How to Format an External Hard Drive to PS4 or PS4 Pro:

1. First, make sure your external hard drive is USB 3.0, and not larger than 8TB!

2. Connect the external hard drive to one of the USB 3.0 ports. You’ll see a message on the screen saying the USB device is not supported because the drive hasn’t been formatted to work with the console.

3. Under Settings, go to Devices.

4. Under Devices, go to USB Storage Devices.

5. Under USB Storage Devices, press Format as Extended Storage.
That’s all there is to it. The formatting will only take a few moments and then you are good to go. Your extended storage has been effectively set up.

6. When you return to the homepage, you can see in your storage folder that you will now have access to both the System Storage and the Extended Storage. You have the ability to play even more games and expand your storage as you wish.

7. Next step after that is to know how to store any new games or move your old games over to the Extended Storage hard drive. This is also very easy to do. Once you’ve found the game you want to move into your hard drive, just press the ‘Options’ button and it will give you the chance to ‘Move to Extended Storage’.

Guys Sony released an update that supports any external hdd that’s in between 250g to 8tb. Ik it’s been out for ages but just in case nobody knew yet. like so others can see

James Browning says:

Just got a Seagate 4TB external hard drive from Amazon for $116

Cris says:

Who else is here for the PS4 4.5 update?

4EverGamer X says:

I got the Seagate & formatted it as extended storage to store my apps. Sadly, I can’t store my videos & pics from my PS4 on it.
There’s also an option to format it as exFat. Any idea what that is? It allows me to transfer my recorded clips & pics from the PS4 share function, but I can’t import any of it when using the Import feature in Sharefactory. It says it imports from a Sharefactory folder, or something. I don’t know how to create a folder for it. There’s no option.
I wanna be able to transfer my clips & pics to & from my PS4, so that I don’t have to keep redoing them if I have to initialize my PS4, or something. Is there a way?

Kouby says:

Target had mine for 100$

XenO SparKS says:

Please answer. Is it ok to leave it plugged in while running, but it won’t be an issue of overheating or any kind of internal damage??

Ralf R says:
