    Right she turns on the rockband to just play the guitar or drums and it will say something like: can not detect microphone...does it have to be hooked up to the wii if she isn't wanting to use it and just wants to use the guitar?

    ok i will go reboot system to see if it still requests us to hook the microphone up.....i will be back...thanks!

    ok still not sure if it is working yet or not-we did try to hook up the guitar for the rockband but don't know how to do that either and no directions-there are blue lights blinking but can't figure out how to get them to know work with the game....any ideas on that?

    But to connect the guitar-so it sync's with the wii- don't you have to hold one or two buttons down that is on the guitar--if so we did this held two buttons down, then tried hold each one down at a time....we have tried different ways it will not connect should I reset the game again?

    I assume you don't have the microphone connected when you try with the guitar?

Was your mic hooked up when the system was turned on? The mic is probably signed in. The mic needs to be reconnected and signed out. Or reboot the whole system with what you want to use plugged in only.

    If they are plugin style look for the USB ports. If its wireless, look on the guitar for a little button that would reset the link. Push it with the Wii running and game loaded.

Having problems with Nintendo Wii Beatles game. It allows for only one device (guitar, microphone, drums etc.) to be conntected. When the guitar is plugged in it does not recognize the mic and when the...


I dealt with Beatles Rockband Wii on 2 systems with 2 different configurations.
  1. Wireless Drum kit configuration. The Drum USB Transmitter has 2 additional USB ports, that allow Guitar/mic to be connected, plus there is the remaining USB port on the Wii
  2. Wired Drum kit comes with a 4 port USB hub, connect the hub to the Wii, and connect all instruments to the USB hub.
The Wii will only allow 4 controllers connected at once. So if you have multiple Wii Motes, then you may have to disconnect all but the one used for the Mic player (Press 1 on the Wii mote to unsync or remove the batteries)

Rock Band is a 4 player game, each player taking their own role. They can choose from Guitar, Bass, Drums or Microphone. If your daughter wants to play guitar and sing at the same time, she will need to play a multiplayer game and use 2 Mii profiles, one for guitar and one for singing. 
A single player cannot play 2 instruments using the same Mii either. You must use separate profiles.

Wii Rockband guitar won't work.


you need to have the (3inchX3inch) white box connected to the 4 plug usb connector. also batteries need to be in guitar, then when rock band is on power guitar up(switch on back) and press little button just under the whammy bar, looks like the place "your amp" would be plugged in

Microphone for guitar hero world tour


just asked this same question.
discovered that by removing one of our wii controllers from the drum set that we could use the microphone and the guitar. Guessing that having a 3rd controller would allow for the full band to play together (guitar, drum, and vocals). Thinking that by having 4th controller, we could hook up our other microphone or another guitar.
