Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

Hi my xbox 360 slim plays most dvd's but some it not play and it says wrong regan code what do i do


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

Will the dvp 311ok play ntsc dvd i am in australia and i am reg 4


As long as the NTSC DVDs are not region coded, and your TV is multi-standard (able to receive NTSC as well as PAL signals via A/V inputs or similar connections), the player should play NTSC just fine through it

I assume this is a PHILIPS player? If so, most PHILIPS DVD players support NTSC playback on PAL TV.

You are correct, Australia is region 4 for DVD standard. The only restriction would be region codes.

XBOX games are region locked.

You cannot play the disc from other regions.

For example, in USA we cannot play games from United Kingdom or Japan.

It is like DVD Movies, which are region locked.

The PS3 Games are not, you can play them from any region.

Try to contact XBOX to see if they can send you a replacement for your original xbox for your region.

God Bless You!

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

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


HI...

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?

Will not play dvd's...it says the region code is not correct!! but games are fine


This is not a problem with your PS3. DVD's come with a region code lock that won't allow the disc to be played if it's in the wrong region. This is a common occurrence when movies are bought off the internet from different countries. There is nothing you can do about it that I know of, save for returning the discs for a different region code. Thanks.

Trying to play dvd This disc cannot be played. The region code is not correct.


The dvd you are trying to play is most likely not for the region in which your PS3 plays them. If your PS3 is a USA Region player then you can only plays disks that are from USA Region.
