Wii USB not working

Hi there,

Just bought the new Guitar Hero and I went and plugged in the Microphone and it does not work in either of the USB openings. I know that a few months ago I played the American Idol game and the USB worked just fine.. Could they have turned off some how or could it be that the Microphone is bad??? Any help or solution would be greatly appreciated!!

I had the same problem but i found out if you only have 2 remotes and you use them for the guitar and the drums the mic wont work.
you have to use one of the remotes for the microphone
first unplug your wii console then hook up the mic to the consol
turn the wii on and use the remote for player one to activate the game without the other instruments connected.
after you get the game started it will recognize the microphone. then connect the other remote to which ever instrument you want to use. you have to have three remotes to use the guitar the drums and the microphone

From the Activision Support Site:

If your microphone is not working then please check to make sure that the microphone USB plug is firmly plugged into the USB port. If the microphone is firmly plugged into the USB port then go into the game and make sure that you are setting it up properly. The player using the microphone must have a Nintendo Wii remote connected to the console. Check your game manual for game-specific configuration settings.

My best solution is to get a small fan and let it blow into it but don't blow in yourself cus you saliva can make it worse.

and if that didn't help use the back of a hair dryer if you have one.

if that dosent work then i can't help you

Do you realize that you need a wii controller to be logged in for you to be in use of the controller?
Just log it in (unplugged) and plug the mic into the USB slot at the back of the wii.
