During the initial setup, your PS5 will ask if you want to connect your PS4 via USB or LAN in order to transfer data. This causes problems for users. Wait for an update from Sony before doing a transfer.

To be honest, we would suggest doing without data transmission altogether. While many users were able to go through the transfer process with no problems, there are enough complaints to warrant avoidance.

Do not pull the plug out of the socket during the transfer

If you think you need to transfer your PS4 data, be patient. Some users encounter an issue where the system appears to have frozen when in fact it is not. Do not pull the plug out of the socket as this could damage the system. Be patient and wait. If after a long time it looks like the PS5 is broken, give me a call PlayStation customer support.

Do not use an external hard drive

Users are reporting Problems transferring data from PS4 to PS5 using an external hard drive. Data can get corrupted anywhere during the transfer process. Wait for an update from Sony.

Stick to Wi-Fi

While the PS5 community is still trying to pinpoint the culprit for some of these mistakes, it’s all about data transfer and networking. It’s hard to say if the use of the LAN port is definitely a culprit, but it could be related. For now, don’t use ethernet and stick to the PS5 lightning-fast Wi-Fi 6, a feature not found on the Xbox Series X.

Use the HDMI cable that came with your PS5

Not all HDMI cables will work with the PS5. In particular, you need an HDMI 2.1 cable, also known as an ultra-high speed HDMI cable. Using the wrong HDMI cable can result in a black screen or may not output 4K 60fps gameplay. Using the supplied HDMI cable guarantees no problems.
