The disc basically acts as a key to start the engine (GAME) otherwise you could just go rent or borrow games from friends and not pay for them, however the game still plays %100 from hard drive. Also if you take the key out, the engine will turn off.

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.

How to play a scratched disc on xbox 360 or some other consoles


Note: I have only experienced using this trick on the XBox 360 Console.
One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:

a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
OR
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

I purchase a new game today from Best Buy called blob2 and it keep saying unable to read disc.


try other games, if they have the same error message, than that means your CD drive is broken, if not, than it's probably your copy of the game, maybe the game got damaged during shipping, I recommend returning the game to GameStop and get about 95% of your money back and get a new game, or ask a friend to barrow their copy.

Both my NBA 2k9 and NBA 2k10 cannot connect to 2ksports. Can you please help me solve this issue? Because I have some achievements that i need get. Thanks and I look forward to your response.


The online mood of 2k9 is known to have a lot of problems. Theres nothing you can do to fix it. Its even possible that the servers are shutdown considering its such an old game now. (Sports games are consider old after 1 year.)

Cd key for nba 2k11


If you legitimately purchased the retail version of NBA 2K11, you should have the cd key code written on the inside of your game's box. Each key code is unique, so you would have to purchase your own copy of the game to get one, no one can give you theirs.

What is the installation code for nba live 06 for PC


the installation code comes with the game. if you lose it, your only hope is that the manufacturer will be able to provide you with a new one. noone here can provide you with their own or they wouldn't be able to use it for their copy of the game.

I install nba 2k9, but when game loads on my pc its loaded but can't save the profiles.


try to reinstall the game on your default system partition, if your windows xp is installed in C, then you should install it in C:\Program Files\NBA Live 2009, there should be a folder on your My Documents where all your profiles are saved. Check if it you have.

NBA 2K9 freezes up when taking a time-out


Sounds like your laser is going bad, is dirty, or your system is overheating.

If your laser is going bad you will have to send it into a shop for repair.
If its just dirty you can get a can of air and blast it in there and knock the dust/dirt off
be sure to blow all around the unit to clean cooling vents
if its overheating after you clean it it must go to get repair from a repair center
