      these are "classic" cables,
      more cheaper to get them directly from the vendor http://www.ibab.nl/ibb/en/index.html
      or make yourself a "hacked" version as described here in forum

      PS i do not fined any $45.00 cables on the dknits site... ;(

      Hi R,
       
      nice to know that there are cheaper cables on the market.
      May you please also inform about the storage  and needed software? Where to find and what the approx. costs are?
       
      Your information is nice, but leaves lots in the dark as it is not com parable to the information package Rita gave.
       
      Thank you for supporting :)

      Good Evening

      The cartridge is old news now, that was clearly 1990 technology--- sorry to say. There are cables from Canada that are 45.00 for the cable..

      While poking around looking at DAK cables I found a new gadget, at least new to 
      me, the Brother Super Cartridge for brother machines which use the cartridge 
      (270, 970, 965i, etc.) 
       
      It says it can be used without DAK to transfer designs from the computer to the 
      km and also in reverse. 
       
      Has anyone used one? I found it described at Mike Becker's store  
      http://store.dknits.com/pd-brother-super-cartridge.cfm   but have not had time 
      to contact him to see how it works. 
       
      It comes with utility software and a cable and a cartridge and is not 
      cheap.....but at $330 is less than DAK plus the appropriate cable. 
       
      <
       span style="color: black;">I do not know what format the designs are saved as, or whether it could be used 
      with Wincrea which is a free design program. Maybe a design program is not 
       needed with the utility part.  (As you can tell, I don't know a whole lot about 
      formats, but I am trying to learn.) 
       
      If anyone has used this new gadget, I would like to hear about it. 
       
      Thanks,
      Rita in Raleigh, NC

          I just checked the dknits website. I see a cable listed :


          IK cable only (See Note:) KH900, KH965, KH970, KH270, CK35 74.00 49.95
          Note: The IK extension consists of a sensor cable + a magnet to mount on carriage (a.k.a. knitlink arm)

          *************************************************
          * the 74.00 was apparently the original price and the 49.95 the current one.
          BUT this cable does not transmit pattern signals from the computer. It is used as an addition to the original cartridge for interactive knitting with DAK.

          I note that although Mike has listed Cartridge at $319.95, when I click for further info, it goes to a page describing Brother Super Cartridge for $329.95. And when I click for further info on Cartridge plus K-cable it also goes to the Brother Super Cartridge.

          Apparently the Brother Super Cartridge has replaced the failing original cartridge and the original cartridge plus cable.

          **************************************
          The only other item under $100 on the cables page is the Pattern Explorer software for $39.95 and this is not a cable.

          **************************************

          Sorting my way through these many cables is confusing, but I believe I have it straight. I have used the brother cables frequently and successfully for 965i, 970, 930 and the SR cable 2 (not successfully so I gave up), the Passap cable for interactive knitting, and a couple of cables by Jos Timmerman (BL7 USB and Silverknit with USB cable).

          ***********************************

          Reid, if you come to the Triangle Machine Knitters meeting on Saturday the 19th, I will be happy to speak with you in person and possibly show you some of the cables and how they work. I do not have the cartridge,though, but I do have DAK and lots of cables.

          Sincerely,
          Rita in Raleigh, NC

            Hi Ilia,
            I liked the link you provided for cables. I do not know if they ship to the USA, but the prices I saw seem comparable to those from dknits.

            I liked the cards for embroidery machines too.

            By the way, dknits (distinctive knits)is in Indiana in the USA.

            Yes, it is hard to write in a language not your basic one. I am impressed with the communication skills of those of you from non-English speaking countries. That is a skill beyond me. I can sort of eavesdrop (overhear conversations) in Spanish, but as I told a table-mate on a ship, all I could understand when he was talking to his wife in German was that they were talking about the potatoes. (That was the only word I recognized and that was only because we had potatoes on our plates <G>)
