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.

A lot of time, blue disks have much more problems being read than others. Same with golden disks. Honestly, the best thing you can do, is clean your lense in your ps2 with a Q-tip and a SMALL amount of rubbing alcohal. If its the thin ps2, then all you have to do is open the top and do this. if its the older version of ps2, then you need to open it up, and unscrew the top of the drive to do so, then you will see the lense. I used to have this problem frequently. Andn this is how i solved it. however, its a temperary fix, and you will keep having to do it. honestly, if its already starting to do this, you will probably in the future have more trouble with even silver disks, and black (ps1) disks. If you just bought this ps2, i would suggest gettingg your money back. if you got it for free or something similar... you might just want to either get a new drive (if its an old style one) or buy a new one alltogether if you want to not have to go in and clean the lense every 2 weeks.
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.
the disk may be damaged , If it has the smallest scratch or smudge on the disk the ps2 will not play it. is it the slim or older ps2 ? if it continues to freeze I would return it as damaged. There should really no reason for it freezing unless it has a damaged disk or your PS2 needs cleaned or repaired. Hope this helps and I hope you get it up and going.
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.

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.
