Wireless drums for rockband 2 on the Wii dont read on the game..
I Bought the wireless rockband 2 drums for the Wii and the game will not read it. The blue light on the reciever will blink then I push the sync button on it the push it on the drums. Both lights will then stay lit up with a solid blue light. When I turn the game on though it will read my guitar and mike but will not read my drums still.. would love any help on this. Thanks

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.
If the buttons that you have are 1, 2, A, B, then you have the Rockband drums for Wii (the ones for Xbox have X, Y, A, B). You don't need a microphone to play Rockband, you just need to have a Wii remote on when you start the game. That should get rid of the pesky "Can't Detect Microphone" message and let you get to the main game screen to play the rest of the game. Have fun!
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.
I have no problem using my Rock Band 1 drums with RB2. Remember that it will only recognize the drums if they are used at the main startup screen. Also, make sure that if you have more than one Wiimote activated that they reset off (You can only have four items max active at any given time, including wiimotes, ie: Wiimote 1, Drums, Wireless Guitar, Wiimote 2 OR Guitar 2).
To accomplish the above, reset your wii, and don't start Rockband up until ALL the wiimotes' lights go out. Then only use one wiimote to navigate. Finally, when you play the game, use the drums to navigate through the menu screens. If you use the wiimote, it will set you up for vocals only.
When starting up Rock Band, make sure that no more than one Wiimote is activated (two if you are using one for a bass/guitar). If any are, they will over ride the drums and guitar in priority.
Make sure that only the drums, wireless guitar, microphone (controlled by the Wiimote) and 2nd guitar (whether the fender type with built in wireless OR, but NOT AND, a 2nd guitar that uses a Wiimote).
If more than the max number of wiimotes are turned on when you power up the game, reset your console, and wait to start Rockband until the other wiimotes no longer show a light.
Rock Band 1 and 2 both have a maximum of 4 allowable inputs. If you have more than two Wiimotes activated at the time your game starts, it won't recognize all your other peripherals. It's also important to note that you should ALWAYS use the instrument you plan to jam with to navigate through the menu system (ie: Using the the drum pads and the + on the drumset to continue).
I have the full RB1 set up and had no problem using RB2 with the old set. If you need further assistance, please post a clarification or comment here.
Ensure that the receiver is plugged in to the USB port in back of the Wii Console. If the light on the receiver is blinking, too, then with the Guitar turned on, press the white button on the receiver.
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.
