How To Use your External Hard Drive

Step 1: Ensuring USB 3.0 Utilization

Be sure that the external hard drive you opt for has USB 3.0 compatibility. External and portable drives will often have this feature but be sure just in case.

Step 2: Formating The Hard Drive

Now that you have the external storage device you will need to format it so that you can use it with the PS4 4.50 firmware update. This is a fairly simple process, all you need to do is plug it into one of the ports on the PS4 and go to settings, devices and find the USB Storage Devices option. You will then be asked to format the external hard drive which is a snappy process and should not take long.

Step 3: Check For The Green light Icon

Now that the formatting part is out of the way all you need to do is fo to your storage devices and check for the green light icon next to the storage device you just formatted. This is an indication that your device is ready to use.

That is pretty much all you need to do in order to get your external storage working on the PS4 4.50 firmware update. Once this has been done, you will be given the option of using the formatted external hard drive you just formatted or keep on using the internal storage.
