Re: playstation 3

You have to get that specific region dvd player.
And no u cannot change the regional code.

Search for the regional code on the back of ur dvd cover.. should be though 1 through 6.

Hi , have been given Ps3 bought from Amzon USA, it is unable to recognize AUS DVD - blue ray ok - can this bee altered

You'll need to change your region settings.. This can only usually be done 5 times though so don't make a habit of it. If your only using Aus dvds then it won't be an issue.

Plastation 3 wont load games tested blueraydrive in another console and it works everything else works can go on network and internet

It depends on the region that it is playable. I believe the reion code is the problem why it is not playing.

Or there are lots of scatches that the unit is unable to read

My ps3 won't play DVDs in Brazil it says the DVD zone is not suported?

DVDs have reigon codes. A PS3 sold in the US will only play DVDs and Blu-Rays that have a region code of 1. DVDs sold in Brazil have the region code of 4, so they will not work.

Changing region code

you can change the region code with updates but its risky cos once you upload the update for the region code it may not let you play the other region coded games

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3

The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.

Region codes

No, you can't change the region codes. If at all possible I would take it back to the store and slap the salesperson!!!

Failing that, all games are not region coded, so you can play aus games on that machine. It seems the only thing it won't play is some blueray discs.
