Set up your drive with PS4

by abby1991 In reply to Seagate 2TB External driv ...

if you are using the drive for the very first time on your PS4 system then you need to set up that external drive on your PS4. For that first thing, you need to do is format your hard drive. After that move your data to the External drive by following below steps:

1. Head to Settings > Storage > System Storage.
2. Select Applications and tap X.
3. Tap Options, select Move to Extended Storage.
4. Select the games you want to move by pressing X next to each title, then select Move. Wait for the games to transfer.

If the issue still exists then there might be some problem with the external drive. Also, please share if there is any error message displays on the screen

please check and confirm if hard disk when connected to your laptop or desktop. If it works then the harddisk is not compatible with your playstation. If not, tan there is a problem with your external hdd so need to buy a new one.
