With the best of intentions last night, I set up my sewing machine and the laptop so they could talk to each other via the interface cable. So far so good, all set up. Went to plug the cable into the laptop...... big problem!!
This is a fairly new laptop, and I had not used it with the sewing machine before. This laptop does not have a serial port! As you can see from the photo, so no production last night...or tonight for that matter. A "plug" is on order that will connect to the USB port......only hope it works when it arrives.
Otherwise I will have to find an old - slow laptop with a serial port. Oh the wonders of technology. You either love it or hate it.
