Did I buy the wrong SSD ? Just picked up the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2 TB after installing it boots up telling me A module is inserted in the expansion slot. Turn off your PS5, remove the module and then turn the PS5 back on on.

970 won't work. Get one of these- Western Digital SN850 SSD (has heatsink version) Seagate Firecuda 530 SSD (has heatsink version) Aorus Gen4 7000s SSD (has heatsink) You can save money by buying an SSD and heatsink separately. Samsung 980 PRO SSD (has no heatsink) Crucial P5 Plus SSD (has no heatsink) XPG S70 Gammix SSD (buy without heatsink) Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSD (buy without heatsink) PNY CS3040 SSD (buy without heatsink) You can buy any one of these heatsinks- MHQJRH M.2 2280 ELUTENG M.2 2280 QIVYNSRY M.2 2280 icepc M.2 PCI-E NVME 2280 ineo 3mm with copper heatsink NGFFM2-HS804-BK heatsink EZDIY-FAB M.2 2280, Double-Sided heatsink

Screw inside the storage bay can’t be removed in mine. Waited weeks and paid hundreds for an ssd and heatsink only to be beaten by a screw I’ve never even touched until today. Wonderful.

This video fails to mention how terrible the SSD screw is that's supposed to hold your new one in place. It strips easily and doesn't come out with a Phillips 1 screwdriver like it's supposed to.

@SirKupoNut no problem. I just got a replacement drive today that's actually compatible and installed it right now. Turns out, you can do it using only one of the divisors; you don't even need to use 3 (but they only came in packs of 30 anyway). Hopefully they're as cheap for you there as they are here. The machine screws were 69 cents for 2 and the divisors were a dollar or so for the 30 pack.

@Virgil Hawkins Thank you so much for this. I raised a ticket with Sony to see if they can provide me them so we'll see otherwise I'll go and try and buy the equivalent in the UK

@SirKupoNut I went to Home Depot and got a 2-pack bag of Everbilt M3-0.5 x 10mm flat head Phillips machine screws and a 30-pack of their #6 split divisors. One of those screws and 3 divisors on it works the way the original screw and spacer were supposed to. I left the original piece of crap screw stuck in its hole because thankfully, the drives aren't that long. Problem solved... Only to discover I had purchased an incompatible drive. Smfh FML.

The m.2 screw was in too tight and got stripped. But since that is NOT a typical m.2 screw, I can't replace it with one of my spares. I need a replacement screw. I got the broken screw out, but I'm not reusing that thing. How do I order a replacement?

Get a console if you’re broke. If you’re rich… build a gaming computer… it’s way better than console and you will get more FPS and better graphics.

Is the m.2 a standalone storage unit or does it actually integrate and expand the internal ps5 ssd? I thought it turned the 825gb into whatever extra storage you inserted to that plus 825gb.

I'm worried that I might have damaged my SSD/PS5 during my install. I forgot to put my spacer/standoff in the right spot first time around and screwed my SSD + heatsink straight onto the board without the spacer. I watched a video afterwards and found out about the spacer, then immediately opened it back up to screw the SSD in place with the spacer this time. This was all before booting up and formatting the drive, so really I'm just worried that I caused physical damage to the PS5/SSD, either through bending or whatnot. I've booted it up afterwards and it seems to be working fine. Any chance I might have damaged it?

@TheDaleDalek - Thought about it some more and you’re probably OK since you had the heatsink on it which would reduce the gap between the drive and board. You wouldn’t be to first person to forget the stand-off on an m.2 drive.
TheDaleDalek
TheDaleDalek 9 gün önce
@Cerus98 yeah fair. The speed test seems to be similar to ones that I've seen for the 980 Pro. I did screw it tight, but not tight tight. The end of the drive doesn't really look bent and the SSD was in the heatsink the whole time, so I'm feeling better about it now. It's probably just my paranoia at the thought of having to replace either the SSD or the PS5 though lol
Cerus98
Cerus98 9 gün önce
@TheDaleDalek - It depends on how hard you cranked the screw down too. Might have just loosened the solder connections. I haven’t installed mine yet so I don’t know how much give there is and it’s been a while since I’ve installed an m.2. Keep an eye on it. If the speed test was in the normal range and it’s work it may be OK.

I wish you would just list some compatible drives on your website. I hate that I have to hunt around for brands that offer the capacity I want and then have to compare every spec to be disappointed it isn’t compatible. And what heatsink is that? Why can’t you just sell a heatsink? This is just ridiculously annoying and time consuming.

Playstation please fix the issue where if a power outage happens , the PS5 doesn't get bricked , please do something like the PS4 where if a power outage happend , it would perform a system storage check , and the restart normally , the PS5 in my country is very expensive and I can't afford to take the risk of buying a PS5 and be worried about something happening to it , please Playstation , I am a huge Playstation fan and u really want to buy a PS5 , Only this power outage problem is holding me back , the really worrying part is that in my country , power outages are way too common , they happen like at least once every 2 days , I can't risk it , please fix this PLAYSTATION , I am counting on you ..

Does anyone know any good ones that do all those things and are in a decent price range.
