Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

The disc's region code is incorrect for this console


There are two types of Xbox, NTSC and PAL. Games sold at U.S. play in NTSC consoles, games from europe and some other countries play in PAL, the only thing you can do is buy that game for NTSC consoles (buy the game inside u.s.). Try to sell the one you have on ebay to people at other countries.

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.

Cant play NTSC games


If you can't play NTSC games then that means your xbox is probably a PAL version. There's not really much you can do about this except to buy PAL version games :(

BTW, NTSC and PAL refer to different regions. NTSC Is north america, while PAL is usually europe.

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.

For further information you can also take a look at this Microsoft support document

When i play the game gears of war2 on my xbox360 an error ocurrs your xbox360 region code does not match


you need a new one.no other solution for that.
but this time becareful when you buying because YOU MUST KNOW YOUR XBOX IS IN WITCH REGION.
on the game title uper right side you will see like
PAL or NTSC or UC or *** or REGION FREE written on it.
if you dont know any thing then just buy region free games.(by telling the shop keeper)or if your console is pal then only pal if ntsc then only ntsc if ..bla bla bla

Which type of cd does xbox 360 arcade accepts pal or ntsc


It depends on the region, if you got it from the UK it will play PAL games, it's American it'll play NTSC game, there are some games though (Ghostbusters comes to my mind) that work on either though.
