  • USA DVD's to Japan?

    Will DVD's I buy in the USA play in Japanese DVD players, or does Japan use a different system?

      Yeah, you need a region free DVD player. I found mine in Akihabara, and it cost around 17,000 yen. Haven't tried to find one anywhere else so I don't know how readily available they are.

          You can google "Code Free DVD" and get a bunch of online shops that sell code free players.

          There is another option, I am happy to report. If you have a DVD burner, you can download the free programs DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter, and copy the DVD. You can make a copy with the region codes and all copy protection stripped out.
