Question about Sony PlayStation® 2 Console

Disc read error

I just bought the new Guitar Hero world tour game and it won't work, it keeps saying "disc read error". All my other games still work fine though! I used some air spray duster to try to clean my console, but it still won't work. I even exchanged the game twice! What is the problem? And what can I do to fix it? Please help!

Most likely from you playing burnt discs on your PS2 which tricks the laser to work on those discs, it's like a habit devoloping, you need another PS2.

Guitar Hero World Tour PS2


If you have old ps2(fat one) or some of the older slim models they are unable to read the new dual layer discs like GHWT. You can send your ps2 back to sony to reformat it to be able to read these new discs for about $50. There is currently a class action lawsuit against sony and activision for not being upfront about this problem.

Disc won't spin. won't read disc


Have you tried other discs? If so it could be that your laser crapped out. It happens sometimes with no warning. Or if someone really used the system a lot with the guitar hero thing - that kind of intense use can burn em out. I've repaired these for years & have seen this before.
Above all though, make sure your disc is CLEAN with no scratches. If another disc will play then you know your laser is good. You could try the disc on a friends machine & see if it works there.
I can only give suggestions as I cannot see the problem occur & don't have all the details.
Good luck
