SOURCE: embroidery stick

You need the USB Manager software to view the files. Have a look at all the software that were supplied with the machine. Load the embroidery software on your laptop and then open the USB manager.

When it opens it will show a light blue screen and grey icons to the left. Click in "disk", then click on "read disk" and you should be able to see your designs. The grey icons will turn orange were designs are stored, and the grey ones indicate empty space for more designs.

Enjoy your fantastic machine

SOURCE: manual from brother listed sewing machine

I believe these are the UL code and serial number. If there is a display band of decorative stitches on the front of your machine look on the bottom right of that panel. If the number there is a VX-920 there is no manual available for it BUT you can use the manual from the VX 970 which IS available. Do a search for that model manual in Spanish and you should find one.

SOURCE: USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash

I have a Designer I USB that suddenly started not reading the usb stick that came with the machine. I was terrified that my machine was going bad, but I always start with the cheapest solution first. I bought a new usb stick, loaded the designs from the old one into my software then loaded everything on the new usb stick. My machine reads it every time so far. I replaced the usb stick about 3 months ago and have not had another problem since. I don't know if this is your problem, but usb sticks can go bad and since they are so cheap, I would try this first.

My brother pe 770 will not read my usb drive

Just a random thought - I have noticed 64 Bit software doesn't read 32 Bit software and perhaps vice-versa. Perhaps your usb drive has a format or type that isn't compatible with the sewing machine.

My Brother PE770 won't read my USB

USB thumb drives can begin to have problems with their formatting over time. Try taking off all your files and formatting it with a PC. I have a Mac and sometimes devices do not like the USB drive because the Mac has place some 'hidden' files on it. Your software may ask if you want any files erased on the thumb drive before it write the new files on it. Answer yes which will reformat the USB drive.

Do I need to oil a Brothers PS 3700?

You got it... We are not allowed to do this function much anymore. I believe this is because of the computerized machines... they are DC (direct current...aka DEATH CURRENT) machines so they won't take chances with our safety. The only area where you MIGHT be able to oil is under the bobbin in the carrier there might be a little white wick. 1 (ONE) drop only there, if your machine has one. If not.. annual servicing is the way to go.

Needle won"t stay threaded

that use to happen to me on my sewing machines, I would rethread the machine to make sure the thread is not caught on anything like the thread spool, or around anyone of the thread guides

also for both top & bottom threads, I keep a thread tail of 3 to 6 inches & before I start sewing I pull the thread behind the needle to the back of the machine & the I put the fabric under the foot & start sewing & now I don't have that problem anymore

Brother LS2125 sewing machine won't run. Light comes on but machine won't run

What stitch pattern do you have it set for? Are you #6 patterns? Not the buttonhole one? You really should read your manual for all of the tips and it will answer what type of needles, stitches for different sewing situations. If, you have anymore questions, email me at, my granddaughter has this same machine and loves it. I will be happy to help you.

Have a se270d and just purchased ped basic. Put designs on card and put card in machine, but it won"t read the card at all. No error message or anything, but it does recognize there is a card present....

Check the design size and format.

The 270 is limited to a 4 x 4 hoop and the design must fit inside this measurement without the foot hitting the hoop.

The format must be pes
