    Three types of drives:

    Regular HDD (spindle): slow, cheap.
    SSHD (hybrid): has both a spindle disk, and some flash memory to speed things up. Faster than a regular drive, but more expensive.
    SSD: very fast, very expensive.

    Yeah SSDs are very expensive. SSHDs like the one that Loco mentioned are much more reasonable.

    If you're running out of space, SSHDs are the go because they give you better performance and you can still get big ones at a reasonable price.

    SSDs are obviously the ultimate in terms of performance, but they're so expensive that the big capacities become a little bit ludicrous.

    Don't forget though that the PS4 supports external drives now as well. I have a big internal SSHD, and a small external SSD: I copy the games I'm currently playing to the small SSD so that they load really fast, and keep everything else on the SSHD.

    It depends on what your current drive is, what your new drive is, how they're each going to be used, and what they currently have on them.

    We have a thread on PS4 HDD upgrades that should help you out:
    http://www.ausforces.com/showthread....S4-HDD-Upgrade

    Are you sure that you don't want to retain the data from your current HDD apart from save files? Are you happy to redownload all of your games and their patches? Not worried about keeping game captures, themes, etc?

    I thought the same then realised there was a bunch of Destiny footage and photos I should have saved

    Game downloads etc didn't bother me at all it was just photos and vids I should have thought twice about.

    Also make sure you download the right update for the PS4 it'll be about 900mb from memory last time.

    I had some stuff on there but didn't particularly need it as most was put on YouTube account.

    I can swap drives again that's no big deal I suppose

    Yeah I made that mistake at first and was furious at why it wasnt doing what it was told lol.

    If you go to put old HDD back in I'm pretty sure it'll make you format the drive before you can use it, that's why you need to copy anything you want first.

    No the same HDD put back into the same machine should work I think (not that I've ever tried it), provided it hasn't been messed with in any way.

    EDIT: Assuming no firmware updates.

    Yea wasn't sure if it would try format or if it read the HDD and saw that there was firmware on it and was ok.

    I just edited my post above right as you replied. All of the encryption stuff should be fine because it's the same drive in the same machine. The only tricky thing would be if there's a firmware update; if that got installed on the new drive, I think the old drive might be out of luck: it'd be out of step and I don't know if there'd be a way to bring it up to speed without formatting.

    Depends on what you're trying to do.

    For video: upload from PS4 to YouTube, watch video on YouTube on phone (or anything).

    For images, any image you send in a PSN message can be seen (and saved) in the Messages app on your phone. Any image posted to a PSN Community wall can be seen (and saved) in the Communities app on your phone.

    Then there's the USB export --> PC --> Phone route, plus the Share button app/service integration options.

    I'm having an issue with my PS4 Pro - it won't read game discs. It will still play Blu-rays though. Has anyone had this issue? Did some googling and one suggestion was to rebuild the database which I did, but that didn't fix the problem. It's a bit of a pain because I bought it 2nd hand (although only a couple of months old) so anticipating issues going to Sony on it...

    Will it read any game discs? OkiiOtoko was having an issue recently that was eventually traced to a dodgy game disc.

    It does sound like the laser might be struggling, but you could try the more extreme safe mode (service menu) options as a last resort if rebuilding the database didn't work.

    https://www.playstation.com/en-au/ge...playstation-4/

    Try option 4 first. If that doesn't work, 6 and 7 might, but they'll require wiping your PS4 (save games, downloaded games, game installs, share videos and screenshots, themes, system and network settings, etc. ). It's probably worth chatting to Sony before doing 6 or 7.

    Sony has had issues with the disc drives since PS1, the thing I don't understand though is that on PS4 the data is on the HDD so the disc does not need to be accessed constantly as in previous gens, so you would think that would mitigate the problem.

    I wonder if the issue on PS4 is a problem with the actual laser or some sort of software error.


    My OG PS4 had the suspend shutdown problem but my Pro has been fine so far, touch wood(!), I have noticed however it sometimes stutters on the menu but only when connected to PSN, unplug the Ethernet and it is smooth as butter.

    Also in storage under applications there is an "Other" file that is taking up 2.20GB, it bugged the hell out of me at first and I tried deleting a bunch of stuff but it never cleared. I think it may be some sort of temporary RAM disk storage or something.
