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.

1. Unplug the drum receiver.
2. Turn off the PS3.
3. Remove batteries from the Drum Controller.
4. Plug in the Drum Receiver.
5. Put batteries back in drum revceiver.
6. Turn on PS3.
7. Hit the PS button on the Drums once. (all 4 lights should flash)
8. Push and hold down the button on the Drum Receiver for about 5 seconds, then release.
9. Push the PS button again on the Drum Controller. At this point the drums should be assigned a port and synced up.

All this is in the instructions that came with the game.

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

Wii rockband drums having problems with switching it to on.


I have a harmonix wireless guitar and a wired drumset. Neither will respond, though they both show a blue light. I'm playing rockband 3 with rockband 1 instruments. Only the mic works and I have no idea why. Of course, I've tried new batteries in guitar, re-synced, powered on and off.. to no avail. Suggestions? Its a new in box set.

My guiter will communicate with the frontman but it doesn't control the playstation. I have tried every way undere the sun to sink and it seems to sink with the fromtman cause it shows what color i am...


1. You need 3 other controllers besides the Nyko guitar (they can be the rockband instrument set, or just any PS3 controllers. I used a DS3 a RB guitar and GH3 guitar)
2. You need all 3 of the controllers assigned to the PS3 taking up spot 1-3 except the Nyko guitar (goal is to assign the Nyko to 4 or higher)
3. Plug in the Nyko dongle and attempt to link with the guitar (it will most likely make the Nyko button turn red which is the color that won't play)
4. Turn the switch on the dongle back and forth once or twice ending on GH setting letting the guitar link on it's own (It may not assign correctly on the first try, but keep switching between Rockband setting and GH setting. Always end on GH, because it will work with Rockband on GH setting)
5. After a few times it should link and allow you to play

Problem is the firmware of the PS3 (V3.10 or higher)

Make sure that the Guitar Wireless receiver, microphone, and drums are connected to the USB hub provided with Special Edition. Ensure that the foot pedal is connected to the drum set. Then, perform the following:

1) Ensure you have fresh batteries in the Wireless Guitar
2) Insert receiver into USB hub
3) Turn on Guitar via switch on back.
4) If both the guitar and the USB receiver is flashing blue, then press the guitar logo button until flashing blue light on the receiver stops flashing.

Good luck!

Can't use drums for rockband on guitar world tour


The instruments for Rock Band and GH:WT are compatible on the PS3 and the Xbox 360, not the Wii. Blame Activision, the creators of GH:WT - they went a different route with hardware for the Wii that made things incompatible.
