Uhmm, It's been a while since I had a 180, but I'm pretty sure it does NOT use
Active Sync. It has a serial connection and uses a USB-to-serial adapter to do
the communications because most computers still around and working don't have
serial ports anymore. So, what is important is buying a USB-to-serial adapter
that has a driver that works with the kind of operating system on the computer
your friend is using. For a while during transition, if your computer is
Windows 7, you had to be careful to get a brand of adapter that the manufacturer
had developed a driver for Win7 for the adapter.
If I'm wrong about this, I'm sorry for the confusion, but I'm pretty sure the
only sewing machines that ever used Active Sync for communications are the 200
and the 730, which are the only Windows-based sewing machines.
