How to change the hard drive on a ps4

Only the following type of hard disk drive (HDD) is offically supported with the PS4:

2.5 inch (internal type) *1
Serial ATA (Parallel ATA is not supported)

*1 Proper operation is not guaranteed for all models.


There are four main steps to replacing a hard disk drive. Each of these is explained in detail in this article.

Back up your data.
Replace the hard disk drive.
Reinstall the system software.
Restore data that has been backed up.

Back up saved data for games

You can copy saved data that is stored on the PS4™ system to a USB storage device. You can also copy saved games to the cloud if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

1] Connect a USB storage device to the system.
2] Select (Settings) from the function screen.
3] Select [Application Saved Data Management] > [Saved Data in System Storage] > [Copy to USB Storage Device].
4] Select a title.
5] Press X to add a checkmark in the checkbox for the saved data you want to copy, and then select [Copy].

To back up saved data, you must update the system software and be signed in to PSN.

Replace the hard disk drive

1] Make sure the PS4 it turned completely off. When the power indicator is off, the system is completely off. If the power indicator is lit up in orange, the system is in standby mode. Exit standby mode.
2] Unplug the AC power cord, and then disconnect the other cables from the system.
For safety reasons, remove the plug for AC power cord from the electrical outlet, and then detach the other cables.
3] Slide the HDD bay cover in the direction of the arrow to remove it.
4] Remove the HDD.
5] Remove the screw.
6] Pull the HDD toward the front of the system to remove it.
7] Using a phillips screwdriver, remove the screws (four places).

Do not remove the rubber inserts from the screw holes.
Place the replacement HDD on the mounting bracket for the PS4™ system's HDD, and then attach using the screws (four places).

Do not over-tighten the screws.
Attach the HDD to the system using the screw.

Be sure to fully insert the HDD in the HDD bay.

How to stream all videos from your local network to your PS4

The PS4 is compatible with apps such as Netflix or Amazon Instant Video, but does not have much support for local files.

There are however ways to stream video content from your PC to your PS4, and provided you have a reasonable PC and a decent local network, you’ll have no problem streaming locally 1080p movies to your PS4 as well. What this means is you can access your entire library of movies from your couch.

People are regularly asking about the possibility to stream local content to the PS4 through a PS4 compatible media server. Doing so is actually extremely simple and is free, thanks to the PLEX media server and the power of HTML5. The trick is that we will be streaming videos in the PS4 browser, in full screen, through HTML5. People usually have concerns about streaming through HTML5, but the technology is now on par with what’s possible with a native app, and in my tests the streaming was basically as good as (if not better than) watching an HD video on Netflix.

As an added bonus, PLEX does not give you only access to your local files, it also has access to other video channels.

The setup is reasonably easy. It basically consists in installing the free Plex media server on your PC, Adding your video folders to it, then accessing its web interface through the PS4′s web browser.

1. (On your PC) Download and install Plex Media Server

Plex Media Server is free and can be downloaded here

Install and run it. On windows, you should see a new icon in your task bar, telling you that Plex media server is running.

2. (On your PC) Add videos to your Plex library

Go to on your web browser. The PLEX interface should show up.

To add your local movies to the Plex library, click on the “+” symbol in the left side Menu of the page, (above “Channels”). This will open the UI to add a new folder. You can then select a folder on your hard drive and Plex will process it.

In order to get the best of Plex, you should follow the XBMC naming conventions for your movies. It’s a pain to do the first time you do it, but I can guarantee this will make your life easier as most Movie managers use these conventions.

Once this is done and to make sure things are working correctly, go ahead and try to play one of your movies locally in your PC browser from the Plex interface.

3. (On your PS4) Access Plex on your PS4 and configure it

Fire up your PS4 and run your browser. For this step you’ll need to know your computer’s local IP address. Typically this will be something like On windows you can get this information by opening a command line and typing “ipconfig”.

Run the PS4 browser and type your IP address followed by “:32400/web”. For example: The Plex interface should appear on your PS4 screen.

Tip: it is easier to test that everything works correctly with a computer first. For example borrow one of your family members’ computer and make sure you can access your Plex Media server from the local network. Once you get it working with computers on your network, you shouldn’t have any issues doing it with your PS4

Important configuration step: since the PS4 1.70 update, some video format compatibility got broken on the PS4. In order to get videos to work, you need to change a few parameters. In particular, you need to force AAC Audio. This is done by going to Settings > Web > Player > Show Advanced > Prefer AAC Audio. It’s important to note that you need to enable this setting from the PS4. Setting it from any other client machine will just apply the setting for that specific client, not for your PS4.

A typical symptom if you don’t do the configuration change above in Plex is that on your PS4, playing the video will constantly be showing the “buffering” animation and never start the movie.

Note: the tip above might not work with all movie files. If you run into non_working files, the only known solution for now is to re-encode your movies locally in MP4 and enabling the “optimize for web viewing” setting, for example using Handbrake. I personally have yet to find a single movie that doesn’t work for me with the “AAC” setting though.

4. Enjoy!

Assuming you can access your local Plex url from your PS4′s browser as explained, and that you did the configuration change above, you should be able to start streaming movies from your computer to your PS4. Press square on your PS4 remote for fullscreen, and enjoy your movies!

Tip: A LAN connection on both your PC and your PS4 will give much better results than Wifi for streaming movies!

How to Hack Your Wii for Homebrew in less than Five Minutes

This tutorial is all over the net c&p so thanks to google for this ;)

First things first, you're going to need the following:

A Nintendo Wii, obviously, but make sure it's running System Menu 4.3
An SD or SDHC card with some free space—it can have other stuff on it.

Step One: Get Your Wii's MAC Address

Before we can do anything, we need to go find your Wii's MAC Address. Go to your Wii's home screen and click the Wii Options button. Once it loads, choose Wii Settings. From there, navigate to the second page and click the Internet button. Finally, click the Console Information button and you'll have your Wii's MAC address. Either write this down or just leave it up on your screen.

Step Two: Generate the File

Now get on your computer and go to and enter your Wii's MAC address. You'll also need to type in what you see in the captcha image. Once you've filled those things out, cut the red or the blue wire. It doesn't really matter. This will generate a file that will start downloading.

Step Three: Prepare the SD Card

Now insert your SD or SDHC card into your computer, because we're going to need to copy some files onto it. First, unzip the file on your computer. Next, drag the contents of the zip to your SD or SDHC card. When it's done copying, eject it, and put it in your Wii.

Step Four: Open the LetterBomb

Back on the Wii, head on over to the Wii Message Center. There's going to be a new message for you with a bomb in it, but where that message is going to be will depend on your time zone and when you generated the file. In most cases, it will be in yesterday's mail, but it could be today or a couple of days ago. You'll know when you see it. When you're ready to pull the trigger, just click on the LetterBomb message icon. The process will take about a minute, so be patient. You'll have a hacked Wii when it's done.

If you run into any issues along the way it's probably because you don't have the right version of the Wii System Menu. If you try to use LetterBomb with the wrong version, it'll freeze your Wii. Not to worry—just force-reboot your Wii, make sure you update properly, and try again. Obviously you want to do the update beforehand, but in the event you forget it's not really a big deal.

Step Five: Install BootMii and the Homebrew Channel

Once LetterBomb has done its thing, it'll tell you to press 1 to continue. Do that and you'll be able to use your WiiMote to start installing things. What you're really interested in is the Homebrew Channel, but BootMii will provide you with some extra features (like backup). Once everything is installed, you'll be all set.

Fallout 4 announced

It's official! Bethesda has published the official Fallout 4 website. It's real: Fallout 4 is happening.
After years of waiting for a sequel to the hits such as Fall Out:3 and Fall Out:New Vegas, and several hints at a new release, Bethesda had accidentally released the website with over an hour left on the Website Countdown timer. It was taken down shortly after, but then a video trailer was released.
Bethesda says that the game's official world premiere will take place at their E3 conference, on June 14. Along with the release will be an official game trailer with gameplay, as the one released was in-engine, showing just the barebones of the game. Some known facts about the game is that it's only listed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Looks like Bethesda is leaving the last-gen consoles behind and are looking to make this games world as immersive as possible for a better overall gaming experience. No more information has been released about the game, as the majority of it will be revealed at E3.
