How to Attach Disc Drive to PlayStation 5 Slim Digital Edition


Sony launched the PlayStation 5 slim version last year. It is the default and only model on sale now unless you can find the older version somewhere. This is a slimmer version featuring 1TB SSD storage.

The new PlayStation 5 Slim is also available in a digital edition similar to the original version. The difference this time around is that it supports attaching a physical disc drive. It allows users to pair a disc drive if they want to play physical PlayStation game discs.

The overall PlayStation 5 disc installment process is easy to follow. Let’s have a step-by-step look at what you need to do.

Attach Disc Drive to PlayStation 5 Slim Digital Edition

  1. The first step is to ensure that your PlayStation 5 is powered off and all cables are unplugged.
  2. If you were using the console earlier, wait until it cools down.
  3. Place your PlayStation 5 upside down on a flat surface. The bottom side should be facing up and its front side should be facing you.
  4. Remove the two clip-like horizontal stand feet (short ones).
  5. You have to lift the circle cover away slightly, detach the clips, and eventually remove it.
  6. Take the disc drive and align its clips with the two holes on the console, marked with an upside-down triangle.
  7. Push it firmly until you hear a click sound.
  8. Attach your circle cover and horizontal stand feet (long ones) which come with the disc drive.
  9. Align the clips of the cover with corresponding holes on the console and push until there is a click sound.
  10. Connect all cables to the console and power it on. Make sure you are connected online as it is required to pair the disc drive with the console.
  11. Follow on-screen instructions and you are set.

This is how you can attach a physical disc drive to the PlayStation 5 slim digital edition without issues. For any questions or doubts you may have, feel free to ask them in the comments section below.
