Hello, the problem is that your console has a different region lock. Games bought in europe or japan, won't run on an usa console, and opposite. So in order to play, you have to buy only american (ntsc) games.

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.

No, the American Ps2 game will not load on Australian one because in Australia the TV system mode is PAL and the in America its NTSC standard.You can't load any game until your Ps2 is modded.You can buy a modulator than can convert PAL to NTSC and vice versa.

A couple new games i bought won't load. its says the disc is unreconizable. how do fix this i heard there was a password or code to put in, is this true. and whats the code ? and where do i put it in?


Those games that you bought, if they are just normal Xbox games then you have to go to the Xbox 360 settings and make it so you can play normal Xbox games. If they're Xbox 360 then I don't know what to tell you then.
Happy fixing :u)

I have disc that says region codes is incorrect for this console


Hi there

If you buy a gaming console from one country and you buy a game from a different country, the game will not work because the file format is different to what the console supports. i.e You buy a Playstation 3 in America and you buy Hitman in the UK, they will not work with each other. If the game is copied or damaged it will also say "File Format Not Supported" or "Incorrect Region Code".

The only way to fix this problem is if you buy games from the country that the console was bought from or you can also purchase a code that will unlock certain regions so your console should play most games.

Playing of pirated dvd movies in sony play station slim


This may be because DVD movies have a reigion code on the disk and on a pirated disk this code may be removed. When the ps2 fails to find the code, it aborts playing the disk. I believe the regional lockout for games (which i assume you have disabled) is a different system to DVD lockouts.
