before you buy.

Hi, Christine. Congratulations on your new machine! The good news is there are many designs that will work with your machine. You should be able to download designs from sites like ours in the JEF format and transfer them to your machine via USB flash drive or direct connect (USB cable). My notes say that your maximum embroidery area is 7.9" x 11", which is a roomy embroidery area. If you want to search for designs that fit within that area at Embroidery.com, you can select your maximum sewing size and the JEF format from our Advanced Search page and get lots of results:

Please let me know if you have any questions on any of that.

I'm glad to hear how much you're enjoying your machine, Colleen. It can be therapeutic, can't it? I'm so sorry to hear about the cancer and send you best wishes with your fight.
