PS3 2 years ago we bought a PS3 in Europe (Spain), we will be moving to the US in the summer. how can I make sure that all DVD's, blue-rays, games will work (both the current ones + the new...


Hi and welcome to fixya! I am happy to tell you that all PS3 games are region free so you can use US games on your PS3 from spain. However, DVDs and Blue-ray movies are not so you will need to make sure that they match the region of your PS3 which is region 2.

Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

Baught my PS3 in the sates dont wanna play south african dvds and games


Please go through the booklet provided with your PS3. It will show you what type of DVDs it can play. Make sure that the South African DVDs you are playing are compatible with the one listed in the booklet. Best is to play Blue ray DVD which are slightly expansive but are regional code free. They can be played on PS3 without any hitch.

American DVDs unable to play for my PS3


At this time the region lock on ps3 only includes DVD and ps1-2 titles. Although some games will have the 80028F10 error. Most ps3 and blue ray will play without problems, my only suggestion being that if you are in the US, make sure you get a US ps3.

hope this helps.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

Is there any way I can convert the region on my ps3


Not really. You could rip the DVD on your computer, then burn it to a new DVD without regional encoding.

Or you could install linux to run on your PS3 and use any number of software solutions under Linux: http://www.psubuntu.com/

But you're not going to be able to just play out of region DVDs as-is.
