But recently users have complained about an issue with the data transfer of PS4 to PS5. Users said that the data transfer feature of PS5 is not working. Users have tried ethernet multiple times without the cable and Wi-Fi. The process starts where users can select what they want to transfer and the process starts the preparation but eventually comes with an error. A user said that he tried to transfer Rainbow Six Siege with ethernet. It took a couple of hours for the transfer and within 10 minutes of the transfer being complete, he got a message which said that the transfer failed. Another user facing the same type of issue said that the total flagged transfer size was 82GB and there were frequent transfer errors in around 80GB. If you are experiencing the same type of issue in your PS5, you can follow these steps to fix the issue by yourself –
Boot PS4 and PS5 into safe mode and run the software update on both the consoles. Remember that the updates only happen in safe mode.
If that doesn’t work, Boot your console in safe mode and restore the default settings on your PS5.
If that doesn’t work, Boot your console and rebuild the database on your PS5.
Ensure that both the consoles are on the same stable Wi-Fi network.
