IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE VIKANT CORPORATION
The Ultimate box writes to Ultimate cards only and does not write to Pfaff Creative blank card or any other cards.
However, the Ultimate box reads most cards, depending on the memory chips inside used at the time of manufacturing.
The Ultimate Card III is needed for Pfaff machine.
Bernina embroidery machines may be programmed with different versions of Firmware. Some versions of this Firmware may interfere with the data written to the Ultimate card. If the machine does not read designs on the card:
1. Re-write the card in the Ultimate box.
2. Slide the Write Protect switch on the card to “ON” and put it into the embroidery machine.
3. Turn Write Protect “OFF” before writing new designs to the card.
The procedure above has been tested on Deco 330/340 and older Artista 180/165 machines.
