Re: Rock band 2 disk wont read in ps2
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.

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.

We had the same problem on a PS2 (thin) that is several years old. We tried exchanging the disk - same problem. We have a lot invested in the PS2 system and just bought several new games for it for Xmas so we decided to buy a new PS2 and see what happened. The Rock Band game works perfectly in the new PS2 with no issues.
it's your laser with something like dust keeping it from reading the discs. Just get a simple CD cleaner kit, one that has the little brush on it and then of course put some solution on it. Rubbing alchol will due. This happens to everyone eventually.
Should do the trick.
If it doesn't do it after playing the cleaning disk three times for around 10 secs each, then you may want to open it up and put clean the laser lens directly with a rubbing alchol soaked que tip and a dry one. For more instructions on how to open it do a search on fixya and there is one guru who goes into great detail about this.
you might want to get a long q-tip and gently put alcohol on it and swap the lens.then have another tip ready to dry off. ps2 games are basiclly a dvd . and you can find info about a lawsuit that sony has against them for not being able to read dvd's.
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.
