External hard drives and rest mode create problems, possible solutions

New consoles always mean teething troubles. The Playstation 5 has been available in some regions of the world for two days and there are more and more reports of various problems with the console through the social networks. This is nothing special at first, and in most cases it does not seem to be a widespread error. No comparison to the Xbox 360’s RRoD or the PS3’s YLoD. Whoever gets their PS5 next week should be able to gamble without further ado.

PS5 problems and their solutions

Most problem reports are associated with an error message stating that the database is corrupted and needs to be rebuilt. This often occurs when connecting an external hard drive with PS4 games. For some users, however, it is also sufficient to connect the PS5 to the PS4 via a LAN cable or to make simple settings on the PS5. Solutions are to restart or update the console. If necessary, it even has to be reset to the factory settings.

Another problem is the rest of the fashion. This can also lead to the error message mentioned. This is particularly common with Spider-Man Remastered. In the worst case scenario, the console will even become unusable. The easiest way to avoid the problems is to not use the functions mentioned. If you don’t mind, you should wait to transfer your PS4 library to the new hardware until Sony comments on the subject and, at best, publishes a patch.
