      Hi Anjana,

      The 230E makes folders on the USB once you put it into the machine and format the stick in the SET menu. You will save the jef format design INSIDE the inner of the 2 folders that have been created. Then open the folders and the design. If you still don’t follow after reading your Instruction manual, you should make an appointment with your Janome dealer and have them explain to you the process of saving and opening designs. And yes, .jef format is the only format that the 230E reads.

    Hi Liz, do you know if my 230e machine will work if I download designs from the internet onto my Samsung Galaxy notebook then connect direct to my machine. Regards Lyn

      Hi Lyn,

      Unfortunately I am not familiar with the Samsung equipment you refer you. is it a PC? or a tablet? The 230E is NOT a wifi compatible machine so you would have to have the ability to put a USB stick into your Samsung notebook in order to save designs for use at the 230E. But please feel free to call Technical Support on 1-800-0183 Ext 775 for further assistance.

      You may embroidery any designs (not just the built -in designs) provided they are in the correct size and format for the embroidery machine.

      Hi
      It sounds like you are asking about digitizing an embroidery design (eg for a logo). I am sorry but we are not able to address a comprehensive topic like this on our janomeife forum. Please consult your local Janome dealer to assiSt you with classes on how to digitize embroidery designs.
