    Can you download games from playstation store to an external storage device? I have a new WD Black 2tb device. I tried to download a game from ps store and it said not enough storage space. I know it has space. It's a brand new device. Help please. I formatted also.

    How did you format it? You have to let the PS4 format it.

    Have you selected your external drive as the application install location?

    1. From your PS4™, go to [Settings] > [Storage], and then press the OPTIONS button.
    2. Select [Application Install Location] > [Extended Storage].
    3. Applications will now be set to install in extended storage.
