Sony jst ripped us off with ps2. u know, always making something not perfect so they could sell a better product, does ps3 sound familiar. im sure something will be similar to ps3, then ps4 comes out, so on and so forth. mostly, i cant play rockstar games in my ps2, the video and audio doesnt match, then it jst freezes on loading scenes. jeeze.

Rock band won't recognise guitar hero 5 guitar


Possible you need to reset the PS3 . Also check if the CD is reading, is compatible and not a pirated version.
Finally check if the parental control is active.

My Ps2 guitar hero plays Guitar hero #3 perfectly fine, but the other one Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's wont play at all. We were not able to get the World Tour to play at all. What gives?


Check the bottom of the disc it may be dirty or scratched. If its dirty then clean it with rubbing alcohol, if scratched you'll have to buy a scratch remover.

Guitar Hero Metallica and Rock Band 2 wont play. Other's will


Just turn the ps2 up horizontly and when you hear the ticks (if its slimline) just tap it against you knee. This will knock the laser a little bit away from the line in the center, and it will read. DONT DO IT SO HARD THOUGH.

Guitar Hero Guitar with Rock Band disc


It depends on which version of Rock band you are playing, Rock band 1 will not work with Guitar Hero guitars at all, but Rock Band 2 on the wii will except them. and for the microphone you have to have a seperate wiimote sync'd up tho count as the controller for the the game to recognize the mic.

Disc read eror


Usually it's not an issue of cleaning the lens, but rather having the laser adjusted. It's not something that's particularly easy to do correctly. You'd be better off paying a professional to repair it for you, but there are tutorials for adjusting your laser online. Good luck!

Guitar Hero World Tour PS2


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.
