    "All I had to do was plug it in and I instantly saw a pop up asking me if I wanted to convert it to my PS4(meaning I wouldn't be able to use it for anything else afterwards) I pressed "agreed" and in seconds I was able to use it...As for the initial setup - you need to do some magic to be able to format it to APFS, but if you stuck, just do a little google magic, and you'll have a running drive in a couple of minutes"
