    What file system is the USB stick in?

    If in exfat, you need to install the exfat drivers
    If in ntfs, you need to insyall ntfs-3g drivers

    Installing picons can require hard-links, so if it would need to be ext4. exfat/ntfs can't handle them.

    Not sure what error message you end up with though. Posting the exact text would be helpful - I can't see it being any issue with "out of memory" as the picons are on a file-system, not in memory.

    All your storage device are ext4. As per Birdman's post, the exact text and maybe also debug log may show the issue. Which picon set?

    EDIT:
    Highlighting everything in putty automatically copies. Just in case you want to paste details instead of screenhot. Maybe I'll add to putty guide

    Can’t quite see but it looks like your usb has a partition. I would put it a Pc and completely format it removing the partition. Then put back in and initialise it.
