PS4 game save data transfer

Post by Spinynorman » 26 Dec 2018, 17:23

I think it is possible to save a PS4 saved game to a usb stick and transfer to another PS4. However when I try to do it I am told that there is no data on the stick. Could it be that I am trying to load it onto a PS4pro?

I'm baffled.

Have done a bit of Googling during half time and you could have a read of :

Or CNET say:

Saving data to a USB device
If you don't trust Sony's servers or you aren't a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can also transfer data using a USB stick. Connect the USB stick, and in the Saved Data in System Storage section of the Settings menu, click Copy to USB Storage Device, select the game data you want to transfer, and click Copy.

All from :

There is some waffle about how the drive has been formatted

HTH (don't ask me any questions though, the above is the extent of my knowledge!)
