I am sending this, as i went to go and play on my PS4 and it won't start up. All i keep getting is checking storage on PS4 and then it will say that PS4 won't start, connect controller to USB cable and when i've done that it says to connect USB device to try and reinstall the latest system update, and i did as i downloaded the system update from my laptop and sent it to USB device, but when i've put the USB device into the PS4 and click next, it then says to me that the PS4 could not find the USB device

    The USB device must be in either the FAT32 or exFAT file system and the folder structure must be in uppercase letters, if the system is asking for the re-installation update make sure you have downloaded the 1.2GB re-installation update file not the 450mb to 500mb update file.
