My 730 Artista will not read the design on my USB stick. It tells me my machine has nearly reached it's limit but I have deleted most of designs. What do I need to do?

Hi Bonnie,

An out of memory error on this model may indicate a variety of problems. Below are some common reasons behind this message (some of these may apply to you, some not):

Most likely the problem is being caused by the design you are trying to load, or a design that was previously loaded into the machine. The “offending” design (for lack of a better term) is in some way corrupt and will then proceed to eat up all the memory in the machine and you will get constant errors. Delete all motifs in the My Designs folder as well as the Motifs (Butterfly) folder on the 200/730. Restart the machine and try to load the new design again.

If you are using BERNINA software to create the design, and the picture used to create the design was not removed before sending the design to the artista, it becomes part of the .ART file and can overload the memory capacity of the machine. Always remove the picture before transferring a design to the embroidery machine.

Always save the design as .ART version 4 before sending the design to the machine. Your machine operates on version 4.xx firmware and cannot recognize version 5 or version 6 .ART formats.

Although the design is under the 52,000 stitch size, the design could have an excessive number of objects. This is especially true of lace designs. You can check the number of objects in a design by traveling the object in the software. Some designs sent to BERNINA have had in excess of 30,000 objects. The stitch count of the design is often under 40,000 but the machine rejects the design because of the excessive object count. Correct this problem by saving the design as a stitch file (.PES or .HUS) and closing the design. Select File > Open. Changes the Files of type to the stitch file format used to save the design. Select but DO NOT OPEN the design. Select the Options button and click on the leave as stitches option. Open the design. The software will not convert the design to objects. Send the design to the machine.

It could also be that the design needs to be ungrouped. Also, if the design has lettering, select the lettering and use the break apart tool.

I get the notice that says my 200 is full but there is nothing showing ! For some reason my designs in the machine disappeared after I had it serviced and now the teck does not work for Bernina . I did call him and he said he was going to send me some to replace them but he did not. So now it says the machine memory is full and their are no pictures and there are no designs showing. I am having an awful time using this modual.

I've got a 200E. Was embroidering fine last time I used it, but, I had not purchased/downloaded a file in a while. I'm trying to finish off a beautiful Christmas quilt. Pls help me if you can. I have no Artista software on my computer. I have no designs on my machine except the ones that came with it. The motif I purchased was successfully downloaded to the hard drive of my computer. I've tried .art, .xxx, .PEC, and .exp to no avail. I've tried 2 DIFFERENT SanDisk, both very small capacity, and otherwise empty. Formatted both prior to download the designs.  The machine will only recognize one one of the two thumb drives. The message I get is "Pls save your current motif (did that). Your embroidery Computer memory has nearly reached its limit. Switch your embroidery computer off and on again to continue (did that)." Tried unplugging the embroidery unit. Tried turning the entire machine on and off. Nothing is working!! Very frustrated. Judging by the years ago others have posted this same problem, it looks like this has been going on for quite a while.
