It is important to ensure that the software you use is compatible with your machine in order to achieve the best results. You can refer to the user manual of your machine for information on compatible file formats and software.

Alternatively, you can also contact the manufacturer of your Toyota AD 860 machine or the PE Design Next software for further assistance and recommendations on the most suitable embroidery software to use with your machine.

I hope this helps, and happy embroidering!

Regarding the issue with the Toyota 860. You mentioned contacting the manufacturer. Since they don't make these machines anymore I don't think that's an option. I am also getting a read disc error message 04.

My question is is there a way to bypass the floppy disc and connect directly to the computer?
