Yes, you do need to use USB for rockband drums for wii, but i don't know how to sync the drums, if they're wireless, if it's a wired set, just plug it in the back of the console, i know how to sync a wireless guitar, on the part you plug into the wii, there should be a tiny white button, and the guitar should have a white button on it, push both buttons at the same time (make sure that thee guitar has batteries and the other is in the wii), if done correctly you should be able to play, if the wireless drums work like that too, than i hope this info helped.
must sync the drums. To do this first take off Battery cover of drums.(leave batteries in) Then press the tiny red button on the front
of the wii console next to the sd card slot for 2 seconds. In the battery compartment of the drums, there is a tiny red
button that looks like the one one the wii. Press it and they should
sync. Now your remote should work.
Turn on the drums (bottom of pads)
Press and hold the Drum Logo until it begins flashing.
press the sync button on the wii as well as on the bottom of the drum pads. That will sync the drum set with your nintendo wii.
look on the instruments for a red button. press this button at the same time you press the red button on the front of your wii console. this should sync the system to the controllers. (the guitar should already be synced since you plug the wii remote into it, but do it anyway)
is there a sync button on the drum set? if so, hit the sync button on the drums and then hit the sync button on the Wii. This will attempt to re-sync the signal of the drum to the Wii console. This has to be done for any new device that gets added to the Wii. Every so often, the Wii will lose connection with the device and has a hard time reconnecting. Sometimes this connection just has to be reset by resyncing the devices. If that doesn't work, you may have a bum product and have to buy a new one. Walmart has a replacement plan starting around 5 bucks depending on the product where, should your product fail within a year, you can order a new one on their site free of charge and have it shipped to the store for pickup. I recommend this for any high price console peripheral. So basically, my advice is to try and re-sync the drum set to your wii via the sync switches on the 2 devices. If that doesn't work, consider replacing. I hope this helps.
For me it was the white box that connects to the back of the wii. I tried everything from changing batteries in the guitar, to pressing white button on guitar, to restarting while holding white button down to screaming at the wii. Then I bought a new rockband guitar at best buy and the new guitar did not work until I swapped the white box (dongle?) that connects to the back of the Wii. One is for the drums and the other is for the guitars and mic. Hope this helps.
