    Hello.

    I have a North American v12 slim PS2, and I've been looking for a region free disc in order to play some region 3 DVDs that I recently bought. I'm not great at tinkering and would like to avoid mod chips as much as possible. I'm not looking for expensive all-in-one software for cheats and playing back-up DVDs either, just a simple software in the $10~$20 range that'll turn my PS2 into an all-region DVD movie player, that's it.

    I have discovered that DVD Region X and many others will not work on the new slim PS2. I have found out though about a software called Zone Free DVD on many UK/NZ sites, that is said to be able to work on all PAL PS2 versions including the new slimlines, but I have been unable to find out whether or not it works on North American NTSC versions as well.

    Does anyone know if Zone Free DVD will work on my PS2, and if not, are there any other software you know of that WILL work? Thanks in advnace.

    you not only have to worry about the PS2's ability to play them. But also if your TV can support the region. I had a region free movie player for my Xbox (DVD RegionX) and had a few movies that the TV would just display a message of "video mode not supported"
    they can of course be converted to NTSC but i have no idea what the quality of the output would be. Also if you own a DVD player you may want to look around the internet as there are many of them now that people have found hacks for to make them region free.
