    i get to the point where i click on a game (options) and i click on ExtGameData like you say to but when i go back, load game, goes to xmb, none of the icons change like yours do.

    Also, the Ext Game Data in the game options is not Lit up likes yours is(ex: your usb Patch option is dark) my Usb patch and ext game data are both dark. i do not know if that affects anything, all i know is its not working and was wondering if you could help.

    is there a reason no one has answered the question?

    Did you install the .PKG file for the PSN game after you've run a game using the "ExtGameDat" option?

    Also I would look into the GameData tool (http://www.ps4news.com/ps3-hacks-jai...now-available/), it is less complicated to use and you can install .PKG files to your External HDD.

    Yeah, that's because you can only use the "ExtGameData" option on games on the External HDD.
