I did what it was explained by ericsnow1 and I made the microphone to appear on the PS3 settings. However, to actually play the game I did not know to to make the microphone work. I did some research and you have to use an actual PS3 Controller to select you mic settings. For example, once you have plugged in you mic, you will need the controller to select songs, difficulty, etc.

I now have a solution. I discovered that although the drums wouldn't sync with the drum peripheral, it would do it with the guitar. So I concluded that it was the wireless drum receiver that was faulty. I live in Australia, so I mailed it back to Red Octane (Reply paid) and received a new one in the mail the very next day! The drums work fine now.

Hi my name is Juan and unfortunately your ps3 is dead what happen is that for some reason it got so hot and the processor stop working when you turn on the ps3 it does a self test and if something is not working right it turns off immediately with a green yellow red light so don't spend your money in another power supply I can guaranty to you is not the power supply I do sell and fix playstations and this is why I know this this problem is common on the 60Gb and 80Gb also in 40Gb but not like on the 60and 80Gb

Red drum broken on guitar hero for ps3


Unscrew that drum and see if you can find a wire that has been cut off. If you do, tape it back together and try it. If it doesn't work, buy a new drum.

Can't play Rockband on my Ps3


Check the batteries in the music equipment. It sounds to me like the batteries are dead in the wireless equipment.

If that doesn't work, your PS3 may need serviced.

Best Regards,

Rock Band Guitars


I dont believe the guitar from Guitar Hero 3 is compatable with Rock Band or Rock Band 2, there is a compatibility chart on Rockband.com that will let you know for sure.

You need a usb hub to connect three, use the first usb for the drums and the second for the hub that connects the guitar and mic
