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.

If this solution helped you, please rate it as FixYa!

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day.

Kind regards

Your Xbox region code has to match the region code on the video games. Figure out your xbox's country of origin and then only buy games that come from that region. If you are trying to play pirated discs and getting that error message, than they obviously were not pirated correctly.

The disc's region is incorrect. what is mean by this????


Hello,

Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.
