    Hey everyone,

    I want to get a USB Flash Drive so I can take some music on my Mac and plug it into my PS4. So tomorrow I'm gonna get a SanDisk drive. My question is, (more-so just looking for confirmation) since I plan on plugging it into my PS4 eventually, I wouldn't format it as I do my Time Machine drive (OS Extended Journaled) right? Would I format it MS-DOS (FAT)? I think that would allow me to transfer files to it on the Mac and use it with my PS4. Is that correct? Thanks for any help.

    FAT should be the way to go.

    Disk Utility on the Mac offers this option.
