SOURCE: embroidery stick
You need to wait a minute or so after inserting the stick before touching the icon on the screen. This is my procedure, which works for me:
Machine off; put on embroidery arm; turn on machine, calibrate embroidery arm; start to hoop project, look out threads etc for a little while (the machine's internal computer is "booting up" in this time); insert USB stick (make sure it lights up); finish hooping, thread machine for first colour etc for a minute or two; touch stick/floppy icon; design menus load; continue making my selections.
If you get a message "no disk" or something like that, push the stick in tighter - but don't be too rough with it!
The sewing machine actually has a computer inside it, and it needs time to do its thing. It is unfortunate that the internal computer is a very slow one! We are such a "now" generation, it is very frustrating having to wait. I do find that if I occupy myself while I am waiting, it is not such a nuisance and I avoid the temptation to just keep jabbing at that icon until something happens.
