AllBrands is a Brother Authorized Dealer and ASC Authorized Service Center for any repairs including warranty parts, electrical and labor. We give unlimited technical support by email, fax and phone. We service machines in our stores and/or refer to your nearest ASC Brother Authorized Factory Service and Warranty Centers nationwide. Mass merchants do not have tech service or repair departments for your equipment. They are unable to help you directly, only referring any operational, mechanical or electronic questions back to the manufacturer instead of taking care of the problems themselves. Manufacturers and customers should expect that any problems you have will be taken care of by the dealer or merchant who sold you the equipment, not by just referring your questions back to the manufacturer.

    icon How to transfer .pes files to embroidery machine.

    I was wondering if you could help me with an issue concerning my brother pe500 embroidery machine and my monogram wizard plus software? I make the image on my computer and then download it to my machine, the screen displays the message of "transporting from usb" and it shows in the memory but if the image isn't shown in the screen I can't find it. Does this make sense to you?

    It could be one of two things. Even though a design may be within the 4x4 parameter, it may have to many stitches for the machine memory.

    1) You may be sending a design that has more stitch data than the machine can accept approximately 50,000, or the design may be slightly too large for the 4x4 hoop and it looks like it is within the parameters, but really isn’t. The stitch data is in the message.

    2) Save your embroidery file in Tajima (.dst) format. The Brother PE500 will read .pes and.dst formats
