Default XBox (DVD)

I just bought the DVD add on for my XBox (in Scotland), can anyone tell me if it will still work when I arrive in Australia? Also will my DVDs still work on Australian DVD players?

Cheers

YOu will need to get a new connection for the xbox to link to the power supply here, they use a diff shaped plug and as far as i know DVD's still work, but not 100% sure, altho standard Vids are the same

DVD bought in the UK will work, some DVD bought in Australia will work, most wont.

pick up a cheap DVD player in oz and have it chipped for world dvd playing.

When you get to Aus, look at the omni range of Dvd players, they start at around $179.... most of these are multi region (will play all zones of dvd disks).. so they will play uk dvd's (region 2) and Aus dvd's (region 4).. plus the other zones like US (region 1), plus will play vcd's, svcd's etc, etc. I'm quoting omni because that's what I own, plays anything.. no zoning. Other machines you can hack them.. there are whole sites dedicated to this/ web boards... telling you how to do it.

so if you want to bring your own dvd player with you.. try searching the net for hacks to de-code the zoning. (unless the player you own already is multi... check your instruction book).. the chip in your player can be hacked, to get rid of the zoning... to make it multi region (you can do it yourself instead of taking it into a shop... you don't add a chip.. you hack the thing you've already got ). There are loads of sites out there for lots of the brands ( also try searching on" DVD hackz" besides "hacks")You might find one for your brand of player.. most of the big brands.. there are hacks for them. Forget paying money for some shop to it.. waste of money...do it yourself if you can find the hack for your brand/model of player

cheers
