Re: rock band wont work keeps saying no data disc can not...
We had the same problem on a (thin) PS2 that is several years old. Exchanged the disk for a new one and still said no data. We have a lot invested in the PS2 system and just bought several new games for Xmas so we decided to buy a new PS2 and see what happened. Rock Band now works perfectly with no issues on the new PS2.

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.

It sounds like you got a damaged disk. If other games work & this one does not then you will probably have to return it for a replacement. Sorry. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
Peuhayd is pretty close. It may be due to the PS2 not being able to read the scripts on the Disk. If you can, get a newer one and see if that works. The version may be old and there might be a problem with the info getting onto the PS2.
Email me at email@example.com if it doesnt work.
There is a piece dust on the CD reader eye. there is two ways to fix this. 1. bye a disk cleaner any wal-mart or 2. take the unit apart. and clean the tiny glass laser eye your self using a cotton swab and alcohol. WARNING! never take any thing apart while it is plugged in. O TRY PLAYING A DVD IN IT AND SEE IF IT WORKS OR NOT IF NOT THEN YOU KNOW ITS DUST ON THE LASER LENS.
