Hi if your using original disk then you dont have to worry, regarding power its common that 240 volts devices has a autovolt feature you should try to take a look at the back of the console and if your ps2 is 120v or 110 you should use a transformer if your putting it to 220v outlets because if you dont your ps2 will be ruined, thankyou and have a nice day and Godbless you

Just bought a playstation 2 hitman cotracts game from america,but when i insert the disc it says insert a playstation or playstation format disc.are the games from america different to australia.if not how...


No, the American Ps2 game will not load on Australian one because in Australia the TV system mode is PAL and the in America its NTSC standard.You can't load any game until your Ps2 is modded.You can buy a modulator than can convert PAL to NTSC and vice versa.

American disc won`t play on my ps2 console in the uk all i get is please insert disc


if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also

Have you ever gotten the games to work? Possibly the games you have are for the wrong region (region 1 is north america, region 2 is europe + australia, region 3 is asia). Each PS2 is set to work only with 1 region, and only the games for that region will work in the ps2. So, say you have game x and game y... If game x works in your ps2, and game y doesn't, it is possible game y is for the wrong region... You could try taking your stuff down to your local gamestop, and they might be able to help you determine what region your ps2 and games are.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

My PS2 does not read game DVDs but plays DVD films


You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com

Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.

Ps2 problem


Perhaps it is a knock off?

If you bought at a reputable games retailer it should not be or if it came in the pack with the console it should not be a knock off.
Your best option would be to get in contact with SONY or take it to a games store and say you bought a short time ago and it doesn't work with some of your games and see what happens! :)

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.

Ps2 region disk


Hi Helena,

The NTSC , I think NTSC stands for National Trade Security Commission, either way they implemented Region locks. You need to get on Ebay and buy you a PS2 that is NTSC-PAL to play your UK Games. The one you bought here in America is a NTSC-U/C. Same thing goes for all DVD players in the world.

Playing a european PAL game on a canadian NTSC console


Go to a search engine like www.metacrawler.com and search for "Swap Magic".  The Emotion Engine processor that is reading the data from the game is told not to read certain Discs if the region code does not match the conoles country code. It mayl save a game to the memory card but not play the game or run the movie.
