My husband has just fitted a new dvd player in our 2003 Discovery 2,But it is saying invalid region.He bought the dvd from Ebay & I was sent from the USA.Do we need some sort of reset code??


DVD players designed for the US are set for Region 1 and cannot be used with DVD's that are from other regions such as Great Britain and most of Europe which use Region 2 DVD's . What you need is a "Region Free" player which plays all regions or a player that plays your specific region. We live in the US but watch many British DVD series so use.a Region Free player as they are Region 2 and we are in Region 1.

maybe you can return the player or at least get some sort of credit for it towards the correct region player. If you are unsure of your region, just Google it.

What region code is my jvc DR-MH30S recorder, and can it be made region free? regards Alan


Asuming you bought in the UK it is region 2. There is software to unlock the region code but this was being sold as a CD on ebay and I really can't recommend that you down that route. James

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?


I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on: http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

PSP umd region code


yes, try changing region to region 1 as it is possible the umd (disk you bought) is designed not to run unless the region matches. you'll probably have to change it again if you want to read disks from different regions.
my kids have the psps on their holidays at the moment back tomorrow, i will check the restore menus tomorrow for you and see if there is any other changes possibley needed,
also it is worth a try but try changing xmd to umd disk ( eventhough this is for access to memeory usually for usb connection, although it could be something to do with ver 3.71) note youl have to change it back to enter usb mode from your computer.
is yours the PSP slim version or standard version, ?

Wii game


the wii is region dependent, meaning that pal games require a pal console and ntsc games require an ntsc console, somewhere on the front or back of the game case it should say what region the game is. you probably just have the wrong region game disk, if so i would advise selling it and buying one for your region, if you have a lot of trouble finding the region code, or anything else, i would advise calling nintendos help line, they are very helpful and will almost always solvee your problem, they sent me a free power supply when mine stoped working. hope this at least helps a little, good luck.
