BERNINA & Windows® 10

PDC for artista 165 /170 / 180 / 185
 
The Personal Design Card for the artista 165 /170 / 180 / 185 can now only be read out and in via the appropriate embroidery computers (embroidery module). 
The reader/writer box provided for this purpose can no longer be used.

The Personal Design Card for the artista 200 / 730 can no longer be used directly with the USB 2.0 reader/writer box, since Win 10 no longer supports this reader/writer.
