Could it be that the Rock Band disk is simply defective or dirty? Definately return the CD to the store.

How do u make ur rock band 1 and 2 disk read again on slim ps2


Your Laser is starting to go. Clean the discs, resurface them if they are really scratched, and try blowing some compressed air in and around the laser.

Don't blow the air directly on the laser lens though, it could cause more damage.

if those don't work, you can try boosting the power to the laser (voids your warranty) or get the laser replaced.

Old PS2 will read some games but not all


You can have the lens adjusted at a repair shop for not too much money, but be aware that if your lens is slipping out of alignment it's only a matter of time before it breaks completely. It may be time to replace your system with a PS3 or a new PS2.

Best of luck!

PS2 rock band disk


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.

PS2 wont load PS2 games


you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves hope that helps :)
