Yes and no.
I mean the time which needed to fill up the internal buffer mostly depend on the processor inside of the LP-16. (it also depend on the channel count and sample rate as well the bit depth of the song.
So this really does not depend on the USB drive (unless if the drive is really slow, but the drives today has more then enough speed especially for reading)
But something is strange with your setup.
The device should have preloading which means if the song over the next song pre-loaded and ready to playback instantly.
I made a quick test. I have a Sandisk ultra fit (USB3) drive connected to LP-16 with 48kHz/24bit 16channels songs. The pre-loading takes around 2-3 seconds then the song playback start instantly if i push the footswitch.
Could you please make sure your device running 83934 firmware release. You can check that when you turn on the device you should see a 4 or 5 digit number on the screen. If you see different number please update your device first.
