I dropped my PS4 pro as I travel around a lot and ended up being silly and dropping it lol..

So now it's giving me the error that it can not read storage device so I am going to change the HDD, one question,

Will a 3.5" drive fit or do I need a 2.5"?

Thanks in advance...

You need a 2.5" drive. I would recommend an SSD as they are dropping in price and since you travel a lot nothing will happen to an ssd if you drop it because it isn't a mechanical hdd.

Thanks man, I just picked up a 2.5 mechanical because I'm scared I might of broke more than the hard drive lol, I'll look into an SSD if this works fine. I'll just be more careful when moving around in the meantime

most likely its the hdd, swap it, but it also could be the hdmi port. if the console was plugged in.

Tried plugging it into the console via USB in safe mode and didnt connect, also tried to charge it up via wall socket but it didnt seem to charge. Orange light just flashed for a second then off... Think the battery is fried on the controller, getting a lend of one tomorrow to try and see how it goes
