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)!

I can't play dvd's from USA


The most likely issue is that the region code setting on your PS3 is not set to the United States region code. To change this:
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from whatever it is to "United States". The region code for USA is 1.

I just bought Weeds season 6 from Amazon.com, now when I put it in my PS3 it says mismatch between disc and player region codes, can I change my region code on my PS3 or is there some other way to get it...


Yes you can change the region code on your Ps3.
1.) Go to BD / DVD Parental Control Region Code (don't ask me why its under parental control)
2.) Change the region code from United States to "Other". If it asks for specific check online to see what region the DVD's are from.

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

Ps3 region codes


No, the only way is to buy a PS3 from the region you are needing. However, if you own the DVD you can make a copy of the dvd using your computer and the program DVDFAB that will play on your PS3 because DVDFAB will remove the region lock. Hope this helps, let me know if you have further questions.

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?


I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on: http://www.blurayregioncodes.com/
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.

Changing the region code


Hi,

You can only change the region code a few times (usually 5), so I wouldn't do it. You should leave the current player at region 1, and buy and install another DVD player and set it to region 4, then you will have 1 for each region you want.
