The PS5 “Queued for Copy” error message can be confusing to see, especially when the progress bar gets stuck at 0%. This happens when transferring games from external hard drives to the PlayStation 5’s internal SSD, or when installing games from a disk. Thankfully, it’s easy to work around. Here’s the need-to-know troubleshooting info.
How to fix the PS5 “Queued for Copy” message
To fix the PS5 “Queued for Copy” message, users must:
- Wait for a few minutes.
- Ignore the “0%” and just wait for a few minutes to see if the install completes.
- For those moving PS5 games from an external drive to the internal SSD, waiting usually solves the issue.
- Disconnect from the internet.
- For whatever reason, having the internet connected can cause installing games to stop at 0%. It’s possible that a pending update is conflicting with the game being installed.
- Restart the console.
- Shut the console down fully before turning it back on.
- It might seem obvious, but some users keep their PS5 in Rest Mode for long periods of time. A full reboot can work wonders on this next-gen machine.
Thankfully, the above fixes are likely to solve most PlayStation 5 “Queued for Copy” problems. Users will be happy to know that it doesn’t involve having to redownload games. It’s a simple inaccurate message that sometimes appears. It’s confusing but, more often than not, totally harmless.
