I bought a Western Digital My Passport for Mac 1tb hard drive. I'm using it for moving videos from my ps4 to my mac to upload to YouTube. The hard drive wont take anything over half a gig of video from my ps4. Then when I plug it in to the mac it says I have nothing on it. Can I use a regular hard drive for this?

Thanks,
John

Sorry, I'm just guessing here.

After you move a video to the drive, does the PS4 see and play the video?

You may need to look for help in a PS4 forum. If the drive is FAT32, the Mac should have no problem reading it. If the move/save to the drive failed, it may not show up in the Mac finder as it may not be a complete video file.

The best format for data interchange is exFAT. I believe PS4 supports this, although you may need to format (erase) the drive in your Mac using Disk Utility, and select exFAT format.
