Question Converting Embroidery Files from .sti to .DST

Hi,

I need help in converting Datastitch files (.sti) to .DST Before I changed to the Forte software, I copied the files to a disk in Datastitch and forgot to change the file extension to ".DST". Still a newbie after 5 years regarding formats of files. Can someone help me??? I no longer have the Datastitch software and I do not know anyone that does.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Default Re: Converting Embroidery Files

I have the Data Stitch program. The sti files are in a condensed format. Dst files are expanded. I would suggest you try to change the sti extension to cnd (melco) on a
separate disk, keeping the original sti files just in case. It will be time consuming doing one at a time but if these are files you need it will be worth it if it works. Can you load the sti files at all? I am pretty sure you can. All you need to do is highlight then save file giving it a new cnd extension. Try one design and see if that works. Make sure the sti disk is locked with the hole showing.

I tried to do as you suggested, but that did not work. When I opened the files the design was blown apart and caused an error message and shutdown the software.

Thank you for the suggestion.
