In Singapore, your region is considered "Asia." The simplest way to play Wii games on a Wii from a different region was using Datel's Freeloader disc, but unfortunately Nintendo has patched their firmware blocking the use of this. There are other ways to modify your console to play games from other regions, but all carry a high pricetag and a great deal of risk, and Nintendo can patch the firmware to detect your modification and stop your system from working. You might consider importing a Wii from the UK using Play-Asia.com or a similar retailer. Best of luck!

Is there a way to get PAL format disc to load on a PS2 machine?


PAL formats are for overseas and not the USA. The line count is different that what we use here in the US.

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.

Format disc for playstation 2 I bought some UK playstation disc and I get that message what do I do


It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.

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

I have a ps3 40GB.How do i make it play dvd's i bought from Holland or PAL format disc Jenny Canada


Canada & U.S. use NTSC protocols for dvd playback, different frame rates, etc. Europe is mostly PAL. not compatible. get online with PS3, and see if they have a patch that supports PAL frame rates. if not, go to e-bay and find the dvds in region 1 format U.S./Canada.
good luck!

US version Wii Fit and Australian Wii console incompatibility


I don't think changing the TV would make any difference because the console isn't even loading up the disc. To play an NTSC game you would have to use a console from an NTSC area like the US. I'm sure Japan is NTSC as well. I've heard about Freeloader. Ever since I bought an Action Replay cartridge for my N64 I've never trusted Datel (who manufacture Freeloader). It really mucked up my N64. On the other hand I know many people who use Datel products and the like with no probs. I suppose if you got nothing to lose then try Freeloader.

Sorry I could'n t be much more help

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.
