Australia Comes in Region B and USA comes in Region A .

There is NO solution at present to run a different region Movie on a different region PS3

Games are Regional Free so it will play in any regional consoles

Have an aussie ps3 trying 2 play dvd and it says region code incorrect how do i fix this


The PS3s' DVD and Blu-Ray player is region locked. This means that your Australian PS3 can only play DVD and Blu-Ray movies made for the region Australia is in or are region free (region code 0).

For DVD's, Australia is region code 4.
For Blu-Ray, Australia is region code B or region code 2.

Although this doesn't help your current problem, the PS3 is region free for PS3 games (you can play games from any region).

To work around this, I propose either ripping the DVD to your computer, then burning it onto a different DVD or streaming the DVD directly from your computer to the PS3. Streaming is definitely the better bet if you have more DVD's from another region.

To rip and burn your own copy, use a blank DVD disc and DVD burning/ripping software such as Nero.

To stream to your PS3, check out the following:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac

Enjoy your movie (hopefully)!

My ps3 wont play europ movies


Movies use a Region code. For North America we use the NTSC configuration which allows 30 frames per second and the European code is PAL which limits it to 24 frames per second, while the difference is minimal, US DVD players cannot read Europe's DVDs and they can't read ours.

I have a ps3 but says i need to change encription key to play bluray


This can be caused by Region coding. I for instance have an Australian PS3, if I try to play US encoded Blu-Ray it will not work. PS3 games are not region coded and will always work. However the movies are another story. Go to this website and find a region free movie to rent, and see if it still gives you the error. http://regionfreemovies.com/region/free

Unlock the region code to play imported blue-ray movies


Short answer...yes, would you like to invest what would likely be days learning the process? There may be a mod ship out there somewhere, but unless you are willing to modify the PS3 in someway that would likely void any warranties, then you're going to have to find a DVD for your region. A mod without a chip would involve installing linux in addition to the OS that the playstation comes with. I'm sure the process has gotten easier since I last checked, but I found it too painstaking.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

Is there any way I can convert the region on my ps3


Not really. You could rip the DVD on your computer, then burn it to a new DVD without regional encoding.

Or you could install linux to run on your PS3 and use any number of software solutions under Linux: http://www.psubuntu.com/

But you're not going to be able to just play out of region DVDs as-is.
