Hi scorpion013,

PS2 games are region locked which means that disks from other regions won't work on your PS2. If it keeps displaying that message it means that you need to buy the region appropiate disk.

Sorry about the inconvinience.

make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
1.Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under
custom setup.

2.When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".

3.The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".

4.Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

the ps3 does have region coding regards to playing DVDs and there are no hacks for the same..

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 30, 2018 | 603 views


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.

DVDs have reigon codes. A PS3 sold in the US will only play DVDs and Blu-Rays that have a region code of 1. DVDs sold in Brazil have the region code of 4, so they will not work.

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.

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.

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 29, 2018 | 381 views


Unfortunately not, as it stands the only thing the PS3 is region free on is the games. All regional BD and DVD are locked to your region. Even if there was a hack to play region 1 dvd's on a region 2 ps3, sony would patch it up as soon as it was made puclic.

However you could use region free dvd's which will work on the PS3. There is plenty of software for PC which will copy your existing DVD's and remove the region lock. However, I am not sure on the legalities of it.

You need to perform a Firmware Update.

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 08, 2018 | 990 views


This is a software compatibility issue, it's easily fixed by connecting the PS3 to the internet, logging into your PSN account and running a system update. It will update the software and get you a new encryption key. It's part of the movie's copy protection.

Sony Playstation... | Answered on Oct 08, 2018 | 431 views


Once in awhile, the keys just expire. To renew it, go to SYSTEM UPDATE in your PS3s xmb.. 2nd tab over top option..click it and it will ask you to select a method. Update via internet. Go through this you should be good to go.they usually expire after 12-18 mos. Heres a link to the manual..
