Copying files with SX Installer

Hi. I noticed this weird thing when copying stuff using the built-in file manager. I don't want to power off the Switch and take out the microSD card every time I want to copy a game onto it. Also I don't use ftp because it's too slow. I copy the games to a USB flash drive, connect it to the Switch via an OTG adapter and go on with the "procedure".
Pretty much every time when I hit the L button to "Copy", then go to sdmc/sxos/xci and hit the R button to "Paste", the screen just flashes and nothing happens. I have to go back to the USB, press "Copy" again and "Paste" on the SD card and only then it will work.
Before I said "pretty much every time" because once when I hit "Paste" for the second time, the Switch gave me a black screen with an error number and a message to press the power button to restart the console. But this didn't happen ever since.
Is this glitch or bug something to worry about or is it just me and I should check something in settings maybe?
So yeah, I just wanted to let you know, thanks.
