Is there a definitive word on how big a drive the PS4 will accept. I remember seeing 10 or 11mm drives might fit?

Has anyone found a solution to installing the 750gb Momentus XT (st750lx003)? I'm having the exact same problem, tried everything! My other standard 250gb HDD works fine as soon as I switch that over, but not the 750gb XT.

 

It seems there are 2 versions of the 750gb XT: st750lx003 and stbd750100. Only the latter seems to work on PS4. There MUST be a way to get the former working though!

Installed a 1TB drive today, Western Digital WD10JPVX. It's a 5400 rpm drive as I went for space, low cost and cool running over saving a few seconds with a high rpm drive, or the expense of a hybrid or SSD. $66.00 on Amazon black friday deal and I'm happy with it.

Install is a snap with the process done in less than 10 minutes. I re-installed 4 disc games with patches for each, both Plus downloads (Contrast and Resogun) with patches in about 30 minutes total. Warframe and patch added about 25 min. and I was back where I was. All the saves on the cloud downloaded back to the system at a few seconds each. If you want a bigger HDD then swap it out with no fear as the process is as easy as it looks in the vids.

A side note: the download titles have their timing fixed. Each downloaded the full game first, then the patch second. This eliminates the downloads getting stuck when trying to install a patch without the base game being done and the system not knowing what to do with it. Apps like Amazon instant and Redbox have a file that you can save to the cloud and download after the install, making them work just like they should without having to sign in or verify that you own them.

Hey all. I'm having the EXACT same issue with my EXACT same Momentus XT 500GB. Any results after that? Very disappointed

I don't know if this was mentioned already, but you need a minimum 160GB sized HDD/SSD installed for the PS4 to turn on, just giving a heads-up before purchasing a new drive. :D

Sorry to bump, but firmware 1.70 now supports this drive for all those that had problems. I have the ST95005620AS specifically, so if you have one of the momentus xt's try it now.
