Does anyone have a Brother PE-SCAN Embroidery Scanner and if so could you give me some information on it.. Is this like a reader writer box or different.Also would this work with a brother PE-150?

I have a 150 and the PE Scan. Yes they are compatible. The PE actually scans a design and converts it. Takes a bit of practice to get used to it. I used it for solid color designs....

Hi, i have a brother super galaxie II sewing machine. It says that a pe-scan works with this, but only the pe-scan II is available now.
I need to know what the difference is between the two and whether I can safely buy a II.
If any one had one for sale with Card?

Ninasten--I do have the PE Scanner II with manual & 2 cards-for sale--but you are so far away! I am in U.S. and the shipping would be so high. Have you done an ebay search?

redpenny--with the scanner, you draw your own images, or copy from children's coloring books, etc. You scan the drawing once for solid stitching, or you fill in portions of the drawing with marker and scan again. Each scan adds another ''layer'' of embroidery. Finally, you save the design to card. The scanner also has fonts built in. I have found no way to transfer from card to computer--not smart enough to figure that out! And yes, the card works with my Brother pe200, as well as my 2003D ULT. As I understand the Brother machines, they will read older cards/formats without difficulty. I don't have talent or patience, so I have the PE Design software. I hope this little bit of info answers your question.

Hi dancingirl, I saw your comment about the cord for your pe design next and was wonder7ng where you found the cord, if it worked and how many pins does it have to be? I am thinking about buying one like yours from ebay but dont want to spend the money of it wont work or I cant find the right cable.

Tina, you need to know before buying that the PE v4 will only install in XP or earlier systems, and in Vista or Win7 with 32bit processor. The newer OS's (Win8-9) and most newer computers have 64bit processor. It's a bummer for all of us who pd hundreds and thousands--we now have to buy software for the newer systems. I have my v4, also v2, v1, and of course my v5 which is still working on 2 old laptops.

Well that sucks, my computer is windows 7 64 bit. I cant afford the newer stuff so I guess I will have to keep relying on buying patterns from other people. Thank you for letting me know.

miss Tina, I'm sorry. I made a comment re PE Design version 4 cord--and what I said above holds true for the older versions. I notice now that you asked about PE Next in your post. I believe Next might work for can look up the requirements for installing on your computer. And if you have Win7-professional, you can D/L WinXP and install in your computer in virtual mode. So you can run older software in XP without going on line. You can use the 7 side for your internet stuff.

Dancingirl_gw. Can you help i have the exaxt same pe_design as you have on one of your walls.,..I see you found a cord that would fit ....i did find a place on my computer that it plugs into. But that usb cord you found for it would be so much better! I have to buy a external. Floppy DISKETTE drive for it (i just bought off ebay yesterday for 70.00) Now i have to buy everything for it to work....

Ok two questions.

Whats the name of the. Usb cord you found for it?....does Windows 2007 work with it ...mine is a 1.1 version

It looks the exactly the same as mine!

Also the same person is Selling the Deco scanII. But it has the same kind of plugs to go with it....but im not sure what it does but im guessing i can scan any image i want ...i think. That souns so neat!.....

I hope you still come here and read thease things. Your the first person that seems to know about this stuff

Thank you, HARMONY

I mailed you Re the cord and scanner, did you ck your spam folder? Yes, the Bernina scanner and Bro scanner are about the same. This is older software from when you could only buy designs on cards. It gave ability to make your own designs as has been explained. Any older cards will work in newer Brother machines...they made the machines to recognize older cards.

Harmony---I found a Deco scanner on ebay--it looks exactly like the PE Scanner. I must caution that this one for sale did not have a memory card included. The cards are specific to the scanner and early PE Design softwares. I recently saw a card on ebay that was priced at $75--more expensive than, for instance, the card that comes with PED Basic. The Basic writer/reader set can be bought for around $100---or less used. Be careful. Vendors don't tell you what you really need to know because in most cases, they got the item from somewhere and are not familiar with it. So study up before plunging in.
