The usb storage device is not connected. We’ll it is via the usb lead that came with it.

Please can anybody help with advice?

I’ve already checked it on my pc and all is good and has 3.8 GB free.
Cannot understand why it won’t connect to my PS4

PS4 only supports FAT32 or exFAT … if your WD Elements 4TB is NTFS (or any other format) then it won’t work.

More Info Question: are you wanting to use the WD Elements as “Media Storage” or “Extended Storage” ? let me know, and i can answer (i use WD hard drives for both purposes on my PS4 Pro)
