Play NTSC(U/C) PS2 disc on console which outputs PAL signal

Hi,
I'm from India.The PS2 console i bought in our city outputs PAL signal & plays PAL format discs properly.Recently I received some PS2 DVDs from relatives in US which are of NTSC(U/C) format.When I play the disc, I get a red screen with the message " Please insert a proper Playstation 2 disc ". Is there anyway for the console to read the disc, like some NTSC to PAL signal converter??Please help

Regards,
Hari

I have playstation 2 but it play only pal cds but i want to play ntsc discs on please hope u can help me


Hi there. Sorry to say but Sony has developed PS2's to be region blocked. SO if your PS2 is a PAL region then it will only be able to play PAL region games. There is no real way to allow your PS2 to play NTSC disks unless it is modded.

A PS2 mod in Canada costs up to $30.00.

Please rate and comment, Thank You.

Format disc for playstation 2 I bought some UK playstation disc and I get that message what do I do


It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.

American disc won`t play on my ps2 console in the uk all i get is please insert disc


if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

Playing a european PAL game on a canadian NTSC console


Go to a search engine like www.metacrawler.com and search for "Swap Magic".  The Emotion Engine processor that is reading the data from the game is told not to read certain Discs if the region code does not match the conoles country code. It mayl save a game to the memory card but not play the game or run the movie.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
