    I have an external HDD I'm trying to use with a PS4. The external is SATA and the PS4 needs USB. What do I need to make this work and has anyone added an ESATA external to a PS4?

    Thanks for the reply. So could I not use a ESATA to USB cable? I found those online.

    Kid just wants more storage for games. HDD is not my specialty. I know enough to take one out of an old DVR and was hoping he could use it.
