Guitar Hero World Tour PS2

I purchased the bundle for guitar hero world tour for my kids for PS2 slim version. They have gone to play the game and it comes up with "can not read disc". This is the only disc it does it with. We also have guitar hero legends of rock which works like a dream. Please Help before I go crazy.

    I have done the whole check that it is ps2 disc and cleaning the disc and as I have said it is the only disc that the ps2 does this with. I have tried cleaning the lens a little but afraid of doing permanent damage.

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.

I would make sure you have the PlayStation 2 disc first. You may have purchased another version of the game by mistake. Then I would look for physical damage on the disc, scratches or dirt. These are very likely to cause an error read. Make sure you clean the discs properly moving with straight likes from the center to the edge of the disc, never like you would clean a vinyl disc. Lastly, does your PlayStation 2 give you read errors with other discs? You may have a faulty PS2 or a dirty lens. Hope this helps!

    I meant "straight lines".

  • luisalisferr Dec 28, 2008

    If this is the only disc you are experiencing problems with chances are you have a damaged or faulty disc. If you don't see physical damage to the disc then it is a manufacturing error and you need to get a replacement disc.

Trying to get guitar hero world tour on ps2 but keeps going to browser, works fine on a friends ps2, what am I doing wrong ?


i had the exact same problem. the original ps2 doesnt have "up to date" hardware in it, so sometimes there are disks that it cant read. what you have to do is take it to the place where you bought it and ask for a different disk. they may give you a hassle, so be prepared to push through with your argument that "the customer is always right"

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2


We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!
