I recently bought an entire lot at an estate sale that included over 30 different memory cards. I thought it would say somewhere on the cards what machines they were compatible with but they don't and I can't find the info anywhere online. There are tons but to save time here are a few:
#40 Felix the cat
#19 Wild animal series
#7 Little Grey Rabbit
#119 Australian Floral Designs
#130 Alpine Floral Designs

And the list goes on. Does anybody know which machines these will work with without having to convert them or use a magic box etc. Or is there a list out there that anyone knows about? I want to pick up a used machine but want to make sure these cards will work first.
Thank you

129 and 130 are Janome SEW designs. They are very nice but you will have to convert them to JEF. I don't know about the others.

Brandy, Jacquie is right; the cards numbered with 3 digits are .sew designs for use in the now-retired MC9000. Some of those cards are available on CDs, with the designs converted to .jef. The cards themselves could be used on the now-retired MC10001 by means of a special card reader box. The cards numbered below 100 are also in .sew format and were made for the now-retired MC8000. Some of those designs are available on a CD, with the designs converted to .jef. Please let us know if this helps, Margrette in San Diego

They are all SEW files and are compatible with the 9000 and the 5700 if you have a reader writer box. the cards are out of date without the reader writer box.

Margrette: Do you know if there is a way to put the 8000 memory card designs into the Janome 11000? I have a cute card 19 with the wild animals from my Janome 8000, and no one can tell me how to sew them out on the 11000. The 11000 does not accomodate my 8000 Memory cards and I know that there was a CD with most of those designs but they did NOT include "card 19" (which did happen to be one of my very favorites) Now I cannot use it and I miss using it. It was so cute. I don't know of any place to acquire the card 19 wild animals in jef format or any other format. Do you know how I can get them into my computer to put onto a usb stick or other means...to sew them on the 11000??? Thanks, Sandrea

Sandrea, I purchased a MC9000 for my daughter with about 6 memory cards, thinking that we could convert them somehow. I had the machine for 6 years and never did figure it out. I think you out of luck. You should be able to find similar designs from embroidery library or some other website. There are so many designs out there that you should be able to find something else that you like equally well.

Oh, I remembered that Janome at one time would convert the designs for you but you needed to send your card in and pay a few dollars, probably for mailing and a CD and would send them back to you. I'd do a "Contact Jan" and see what she says.

Thanks Cheryl. Appreciate the reply. I guess I will contact Jan and see what she can tell me. Unfortunately I have possibly hundreds of African Animal designs from every company you can think of, but have never been able to find anything comparable to the Card 19 animals. If you aren't familiar with 19, it is just the cutest thing. All the animals are "cross eyed". ha ha. They aren't like real life animals...they are sort of like a cartoon type animal...but the eyes on them are so cute and irresistable. Just can't find anything in any of my animal designs to come even close the the card 19 collection. Thanks anyway Cheryl. I will check it out with Jan. Sandrea

I know the frustration of finding a card you have to have and then finding out it is a problem to coy it. However with the #19 Wild Animals card, I have finally been able to get it transferred to a cd. If this helps anyone please send me a message.

I know this is a really old post but I found it when I was looking for some help.

Thanks.

You do not need a reader-writer box for the cards in a 9000 if they are the regular SEW designs for the 9000. The card goes straight into the right side of the 9000. I kept my 9000 and still use it when I want to do smaller designs as I was given a lot of SEW cards.

Didn't Janome put a lot of the 8000 designs on a CD that they furnished with an upgraded machine?

Yes they did. I got this CD when I bought my 10000. There were a few hundred designs. I was quite happy about getting all these designs. But they were really small and most were not the least bit interesting. I recall signs of the Zodiac, a soccer ball, a duck.. many had only one colour. I did not even bother to put them on a flash card to use in the 10000. I think I used only one or two.

The designs you are referring to are all in the SEW format. The size is approx 4x4. Unless you have software that can read these designs and have a method of transfer to either a USB or flash memory card from the computer software to the method of transfer there is no way for your machine to use these . I have them on a CD on backup and are able to do that, however I agree with Jacquie, there are not the greatest and very dense.

You may have spent a lot of money on these cards for the 8000, but if you have upgraded to a machine that sews larger designs forget about your old ones. You can find all kinds of designs that are probably nicer and a bit bigger for your 11000. Embroidery Library have thousands of designs and they put them on sale very often for $1 - $1.25. Their designs are good quality, better than the ones from years ago. So many more good digitizers out there now than there were 30 years ago in the beginning of home machine embroidery.

Just got back in town and checked in. In all that pile of designs for 8000 are actually some nice ones. No control of them of course, one had to figure little things out. They for sure are nothing like I'm doing now. The lesser stitch count was nice, of the designs and size were good. In comparison, they are nothing like what I have now with 11000. I just had a like of them. Especially the little grey Rabbits and Cartoon Wild Animal. I was surprised at how few were on each card vs. how much I paid for them in comparison today. Just hated to let go. My 8000 is on it's death bed and won't last much longer. I have not turned it on in years. I had thought to offer it so some one for parts if that is done. I put a lot of miles on it.

I marvel at how much some of you know. I spend a lot of time doing the "figure it out". We have no dealers within a 3 hour drive, can't keep one when they do open. Time to comb the web is limited.

Thank you much.
