Just bought a playstation 2 hitman cotracts game from america,but when i insert the disc it says insert a playstation or playstation format disc.are the games from america different to australia.if not how...


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.

Open tray and insert disk


Try cleaning the disc head, or the laser piece. A cleaner disc can be bought at most stores, or online.

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.

When disc inserted says disc error on screen


HI,
Try a laser cleaning disk, you may have debris on the laser head itself.
Also try different disk formats, such as Games-Music-DVD And bluray.
Find out if it,s reading anything At All.

My PS2 does not read game DVDs but plays DVD films


You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com

Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.

Ps2 region disk


Hi Helena,

The NTSC , I think NTSC stands for National Trade Security Commission, either way they implemented Region locks. You need to get on Ebay and buy you a PS2 that is NTSC-PAL to play your UK Games. The one you bought here in America is a NTSC-U/C. Same thing goes for all DVD players in the world.
