Region Code: 0xFFFFFFFF Region Free have a friend who had the same problem this is what he did to fix it.some nice fellows over at X-Box Headquarters forums have figured out a way to change the values on the DVD region code on hypervisor exploitable X-Box 360s. Since the region code is directly tied in with the CPU key, for now this will only work on X-Box units with kernel 4532 and 4548. You'll also have to read/flash the flash chip in order for it to work. this might not be the best thing to do if you don't want to void the warranty though. i hope this helps you and have a nice day

Hi my son has bought a game from america and we are in the uk , it wont work , keeps saying not right region is there anything he can do so it plays on his xbox 360 thanks traci


Unfortunately there is not. Games, DVD's, ect, are all region coded and can only be played in the region they are specified. There are some devices that allow you to change the region code 1, maybe 2 times before being permanently locked on that region. Xbox is not one of these types of devices. Hopefully the game that he bought from America is available in the UK or coming soon.

On a side note, there is one expensive option to getting his game to play, but that would require you buying and having an xbox 360 shipped to you from the US. Then he could buy games from either UK, or America and use the appropriate region coded xbox!

Well i bought a game called 2k8 basketball here in philippines, but i bought my xbox on australia, then i tryed my game and it said, ( The disc's region code is incorrect for this consol ) so how can i...


Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en-84-t.html

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

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:

Hi my xbox 360 slim plays most dvd's but some it not play and it says wrong regan code what do i do


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

How to change the region code for a xbox 360 game


You can not change the region code for an Xbox 360 game, you can however change the region acceptance of your xbox 360. But this will most likely make it so you can't play your other games.

Wont play on my xbox 360 new hour of victory game says wrong region wont play


This sadly means the game and Xbox 360 console aren't the same region. (Rather the game is region locked, meaning unless you have a Xbox 360 that plays those regions, the game is non-playable because the console can't read the disc.) There really isn't any solutions for this, other than take the game back to the store and ask for your money back because the region of the game doesn't play on your Xbox 360. Always make sure when buying Xbox 360 games that it's the right region code. (Or that it's a region free coded game) There are a few games like that out, one being Borderlands for example.

If it says PAL on the cover of the game for example, the game covers most of Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Western Europe. (List of common PAL regions can be found here.)
There are a few other region codes for games, so you better make sure you are buying the ones for your region.
Hope this was of some help.

The region code is wrong,x-box 360


go to the settings menu and if you dont see region right away go to system settings. It will either say region or locale, depending on if you have the new xbox experience or not. if you never had xbox live on it and you bought it new you have the old version.
