I am going bananas ! I have just got the seagate gamedrive 2TB for PS4 and I have installed the drive to the console and all it does is beep ! I cannot get the PlayStation to enter safe mode after it is installed. If I just hold the button as per instruction the second beep goes off and then the console powers off and does nothing.
I have put the old hard drive back in and everything works fine. I am stumped and it's driving me mad. I have read on the internet (so it must be true !) that the PlayStation needs more power and needs a new lead to power the hard drive ?
Someone please help me

You probably have a faulty Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Should exchange this faulty HDD or return, or use HDD's warrenty.
There is a small chance to get a defective or failing unit, even if the model is compatible and works for most other users. Might have been bad luck.
