My region code on my psp is set to japan and need to change it to uk

In order to change your region code, you will need to unlock your PSP, the steps are fairly complicated, but I can post a link for all of the information if you think you'd be willing to try. The problem with unlocking your PSP is that you can potentially brick it.

On my xbox it says that "this disc's region code is in correct for thins console" what should i do?


Sorry to bring bad news but...

You need to get a disc that is correct for your region.

eg..If your Console is from USA then you need USA disc. If it is from Japan you need Japan disc.
If it is from Europe...can you guess?

Xbox's like DVD and Blue ray players are regioned. Meaning they will only play disc from the same region the console was intended to be sold in.

This is because the internet has made the world a lot smaller and easier to get goods from other countries.
People were buying DVD's and games from abroad because they were cheaper than local games and DVD's.
To stop this manufacturers have codes on there players so they can only play local discs.

I hope this helps?

Japan label turns to american label

That sounds like a regional coding thing, check the recorders regional code to see if it is lapan or usa. if it is usa, try switching it to japan, but are only allowed so many changes to region code, and after that, you'll be stuck with whatever region your set on.

Region code not correct therefore disc cannot start . entered film disc onto psp and the above came onto screen.

To change the region code on your PSP, you need to go to NANO options, then ID Storage tools, then Change region. You will have 3 options: Europe, Japan, and America. Then you will be prompted: "Do you want to continue?" click "Yes" Good luck!

What the difference between psp 3004 and 3006 model ? I want to buy psp 3000, but the salesman ask me back which model do i want?

Well my friend the number in the model basically tell the region numbers. Region meaning Hong Kong, NA, Japan, Europe...Australia and so forth. Always remember the ending number determines region.So i think that is why the sales person was asking you about the model.
