Datel makes a product called FreeLoader that will work before update 3.2. Nintendo blocked it thereafter.

Well i bought a game called 2k8 basketball here in philippines, but i bought my xbox on australia, then i tryed my game and it said, ( The disc's region code is incorrect for this consol ) so how can i...


Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en-84-t.html

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

Hi we brought wii games from thailand is there anyway they will play on our australian WII


(If you just want to keep your Wii system normal) Nintendo games are put onto DVD-ROM discs, Australia's and Thailand's DVD region codes are different, so it would not be compatible. Austrailia is in Region 4, Thailand is in region 3.
(If you want to Mod your Wii) However, you could Mod your Wii, most mod chips are able to circumvent region coding and copy protection, which will let you play games created in different regions.

Here are some Pros and Cons of modding your system with a mod chip.
PROS:
You can play back up copy's of your games. You can play games from different regions (Such as you want to) You can play homebrew games. (User created Wii games)

CONS: 1.This WILL void your warranty 2.Some updates may try and Brick your Wii (Make system inoperable, you will have to buy a new one.), always read what people say about the new update before you update if you have a modded system.
3.Keeping your Wii up to date is very important especially when you are playing out of Region disc games, you could brick your system if you don't be careful.

I bought a DVD set from Ireland and it won't play on my DVD player or my Wii. Is there a setting I need to change?


Hi there!
North American TVs, consoles and DVD players play video and games in the NTSC format (region 1), while Ireland's and most of Europe's play in PAL(region 2). You best bet to be able to watch your dvd set will be to purchase a dvd player that plays multi regions (these will be a bit more expensive) or to order a region 2 dvd player from Ireland or somewhere in Europe that uses region 2.

Hope this helps!

I have an Australian region Wii and live in Australia but holidaying in USA. If I get a modchip installed to make my Australian Wii region free will this affect the Wii games that I already have purchased...


It should not. In fact, your wii should be able to play any game from any region with the mod chip. However, you should ask the company that is doing the mod chip install to be sure.

Own wii from china can i use wii fit board from uk.Due to work and having to live in asia purchased a wii in china now back in uk will i be able to add wii fit board purchased here in uk


The Wii has a region lock on it. This means that you cannot play games from any country other than the one that the system comes from. There are some sites that show how to unlock the region code which would them allow you to play any games from any countries.This would of course void your wwarranty if you still have one. If you don't have any esperience working with game consoles like the Wii you should then contact a local shop and get them to do it. Your local console retailer will have a list of places that are local to you.

I have a nintendo wii us version and just bought by mistake a wii fitness china version can i get these to work together it won,t reconise the disc.


No sorry. These games are region coded and you have to get region 1 for a US Wii. I suggest trading it in at a game store or selling it on a site like ebay.
