Wii and Gamecube controllers do not work for Wii

I plugged in my Wii today and tried to play Rock Band 2 but all my controllers were not responding. Even with Gamecube controllers it was as if there were no controllers plugged in. None were responsive and even when it eventually got to the main menu the little hand never showed up.

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but have you synced your controllers lately?

Open the little drop over under the disk tray (the place where you put the SD card) and press and hold the red button in there, open the battery cover for the wiimote and press and hold that little red button. Wait till both the controller and the system respond. Basically, they have to find eachother again.

I hope this helps.

Caid.

Will the Nintendo Wii control work with the Game Cube games? I can't find a button to play the game. I am trying to play Ratatouille on the Game Cube with a Wii control.


Well that depends if your trying to play gamecube games on the gamecube or the wii?, i assume your doing it on the wii because anyone would know that a wii control wouldn't work on a gamecube, not impossible, just very hard

wii remotes do work with the nintendo wii on wii games and on gamecube games, but it is better if you use a gamecube controller and plug it into the to holes under the flap, pictured below, hopefully.

How do I get the wired microphone to work for Wii Rock Band 2?


you must plug in a controler to control that player, plug in a usb controler and the player will be able to join in, this is also the same on the xbox 360, at first we just plugged in the mic and it did not work, after plugging in the controler and the mic, all was well. Good luck, hope this helps

Rock Band 2 Wii bundle song selection problem


You must beat songs before they can be unlocked.
Play the career mode and beat some songs.
Later on, these songs will become available.
If they do not appear once the career mode is beaten, contact the company because some disks end up being badly burned and are missing songs.
Regards

Rockband TrackPack


Unfortunately, the guitar that comes with the Guitar Hero does not work with Rock Band or Rock Band 2. Rock Band, as you mentioned, recognizes the Wiimote as the controller for the microphone.

Unfortunately, you will have to get a guitar that is specifically designed for Rock Band.

I know this isn't the answer that is popular, but if you vote for my solution, please vote at least "Thanks for Trying".

Thanks for using Fixya!

Rock band 1 drums will not work with rock band 2


I have no problem using my Rock Band 1 drums with RB2. Remember that it will only recognize the drums if they are used at the main startup screen. Also, make sure that if you have more than one Wiimote activated that they reset off (You can only have four items max active at any given time, including wiimotes, ie: Wiimote 1, Drums, Wireless Guitar, Wiimote 2 OR Guitar 2).

To accomplish the above, reset your wii, and don't start Rockband up until ALL the wiimotes' lights go out. Then only use one wiimote to navigate. Finally, when you play the game, use the drums to navigate through the menu screens. If you use the wiimote, it will set you up for vocals only.

Playing Rock Band 2 without a microphone


you have to use the green and red keys on the guitar to navigate the software...not the WII remote if you want to use the guitar.. THe WII remote is ONLY used for the Microphone.

On the drums you use the red and Green drum to navigate for the drum...not the WII remote....

Play rock band for wii without mic, drums and guitar only?


Don't use the controller to navigate, that's the vocalist's controls. Go in and out of menus with the instrument you intend on using, don't use the controller.
