Hi my xbox 360 slim plays most dvd's but some it not play and it says wrong regan code what do i do


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

My xbox wont read any discs


Maybe1)The Xbox 360 does not recognize a disc in the DVD drive

2)Disc is "unreadable" to the Xbox 360

3)DVD drive tray will not respond or move

Every issue has its own unique cause. A disc with scratches could be an issue. You should have no problems getting this issue fixed. See if another disc does the same thing.
It most likely says "Unable to read disc" because it probably can't read the disc! If I were you, I would try cleaning off the disc you are using, then putting it back into theXbox 360 and try again. It may also be scratched repetitively, which cannot be fixed and you may need to buy a new copy of the disc.The disc is the incorrect region - DVDs come in formats called "regions." These regions match the region specified in the software of the DVD player. Some games also have these regions. If the region of the DVD and that of the player do not match, the disc will not play.

Put a game in and it said region code for disk incorrect


First Step

Check the formats here supported by your Xbox 360 drive.

If the DVD's region and your Xbox console's region do not match, then you may face this issue of region code error.

If it does match, check playing other discs or the same disc in another player which would help you ascertain the exact nature of the problem you are facing.

I have a PAL machine which allows me to play Region free NTSC-US, NTSC-Japan games.

Xbox 360 won't play any dvd's


I would like to ask if you are using DVD+R media?
If so make sure you enable DVD-ROM booktype:
www.liteonamericas.com/us/download_utility.htm"
Unfortunatly the Lite-On tool must be used before burning each DVD+R,it just takes a second though.The HP's auto set DVD+R to DVD-ROM.
Difference in formats:
DVD-R uses a quasi DVD-ROM booktype and has high compatiblity with DVD players.Disadvantages :you cannot burn multi-session data.
DVD+R can be set to DVD-ROM booktype for higher compatibilty.Cons:some older DVD players don't support DVD+R and some DVD+R writers don't support the DVD-ROM booktype.
You can also try to use DVD+R for both

Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?


This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Xbox 360 HDDVD Player


Hi,

Check the region code of the disc against your consoles region code, if they don't match it won't it.

Also have you installed the updates for the HD Player, if not either download them via Xbox live or download them from here and copy to disc:
