How to Fix Error Code 4B538E50 in NBA 2K23 AI

You’ve purchased your DLC So you must be able to use it in all times. However, there were some PS4 users experienced their DLC being removed unexpectedly and there was no solution other than reinstalling the entire thing. Before you attempt to reinstall all your game content and losing your saved data it is a good idea to consider this simple fix, an easier solution to the issue.

DLC on PS4 isn’t typically a big mess up in this manner. The problem is due to the latest 10.00 software update that came with a few new features. One unintended effect was the removal of DLC from certain PS4 devices, specifically in the case of PS4s that use internal hard drives to save DLC.

Although Sony will surely release a patch when they can fix the issue it’s not necessary to sit around waiting. Reddit user SegaJAM has shared a solution on r/PS4 that has saved a lot of people users in the comments of their DLC and their sanity. It’s a quick, simple four-step method to restore DLC following updating firmware.

To access your PS4 dashboard, press the PS button on your controller.

Click on Sounds/Devices Select Sounds/Devices, and then click Stop using Extended Storage. There will be an alert that lets you know that you can disconnect your external hard drive however, you do not have to do it, so don’t worry about it.

Press and hold on the PS button, and then select power > restart PS4.

You must wait until the PS4 to scan the drive.

That’s it! DLC will be available for titles on your external drive. Some have suggested in the near future, disconnecting the externe hard drive to your PS4 prior to making firmware upgrades. This could prevent issues from happening next time.

It’s possible that the firmware update could have affected DLC on the internal drive, too at least as per one of the posts on the Reddit thread. It’s not clear if this fix will work in this case.
