Replace Floppy to USB Emulator for Embroidery Machine : The Advantages

There are many advantages replace Floopy to USB Emulator for your Embroidery Machine.

The USB Floppy Emulator replaces the old diskette entirely. The old floppy disk drive is replaced 1:1. USB stick components have long life spans and high capacities. The new USB floppy Emulator and USB stick components are practically immune to impacts from magnetic fields, dust or shock, use of them avoids loss of data due to old floppy disks. The contents on 100 floppies can easily be placed on one single USB Stick. Most USB floppy for embroidery machine supports up to 100 disks per USB stick drive. The virtual floppy disks can be easily selected via the up-/down-buttons of the usb emulator, and the LED display shows which disc is currently loaded. That all saves a lot of time and costs.

Does it have a separate 4-pin power connector? Please also note where PIN #1 is on the floppy drive; a red stripe on the ribbon may be a hint.

Because compatibility is not 100%. Make sure you have at least two different USB sticks,  It is helpful if the USB sticks are 2GB or less and choose FAT or USB FAT16 format. Do not choose FAT32. It's not a requirement if you have Windows 7 or special usb  stick format program.
