Topic: PS4 issue

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


I am having a issue with my PS4. When I turn it on it says USB storage device is not connected and wonโ€™t let me play any games. I have never used my usb for anything other then to charge my controller. I donโ€™t have any sticks or anything. All my games are downloaded directly on my PS4. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to fix this problem or if my PlayStation is ruined? Thanks for any advice.

@315mike I get that too from time to time here's how I fix it.

1. Full turn off the power to the PS4, don't put it into rest mode turn it off completely.

2. Once it's turned off unplug your hardrive (if it can be turn it off as well) and wait 30 seconds to a minute.

3. After waiting plug the hard drive back in and power it on the. Turn the PS4 on.

4. A message should appear saying that the hard drive was improperly shutdown (don't worry it says that even if it is) and needs to be repaired. Follow the prompts and repair the drive. After a bit (depending on how many games you have on the drive). It will finish repairing takeing you to your PS4 home screen and everything should be fine now.

I am not sure what casuses this, but as I said I get this time and time again and this works every time.

@Tasuki He doesn't have an external hard drive to unplug and plug back in to the PS4? ๐Ÿ˜‚

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game
