ROCK BAND PLEASE HELP!!?
i got rock band for my daughters ps2. we put in the disc and it could not read it and we kept trying it and put other games in it and they would read but rock band would not. i took the game back and switched it out for a new one and got it home and it did not read either. this ps2 is a yr old it is the slim line one silver so it is a newer ps2. we bought need for speed undercover the new one and it worked too so can anyone please help me figure out why the rock band did not work? in case you guys ask yes it was for the ps2. i need to know i took it back and i still want to get it for my daughter. so if you guys could help that would be great. thanks!

make shaw its not a ps3 game, not trying to be patronizing but ive had 3 people do that brought ps3 games and try to put them in ps2, its true sony are rip off merchants, my advise is not to get a wii ether go for a xbox 360, he will love you for ever. the download content alone you can get for rock band1/2 and guitar hero world tour is worth it
Here are the tips to get Rock Band work on the ps2:
Clean the disc well.
Run another disc in the PS2 for about 5 minutes, then try the Rock Band disc.
Plug in a standard controller, navigate to the browser screen, and if the PS2 reads the disc, simply select it with the controller.
Insert a copy of Rock Band Track Pack (PS2) and let it run until it gets to the Harmonix screen. Quickly switch this disc for the Rock Band disc, and reset the console.
Insert the disc so that the "K" in Rock Band on is pointed at roughly 6 O'clock. If the disc isn't read, then open your PS2 and rotate the disc one hour to the right. Repeat this until it is working or until it is back at 6 O'clock.
Be careful with your Rock Band disc as some of them barely work to start with, and you don't want to damage it more.
Save your receipt because if it doesn't work at all you will want to return it.

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.
iv had a simular problem with that befor u will find that ur lazyer is gone i dont no how much they cost to replace but i dont think its to expensive and if u cannot repair it ur self ur going to have to take it into a gaming store to get it repaird . matt
Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.
try to wipe the rock band cd with a dvd cleaner found at computer stores and attempt at it again, if doesn't work try to find if the problem is within the ps2 not the cd try to indicate the what's wrong with the ps2. Then repost here.
