    You might have to unzip them once they're downloaded. As for finding them, when you download them, note what directory they're being downloaded to. Hope that helps.

    I use winzip. It unzips them. Also when you purchase the designs from Embroidery Library, you can have them emailed unzipped. I only order from a few companys and EL is one of my favorites. I also have software. 4D software.

    You might have the wrong embroidery file type for your machine. I think Brother usually uses .pes files. You can download a temporary copy of Embird for free(a wonderful embroidery program) to convert the file type if that is the issue at www.embird.com.

    You can pm me if you need more help.

    I could never open files that I had sent to my email. Even after downloading winzip( free).Embrodery Library had a page giving downloading direction. Make sure you are getting right file type, have winzip, and embroidery software. I download mine to MY Documents, embroidery file.therer they go on USB to my machine.

    I use Winzip to unzip mine. No other special embroidery programs. The problem I first had with my machine not reading them was the wrong USB drive stick. My brother only takes certain sticks(Innovis 1200D). I had to go the brother website and print off the list of compatible sticks after that no problem at all. I also created special folders to keep track of the companys that I frequently buy from.
