Hi Pirata1963
Nintendo DS Games are actually region free so they should work.

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.

Plz help me live in australia brought series from usa now cant watch it i have a jvc model spthg51f


Hello
System compactablity is the problem you sufferes now. All set released in US will have NTSC {National Telivision System Committe]; system and is only meant to be used in US. Present sets have both NTSC & ATSC systems. In Australia, the transmission and reciving system is PAL [Phase Alternating Line] as I understands. NTSC set is not compactable with PAL system. You can see discs or video casettes recorded in NTSC system with your set, but the player also must ahve NTSC compactable. You have to choose a multisystem set from there. If so you can now use it in Australia. OK.

We bought the Wii Mario Kart in England and it won't work on our Wii station in the US. We get a message that says "unable to read the disc". What should we do?


It's from a different region, so it won't work at all unless you either:
A) Buy a european Wii
or
B) Mod your Wii to free up the regions.
North America and Japan (as well as some other random places) use NTSC format, while Europe (and other random places) use PAL format. You can't play PAL on NTSC and vice-versa.

Hey reneeandryan,

While Nintendo Wii games are not region-coded, the hardware itself is made in both NTSC and PAL formats. In order for a video game to function with your Wii, it would need to be in the same format as your Wii console. This unfortunately means that video games purchased from NTSC compliant countries, such as the U.S., will not function with the PAL consoles sold in Australia.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Pal or ntsc


Hey abinanth,

NTSC and PAL refer to two different analog TV broadcasting standards. In North America and Japan, PS2's and other electronic devices generally are sold in the NTSC format only, as that is the standard used in those parts of the world. PAL devices, on the other hand, are primarily used in Europe, Australia and portions of Asia.

While NTSC and PAL do share some similar properties, images are not displayed the same way on a TV screen with both formats. What this means for the average consumer is that in order to ensure that a PS2 will work with their TV, it will probably need to be purchased in the format used in their home country.

Please keep in mind that while NTSC-to-PAL/PAL-to-NTSC adaptors do exist, many electronic devices (including PS2's) are still subject to regional lockouts that prevent the use of any media/discs that were not purchased in the same region of the world.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Nintendo Wii


Hey Preksha,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Nintendo Wii is currently available in both the NTSC and PAL formats. Due to fact that the U.S. primarily utilizes NTSC-format devices, the vast majority of Wii's sold through U.S. retailers most likely would be NTSC-compatible models - this would also apply to the video games sold for the console itself. Keep in mind that there may be some exceptions, but they will most likely be limited to specality stores and direct importers.

In order to ensure that a Wii purchased within the U.S. functions overseas, you would need to make sure that the TV it is connected to is capable of supporting the NTSC format and that the video game(s) purchased for the console were obtained/imported through a country that utilizes the NTSC format as well (U.S., Canada, or Japan). Unfortunately, PAL-coded games may not function in an NTSC-formatted console, and visa versa.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

NTSC to PAL


You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US). The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder. Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example: Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want You can go to this link to view other product: http://audiovisual.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/sbs/100304323/16875665.html My father died of cancer 6 years ago and I am also transferring the Hi-8 videos to digital format using PC.
