creative 2170/2144 machine update


Latest version: creative update version 01.05.07

Before upgrading: If you have .ESQ files, they need to be converted to .EMB files. Follow the instructions below:

If you have saved any .ESQ files that include the Pouty alphabet or embroidery files from the palette folder, please save these files as .EMB files before you update your creative 2170/2144/2140. The .ESQ file will no longer be valid after the update.

To save the file as an .EMB file, open the .ESQ file in the embroidery screen. Touch the Save icon, Save As. Delete “new” from the file name. Type up to 8 characters. This will become the new filename. In the bottom right corner there is an icon that looks like a TV screen. Touch this icon. It will change the file extension to .EMB. Touch OK to save the embroidery file. Make sure the name in the bottom left part of the screen reflects the changes you made.

After you have updated your creative 2170/2144/2140, you may try to choose an invalid .ESQ file. If you choose one of these files, you will get an error message “Cannot find file …”. To escape from this message, touch the esc icon the number of embroideries you have on the screen. (If you had written “HELLO”, you would need to touch the esc icon 5 times.)

If you wish, you can move these new .EMB files to your computer with the file assistant. This will give you more room in your machine memory.
