"Best Partition Manager out there" by hockemoto
have used this program to resize, create, delete, format and even once, rebuild the MBR. This was across 4 large drives of different makes on 11 different partitions. All this was done rather quickly, without any data loss.

PS4 Doesn’t Read My Hard Drive

Situation
 
My PS4 (PlayStation4) was out of storage space, so I bought a 500GB external hard drive and wanted to add it to my PS4 for more memory. But when I plugged the hard drive into PS4, it said that the hard drive cannot be read and the file system is not supported.
 

Why PS4 Doesn’t Detect My Hard Drive

 
In fact, the above problem is very common and I also have this experience which makes me very puzzled and upset. Why PS4 doesn’t read my hard drive? Can I get more storage space for my PS4? After I search some forums about this problem on the internet, I know the reason which is very simple. Actually, it is that my hard drive is incompatible with PS4 in file system format. PS4 only can read exFAT and FAT32 format hard drive, but my hard drive is NTFS format. Is there any way to solve this problem?
 

How to Solve PS4 Doesn’t Read My Hard Drive Issue

 
When encountering “PS4 doesn’t recognize my external hard drive” issue, the best way is to convert your hard drive to FAT32. There are two ways that can be used to convert NTFS to FAT32 – Disk Management and MiniTool Partition Wizard.
 
Disk Management Reformat to FAT32
 
As we know, Windows has a built-in Disk Management which can be used to manage disk and partition. We can also use this utility to reformat a hard drive to FAT32. Right click a partition and click “Format” to select FAT32 file system. However, this way can cause data loss. We must back up the data which is time-consuming.

In addition, there is a limitation:
If the partition that you want to format is larger than 32 GB, Disk Management “Format” function can’t allow formatting to FAT32.
 
MiniTool Partition Wizard Helps to Convert NTFS to FAT32
 
Even though Disk Management can help to format to FAT32, this way is not safe for hard drive data and is limited in partition size. When we meet “PS4 doesn’t recognize my external hard drive” problem, we can use a professional and reliable partition and disk software to solve it. Here I’d like to recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard which can be used to do file system conversion operation between NTFS and FAT32 without any limitation safely and effectively.
 
Here is a guidance to convert to FAT32:
Step 1: Download MiniTool Partition Wizard , launch it and go to its main interface.

Step 2: Right click the first partition of a hard drive which we need to convert and select “Convert NTFS to FAT”.
 
3-convert-ntfs-to-fat32
 
Here is an important point:
PS4 only can recognize the hard drive of which the first partition is FAT32. If the first partition is NTFS, PS4 doesn’t detect the hard drive.
 

Step 3: Then we can see a preview that E partition will be converted to FAT32. Click “Apply” to perform the operation.
 
4-apply

 
After knowing the reason and solution to PS4 doesn’t read my hard drive problem, it is time to play game with PS4.
 

Summary

 
MiniTool Partition Wizard is really very great to convert partition to FAT. Apart from that, if we want to convert FAT back to NTFS, we can also use this partition and disk manager to convert FAT to NTFS without losing data easily and effectively.
