Hi! :D

I recently aquired a 3DO complete in box , it is a japanese version. :)

But it does not play any of my PAL / US Games.... i did not try Japanese games because i do not have any at this moment.. :cry:
It also does not play CD-R backups..

But i read on the internet that the 3DO was region free so what is the problem here? , i do not understand why it will not play the games.
Am i doing something wrong? :?

Basically you're saying it doesn't play discs at all? Sounds like a bad drive. Can you play a music cd? Also, what country are you in? There's a chance the system isn't getting the right amount of power, if you're using a converter.

Ah you might be right! , i am using a converter indeed because i live in the Netherlands , so i use a stepdown converter > 220 to 100 V
But on the back of the 3DO it says that it needs 100 V so i must use this converter right?

Also it does not read music CD's... :(

Well then hypothetically it should be working. I'm guessing your laser is shot. Perhaps. Hrm.. does the disc drive spin up with you put a disc in? Do you hear it trying to read? Does it make any weird noises?

No the drive is not doing anything , no spinning , no noise , but it opens and closes perfect , and the intro animation and sound etc is also working fine .

Hrm. Could be the drive motor, if the disc isn't even spinning. Maybe some people here with more experience with the system can give some better advice. I personally would take it apart and see what it's doing (and not doing).
