    Hi guys,

    I am attempting to simply copy mp4 files from my laptop/PC to my generic usb mass storage device I recently bought. I have a Sandisk Cruzer blade that works no problem. I bought a new 512gb usb disk from amazon because I wanted to be able to fit more VR videos to play on ps4's VR cinema app Littlstar. When I copy the mp4 files to the mass storage device they lose the picture of the file and just become the icon and no longer play even after they have fully transferred and the size is exactly the same as the original file.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    What format did the new device come as? Fat32 or NTFS? Fat32 has a 4gig size limit, NTFS does not.
