Well first,

Anything you would have to do make a region-free console would void the warranty. If you are not worried about that, there is a way involving installing user created firmware that is modified to remove the region restriction put on your console.

Check this website for more information.

Also, keep in mind that whatever done to your system is done at your own risk since it voids the warranty.

I amin india and i bought a xbox 360. my xbox i can play pirated disc. However for some games i am getting the message disc code is incorrect for this region. what should i do to make those disc...

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.

In my PES 11 on my xbox 360 , it doesnt start .... when i put in the disc it says region error . SO how do i fix it?????

For the xbox360, the region code on the disc must match the region code in the registry of the dvd-rom drive. The only way around this is to modify your xbox360 so that it plays different regions. This is highly illegal, voids all your warranties and is not at all recommended.

I own a US console (NTSC) and it will only play discs that match with the NTSC code. I can not play a Japanese game (NTSC-J) since NTSC-J is different from NTSC.

Use the following link to figure out which region disc and which region xbox360 you have:

System doesn't read disc when inserted

this can be due to three reasons
first you should know that the ps3 have certain discs they read depending on the region of your ps3. for example a european 3 may read discs with any region code depending on which region it was originally manufactured for.
you should also put in mind that you can check for the region of your ps3 by connecting it to the internet and going to online help under the web in the XMB or going to the carton of your console and looking at the lower right corner(a semi-globe with a number written above, also you can check the region of your disc by looking at the back of your ps3 disc casing(on the side you have playstation 3 written in full,it is usually like a globe sign with a number)
now, the problem might be one of the following and their solutions are given under are probably trying to play a disc with a region code note compatible with your ps3 console system, make sure they match or they are compatible and if not this could be the cause but if they match, try the disc on another system and another disc on your system(this would help you narrow down to know if your console or disc is bad)
2....if it still doesnt work, your console lens is probably bad and it is best adviced that you send it to a repairer or back to sony(if you can)because the lens is packed in a very difficult way that any mistake could damage it permanently and as this could void your warranty.hope this helped you?

I put a game in and it said wrong region code for this console? Help?

Region codes are so the console can only pay discs in the same area. For the US the region code is NTSC, Japan is NTSC-J and for UK it is PAL. Be sure to check your disc label to make sure you are trying to play a game with the matching region for your console.

Put a game in and it said region code for disk incorrect

First Step

Check the formats here supported by your Xbox 360 drive.

If the DVD's region and your Xbox console's region do not match, then you may face this issue of region code error.

If it does match, check playing other discs or the same disc in another player which would help you ascertain the exact nature of the problem you are facing.

I have a PAL machine which allows me to play Region free NTSC-US, NTSC-Japan games.

I want to play the dvds of animation like kungfu panda & madgascar etc.but the message that my ps3 displays is that region code does not match.I bought the ps3 and dvds in Delhi India & my location...

The DVD movie you are trying to play does not match the region code of your player which is your PS3. These movie discs might not be under the same region and you have to comly to the DVD region code settings to make it work. If it says region code does not match, it means that it is unsupported and not compatible with your PS3.

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


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.

check for the region code that you will see on the manufacturer's box of your PSP. facing the front of the box, the region code is located on the left side of the psp box, inside of square icon that has a globe icon with a number at top of it. if you were able to see the code, the region code must match the same code that you will see at the back of the UMD case label.
