PS4 Hard drive problem?

8 posts in this topic

I am need of some help guys. Recently I have been having problems with my original PS4 with a seagate 2tb hard drive I installed years ago. Just now have I been having problems with games not loading properly, discs freezing, and my PS4 needing to be unplugged to be restarted. 

 

I am assuming my hard drive is having problems keeping up. But before I came to this conclusion I bought an entirely new PS4 and put my old 2tb hard drive in that, but I am having the same problem, one of my games froze and the PS4 needed to be restarted and now I get the same messages I've been getting before on my old PS4, "Cannot start the PS4, connect DS4 to...."  

 

So I don't need to buy another PS4, just another hard drive or SSD? One that I can rely on. I am currently looking at the Seagate FireCuda 2TB Solid State Hybrid Drive Performance SSHD – 2.5 Inch SATA 6Gb/s as a replacement. Any suggestions on what I should get or is the one I'm looking at a good choice? 

 

Thanks

If you are experiencing the same problems with the old HD and a new PS4, I'd say definitely buy the Seagate FireCuda 2TB.  I purchased that one and it has been fantastic.  And I play heavy graphic games and it really needs to keep up with the action.

@X_RaceKing_X Quick question: how did the new PS4 run without the old HD?  Was it okay?

It has been running fine for a long time. It's just recently I've been downloading a lot of games onto to it and now it's giving me problems.

Im not very knowledgeable when it comes to this kind of thing but did you try rebuilding your database?

I don't get that option, every time my PS4 has been in safe mode the hard drive gets wiped because I can't start it without having to reinstall the system software.

I would recommend upgrading to the slim, the original PS4's are really not very good but the slim is excellent and very quiet.

Hi, Im not a expert on hard drives but, as far as I discover doing some research online, I upgraded my ps4 last year hd with a Samsung SSD instead of a SSHD, if you are interested on a fastest load times as possible don't get a hybrid disk, but again it can be a little more expensive, just my 2 cents
