Thanks. My machine says Innovis 8500, but I purchased the upgrade to 8500D. Do I select 8500D? Deb

This process is the same for any Brother machine that might need an upgrade. When you go to the website check for your specific model - Quattro, Dreamweaver, etc. Let me know if you need more help with that Cheers, Angela
