Okay the ps3 meant not be able to play burned disk like if you download I am legend and you burn it. Sometimes it might not work on the Ps3. The PS3 was actually built for gaming blu-ray.
But it can still play bought dvds

I cant unlock my ps2 console to watch a region 1 dvd and ive tried some unlocks but they wont work


make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
1.Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under
custom setup.

2.When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

3.The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

4.Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

Unlock uk ps3 region coding please


you can't unlock the region coding in your ps3.

All the PS3 games are region free. That means it dosent matter where you bought the console, or where you buy your games, they will all be compatible.

There are a few things to be aware of though.

First the games still exist in PAL, or NTSC versions. That means if your are using and older TV witch does not have HDMI support, some games will not work correct, you may experience off colors, or black white screen or other odd things. If you use a new TV with HDMI there is nothing to worry about. since using HDMI signals there is no suchs things as PAL, or NTSC. (this i got while surfing the net...don't know if its true)

if you import a game from another region. You must also buy DLC from that region. meaning if you bought a japanese game you'll have to buy a japanese dlc. if you buy an american dlc or any other dlc it won't work. so buying other region games almost guarantees that you won't be playing any dlc for that game unless you know how to set up psn account in those regions. that part is easy but setting up an account so that you can buy is not since it'll ask for credit card info and it has to match with your billing address....i.e. you are setting up a japanese account but using a uk address for credit card billing... wont work

Third. Some games have region locked online play. witch means if you import a US game, you will only be able to play online with other people who have the US version.

finally The bluray movies are still region locked. you will be able to find some that are not. so unless you find those that are not region locked you will not be able to watch US movies on your UK PS3. of course this goes for dvd too since they are all region coded

My ps3 wont play europ movies


Movies use a Region code. For North America we use the NTSC configuration which allows 30 frames per second and the European code is PAL which limits it to 24 frames per second, while the difference is minimal, US DVD players cannot read Europe's DVDs and they can't read ours.

Region code blocks DVD


Hi, you have to delete de region coding on your DVD, by using a computer (either a mac or PC, or linux) then you can play it. However, if the format is not the same (PAL&NTSC) it's gonna be impossible : for instance, if your PS3 is NTSC, you wont be able to playback PAL content, however, I think it might be possible to the opposite for PAL PS3 owners, since every PAL DVD player can read NTSC (but practically, none of NTSC player read PAL ...) Sad indeed mate.

Its a pain in the *** willing to try converting PAL to NTSC. You better forget it .... However, if its just a region code issue, as I said first, you can just backup it up deleting the CSS (it's illegal... whatever) and burning the region-unlocked movie to a blank DVD and play it ^^

I bought a season of pokemon from ebay and when I put it into my ps3 it said PAL broadcast standard is not supported. my tv isnt old I got it two years ago.What do I do?


PAL: this is the region code all dvd's are encrypted with, it means depending on where you live its most likely you can only play your regions dvd's, it should say on the back what region your disk is, this site says what regions are where. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD_region_codehope this helps, but there is nothing you can do if your player doesnt support the region.

DVD region code lock unlocking on PS3


this is for people who really wants to watch there dvd movies no matter what region it is on a pal ps3 all you have to do is burn it onto a dvd-r and make that dvd region free, below are instructions on how to do that

ok i'm not sure if this will work on an NTSC ps3 console.

software required
dvd decrypter
dvd regionfree
dvd fab platinum 5 (you can use this software with the dvd region free without the dvd decrypter program but i don't do it this way, i like to do it the long way)

instructions
1. after installing all software load dvd region free and dvd decrypter
2. extract the entire movie into a seperate folder
3. run dvd fab plat 5 select movie folder and away you go

alternatively just install dvd region free and dvd fab plat 5 and do it all in one go with this software i've never done it this way before because i think it may not take out the region code doing this method but again i'ved never tried and it is alot faster

note: these software is very basic to use so i didn't go step by step on how to do what you want it to do

this i've tried this and tested and it works, i recommend doing it this way, it will benefit you, because then it will become a backup of the original copy incase something happens to it, and then you can't even play it anymore.

hope this helps everyone
