2. Play Games on PS4 Without Disc.

As part of the PS4 system software version 4.50 which went live this week, you’ll see that Sonny team added the much-requested ability to download and store your games and apps on an external HDD storage device. It’s very super easy to set up and use an external HDD with your PS4 or PS4 Pro.

Here I’ll share this article on How to download and store PS4 games and apps to an external HDD? But before you get started, this guide may come in useful.

Download and Store PS4 Games and Apps to an External HDD?

Keep even more games at your PS4 Slim and Pro with an external HDD for your PS4.

  • Minimum HDD spec: The most important thing to remember before you buy a new storage device – or try to use one you already own. Is to make sure it meets the minimum requirements for use with your PS4 slim and pro.
  • Connection: USB 3.0 or later.
  • Storage: Minimum 250GB & Maximum 8TB.

Note: There is no guarantee that all HDD or USB storage devices are compatible with your system.

Format your external HDD

Most storage devices will be a specific format out-of-the-box (usually FAT/FAT32/exFAT/NTFS/HFS). To prepare it for use with your PS4 Slim and Pro you’ll need to format it to a special type to ensure it will work:

  1. Go to the Settings menu from your PS4 home screen.
  2. Scroll down to the Devices menu.
  3. Choose ‘USB Storage Devices’.
  4. Select your External HDD, then choose “Format as extended storage”.

You’ll see a number of warnings that formatting your device will remove any previously installed data on your device, so before you hit ‘OK’, make sure that there’s nothing stored on the device like photos, videos, etc, that you don’t want to lose.

Installing Games and Apps (and adds-on) to Your External HDD/internal storage

Once formatted, your external HDD will be set as the default download location as long as it remains plugged into your PS4.

If you want to switch back to your PS4 Slim/Pro internal storage for downloads (and back again to the external HDD), that’s easy too:

  1. Go to the Settings menu from your PS4 home screen.
  2. Scroll down to ‘Storage’.
  3. Choose which location you want to download to – either System Storage or your External HDD.
  4. Press the ‘Options’ button and select ‘Application install location’ to set the target download location – either ‘System Storage’ or ‘Extended Storage’.

Moving games and apps onto your external HDD device

If you want to organize the apps and games that are currently installed on your PS4 internal storage, you can easily move them over to the external storage device from internal storage.

  1. Go to the Settings menu from your PS4 home screen.
  2. Scroll down to the ‘Storage’.
  3. Select ‘System Storage’, then ‘Applications’.
  4. Press the ‘Options’ button, then choose ‘Move to Extended Storage’.
  5. Choose which games and apps you want to move by ticking the boxes that appear next to their names. You can select as many as you like, providing your external HDD has enough free space to store them.
  6. Select ‘Move’ then hit ‘OK to begin the transfer.

Removing your external HDD device

It’s very important to note to remove your USB storage device when your PS4 is switched on without properly disconnecting it.

To remove the external Hard Disk Drive, access the Quick Menu by holding down the PS4 button on your controller, then choose ‘Sound/Devices’ then ‘Stop using extended storage’. Once that’s done, you’ll see a message that it’s safe to disconnect the device from the USB port.
