It is indeed terrible enough so that the PS5 doesn’t presently allow auxiliary SSD memory for PS5 games, but problems like that might tempt you to upgrade to an Xbox Series X instead. On the PS5, one message we’ve encountered is input lag, “Can’t install or duplicate.” Something didn’t work out.” This storage issue appears to be related to the error message CE-10005-6.

Why am I getting an error message code on my PS5 that says “can’t install or replicate”?

How can I solve the PS5’s “can’t install or replicate” problem?

  • Please ensure you have the most recent Firmware Upgrade downloaded and operating in your Settings.
  • Then switch the PS5 off now and restart it in standby mode: when the console is turned off, press hold the power button on the controller till you get a second beeping to activate ‘safe mode.’
  • You must be offered the opportunity to ‘reconstruct your databases’ while in standby mode; do so, but it should clean up the cobwebs and eliminate any storage-related bugs.

After having this done, you may have to re-download some video games and data, but it will ideally fix your problem with the “Can’t upload or duplicate” error notice.
