Hello everyone.

Has anyone else recently tried to reinstall the system on their PS4?

I recently got a PS4 and have been trying to upgrade the HDD.
Physically, it's gone in no problem. When I tried running the installation from my USB it tells me that the file is corrupt.

I've made sure I've downloaded the 730MB (something like that) file, as opposed to the 135MB file, and it still says it's corrupt. And I've triple checked that the folder destinations, folder names and file name are all spelt correct and so on.
Just wondering if anyone knows of any issues. I'm going to try and reach out to Sony tomorrow.

My friend reckons I should try boring the system up with the original HDD, but I honestly don't see what that could do if the whole system is just going to be wiped.

Anyway, an info is welcome.

Thanks.

Verify that the USB memory stick is formatted as FAT (not FAT32)

Verify that the directory is in your PC (drive letter will vary)
E:\PS4\UPDATE\
And the file name is PS4UPDATE.PUP

I haven't heard anything about there being an issue with this Update and upgrading HDDs.

If you still have problems you can also get an older update file and then use it, or simply toss in the old HDD and keep using it until the next update, which I'd expect soon. It's been 1 month since 1.75 came out and they seldom go much beyond 1mo w/o an update.

Good Luck.

Iirc when I did a new HD install couple weeks ago I had this problem , and it was due to either the folder name , or file name (or extension) on my stick , can't remember. I caught it , fixed it & it fired right through install.

Hey guys.

So I guess for some reason it didn't like my USB drives.
I managed I get it to work with my USB drive that I used to transfer files to my PS3 in the past. I didn't quite understand its logic, but I've got it to work.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
