A few weeks ago I treated myself to the Cricut Explore.  Since then I have spent hours trying to hook up my cartridges.  I guess Cricut Craft Room is not compatible with newest version of Mac software. I called Cricut they told me to use a PC and e-mailed me a few steps.  I thought I had it figured out.  After 7 hours of what I thought was uploading my Gypsy to Cricut Craft Roon nothing had synced.  To make a long story short, I spoke with someone from Cricut who was very nice and patient with me.  At this point I was ready to take the thing back.  I wanted to make a project with Life Is a Beach, which I own.  Circuit were very helpful, they went into my computer and still couldn't get my carts on my gypsy into circut Craftroom.  So then I had to take photos of the front and back of my carts and create a list.  Anita at Cricut was wonderful.  I hope to create a few projects with it tomorrow.  Has anyone else had this problem?


  1. So...did you finally get everything loaded in the end? Can't wait to see what you make!

  2. Hi Katie, first congrats on your new Cricut, my daughter bought me a Mother's Day/Birthday/Christmas gift one this year. I love it however I was having trouble using the Blue Tooth on my old IMac, I switched to my old PC via USB cord and things are moving along fine now. Good luck and enjoy, the machine cuts beautifully, I really enjoy mine. Hugs, Lori m

  3. I hope it all works out for you! That can be so frustrating but at least you are getting the help from Cricut! I have been in the middle of remodeling my craft room so I haven't even attempted to mess with my Cricut Explore yet. I need to do that soon~fingers crossed that I have no issues!
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  4. Congrats on your new Explore, but oh, what a nightmare. I was worried when I hooked mine up because I sold all of my cartridges. I had them loaded onto the old Cricut Craft Room and on my Gypsy. Thankfully, they transferred right over to Design Space. It's been a year ago so I'm not sure how I did it...I think they transferred from CCR and not my Gypsy, but I'm not positive. I hope you are able to get it all figured out. It really is an awesome machine. I really need to use mine more. Keep us posted with the progress!! Have a great day :)
