The PlayStation 5 (PS5) has taken the gaming world by storm. One of its key features is the disc drive, which allows you to play your favorite games in high definition. This article will guide you through the process of setting up your PS5 disc drive.

Attaching the Disc Drive

Before you start, place your console on a soft cloth on a flat surface. This will prevent any scratches or damage to your PS5. Next, turn off your PS5 from the control center. Wait for the power indicator to flash white and then turn off. Once the console is off, unplug the AC power cord and all other cables.

Allow the console to cool down before proceeding. The main unit can get hot after use, so it’s important to let it cool down. Once it’s cool, place the console with the bottom facing up and the front side facing you. Remove the horizontal stand feet (short) and the circle cover.

Now, align the disc drive’s clips with the 2 holes (marked with an upside-down triangle) on the console. Push in until you hear a “click”. Attach the circle cover and horizontal stand feet (long) included with your disc drive. Connect the AC power cord and cables, and then turn on the power.

Removing the Disc Drive

The process of removing the disc drive is similar to attaching it. Start by turning off your PS5 and unplugging all cables. Let the console cool down before you start. Place the console with the bottom facing up and the front side facing you. Remove the horizontal stand feet (long) and the circle cover.

Setting up your PS5 disc drive is a straightforward process. Just follow these steps, and you’ll be ready to play your favorite games in no time. Remember, an internet connection is required to pair the disc drive and PS5 console upon set up.
