Because most software written for Arabic machines need the Arabic rom to work and non-Arabic machines don't have this Arabic rom. In a few cases, the software will partially work (only the part in English or eventually French), but in many cases the software will freeze at starting, because the Arabic rom can't be found.

mmmm....
dose this also happen to other MSX computers? as in Japaneses software wouldn't work on a European machine or something similar to the Arabic software and other msx mashines...

It can also happen with Korean software, when it needs the Hangul characters, but a Korean fan has written a version of Hangul BASIC that can be used on any non-Korean machine, what makes the Korean software more compatible.

The problem is different with Japanese software. It will run on any non-Japanese machine (except the Japanese version of Metal Gear 1), but the Japanese characters wil in some cases not be displayed correctly. For the Kanji characters, the solution is a Kanji cartridge.

So, by analogy, a non-Arabic machine can become compatible with Arabic software if an Arabic rom/cartrige is first added to the machine.

quick question:
can SFR1M44-U100K USB Floppy Drive Emulator work on the AX350II machine?
