I know its been awhile since my last blog post. However I did want to give you an update about the new Bernina 830 machine and USB thumbdrives. To my knowledge the BOM (bill of materials) for the 830 does not include a "official" usb stick.
After a bit of confusion, as I thought it did, a long distance customer of mine discovered that a 4 gb sandisk microcruzer usb stick works just fine in the new 830.
Its not the "official" word in regard to the manufacturer or the machine, but it does seem to work and work well as a "hot plug" option!
