I've been linking my cartridges onto the Cricut craft room and one is still linking after 20 minutes. The others I did only took a few minutes but this one is taking a long time and I can't do anything until its done. Do some cartridges take this long to upload?

(the one I have in is George and Basic Shapes)

I never linked George to CCR, but there isn't any content on it from what I understand. So maybe that is the reason why....Do you really need George seeing there is a basic shape digital cartridge that is free with CCR? Just a thought.

Thanks. I need to explore CCR a little more. I just started using it last week when I got my Expression hooked up and today was linking up my cartrigdes. I gave up on linking George and I'll just leave it unlinked.

My George was already linked and I didn't do it.
Are you sure it isn't already linked? Did you look under "my cartridges".
I think once you register all your items, your machines, your Gypsy, etc. and then set up your account to use the Craftroom, I think they get linked automatically, ( not all the regular cartridges tho).
I'm just trying to give ideas! Because all the preloads I have to my machines are already linked into my CCR account.
And seeings as "George" is "preloaded" into every machine, I just assumed that that's how it got linked into "my cartridges" on the CCR program.

Thanks Trish. It isn't already linked in my account. I got George when I bought the "original" Cricut and never hooked it up to CCR. It's not listed in the "my cartridge" section. I looked online and other had problems linking George. I don't think the Expressions I bought (the pink one) had preloaded cartridges on it.

That's where I got my George from too, the original baby Cricut.
Have you registered your machine on your Cricut acct?
That is how the automatic linking occurs.

No, I haven't registered it yet. I hadn't really thought about doing that. Maybe I need to do that.

Yep, once you do that it should show up in your "my cart" area!
Hope it works for you.
