    Will Imports work in Domestic (USA) machines?

    Alright, I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I'm asking you fellow animeonliners to help me out.

    Here's the problem:
    I want to purchase a JPop cd and it will most likely be import, because almost no Jpop cd's are sold in America.

    But I'm not sure if Import cd's will be able to play in my cd player or stereo.


    ----I already have an import DVD and CD, but I'm not sure if those were special exceptions.

    Please help me out?

    Yeah.....thanks. But imports are sometimes more expensive. It doesn't sound like what you gave me was actual help. "Waste" my money, yeah...thanks for the advice.

    Hi. I don't know what Jpop is, But if it's a CD: Everything should be good. The only time I know when you need the systems are when Is like for PS, PS2, XBOX, ect.
    It won't work if it's a game, but a CD yes. If Im wrong just buy a CD player from there.

    Yeah, that's what I thought, that the player rules only were restricted to games. Thanks for your opinion, it does help a lot. (of course I am aware that you are not 100% sure, but still thanks)

    I bought CD's while I was in Australia and they play fine in my CD player and PS2. I beleive DVD's and Games are the only things with the region codes.

    Thanks. Yeah i went to Japan Town, San Francisco today. I saw that the region codes only appeared on DVD's or Music that contained DVD extras. But I didn't buy anything, as the cd was way too expensive. I know an online site that can get it for cheap. But with the opinions you guys gave me and my adventuring to SF has made me more comfortable with purchasing Import DVD's.

    yeah, any cd will play in any cd player in the world, cd's do not have regional coding, only games and movies have these region codings, so no worries.
