My problem is the same as ShadowDemon_20's, except I am using the 800mb file. I'll plug that into my ps4 and it will work and install correctly; I'll see the ps4 go through the reinstallation process. Then, when it reboots to complete the process, I'm brought back to the same "cannot start the PS4. connect a usb drive with update file for reinstallation of 4.50 or later". I have only been able to find like one other person online having this specific problem ever, and I don't think they ever solved it.
You are not the only one having this issue. Mine will say the same thing every time I go to start it up since trying to install the new up date. I've gone and downloaded the full install file i've tryed putting it in safe made and doing it that way but no success. It's really pissing me off and I've looked everywhere to find a solution. If you find one please let me know I'd hate for this to be the reason I quit playstation but i'm heading done that road.
It's definlty an issue after update 4.50, I'm having the same problem can't update any files to play games online and my friends are having similiar isuues.
I called sony and they said they are aware of the problems people are having after update 4.50, it's been almost 2 weeks now and I still can't update any files.
Mine is giving a lot of errors everytime i boot it sometimes just shuts down or not even boots
If i leave a disk in it´s even worse it starts spinning non stop
I´m calling sony tomorrow.
Had a launch PS3 gave me the YLOD and now this
They just don´t make them like they used to
Good old times with the PS1 and PS2. No updates needed.
The exact same thing happened to me. I called Sony and i was given help... It worked, there is a safety mode, turn of your ps4 then hold down the power nutton until you hear 2 beeps. when you do that you will be taken to the safety menu and you can try to update again doing it that way. Hope this helps you
I started having issues after the 4.50 update where the console would hang and then spit out an error message. I also couldn't download or install game updates. Looking up the error message it said it couldn't read / write data to the hard drive and to rebuild my database.
I tried rebuilding my database but got another error. After looking that one up, it said to do a clean install of the OS and start new again. Trying that I got an error saying it couldn't read my USB jump drive. After I found another person with all the same issues and they said it the hard drive and it needs to be replaced.
So seeing the hard drive in my PS4 isn't a good brand, I ordered a new one and installed a new Westen Digital black edition drive today before work.
Booted the PS4 into safe mode and tried installing the 4.50 update file. It installed it and then reboots me back into the install screen.
It will not install the 4.50 OS and load up. Really need some help here.
Same thing happened to me . Getting error code(SU-95397-6) and it's in constant loop couldn't even /get to the loading screen.
Tried everything . Thisis very frustrating and that error code wasnt even on their archive.
