  13. MilkHound on December 7, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    I was getting a screen saying "update file cannot be used connect a usb storage device that contains a update file."
    I had the update instead of the full system software. Go Here and click on the !!SECOND!! little black bar that says "Agree and Download Now" it’s at the bottom.
    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/system-updates/ps4/#newinstallation

    The file should be 979 MB.

    i cant even try to save storage before i get an error software screen ….. this is literally the last resort but i dont want to lose all data etc.

  17. Alexander Scott on December 7, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Appreciate the video. I had no idea you had to create a PS4 folder with an UPDATE folder inside, containing the PUP file.
    Mine is initializing now.

  18. Itchy Shows on December 7, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    If I reinstall the new system software will my Account get lost too?

  19. Guilherme De Abreu on December 7, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    When it says preparing for the update it is taking hours and yours took barely any time

  20. abdou khadyr gueye on December 7, 2020 at 10:00 pm

  21. Rich Aguilera on December 7, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Great instruction, I followed then after choosing #7, I am getting the (SU-42118-6) error thrown. The only option I have is to turn off the PS4. Any thoughts?

  22. TomaattiBoi on December 7, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    thanks for the help

  23. Idriss benali on December 7, 2020 at 10:03 pm

  24. Zach Ortiz on December 7, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    Im trying to format but I don’t have an option for fat 32 just exFAT and NTFS. What do I do?

  25. NooberX on December 7, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    whos watching this that don’t own a ps 4?

  26. Deadlocked on December 7, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Can I install this on my PC?

  27. Cool gatez on December 7, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    I put this on a computer hard drive I have 2 hard drives one with windows 10 and now one with ps4 so I can play console on my pc and switch between drives witch is cool

  28. Brady Rohr on December 7, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    what if it downloaded as a text file, and how do I fix

  29. RedTipAlpha on December 7, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    I had to reinstall mine because it was corrupted from my brother turning it off the incorrect way each time. I have done this multiple times and I just get the error "SU-42118-6". I know this error has to do with the disc drive, which he also broke, though I did open it up to check, which may have ruined my warranty (By the way, warranties are technically not legal). How might I fix this with a completely new HDD in it?

  30. LizardEggnog on December 7, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    It worked but when I turned off the PlayStation it went back into safe mode, any solutions ?

  31. Specixus - on December 7, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Can we use a Mac to get the file or it has to be a specific computer

  32. The Warlord on December 7, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    Whatever Sony were thinking, was almost as beetle headed thinking as Apple, why have they made it so bloody horrible to upgrade, why didn’t they ship the PS4 with at least 1TB, cowboy company… I did everything you showed and got nowhere…

  33. SPIDERMAN on December 7, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    i watched so many videos and only this one helped, thank you so much

  34. Junior Santos Gerry on December 7, 2020 at 10:20 pm

  35. N30 _ on December 7, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    How to transfer game applications to new upgraded hdd without deleting update?

  36. Thorasnus on December 7, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Do I have to keep the usb in the console from now on or can I remove it?

  37. S S on December 7, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    How many gig for the usb needed?

  38. Castorena on December 7, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    I literally did this wtf dude

  39. CamaroZL1 on December 7, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Thank you so much I thought I would have to buy a new ps4. 🙂

  40. Brandon Fleming on December 7, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    How long did it take to actually install the software onto the ps4. Mine been on a black screen for like 20 mins with the light blinking blue. This is after all the progress bars for installation and initializing have finished.

  41. Twzted_Synapse on December 7, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Thank you SO much for doing a step by step vid. I spent four hours attempting to reinstall the needed software. My problem was I was naming the USB then creating the UPDATE folder, the copying the PS4UPDATE.PUP file into it. YOUR video corrected my mistake. Don’t bother with naming the USB, create a PS4 file, within that an UPDATE file and within that a PS4UPDATE.PUP exe file. I missed that first crucial step of making the PS4 file first. Your step by step was perfect! Sometimes, it’s the smallest thing, like creating the correct pathfile for the PlayStation 4 to recognize. 😔

  42. Rikers on December 7, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    thank dude u were a big help now i have to do thw worst part. wipe my entire system rip

  43. Final Remains on December 7, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Will this fix my corrupted data on my ps4? Or do I need a new hard drive

  44. tahaa on December 7, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    You don’t have to do all of this follow the simple direction below to get out of this situation.
    1. Turn off the PS4
    2. Hold the turn off- rest mode button till you hear two beebs.
    3. You will be taken to a page and what you do is go to option #6 (initialize PS4)
    4. You PS4 is fully reseted.

  45. NicaSuperSaiyan2 on December 7, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    I didnt need to do this. But my pot head friend ps4 needs a software update lol. So here I am . Thanks.
