Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Halo 3 Special Edition Console

Mic for guitar hero world tour on xbox 360 stopped working

The microphone was working perfectly fine for about a month, and then all of a sudden, one song it worked fine, and the next song it did not all. Please help or give me some things or ideas on what to do to fix this problem. We have tried every USB port and nothing happens still, and we cannot find anything visually wrong with it.

    We just bought a new Guitar Hero World Tour package for our kids. The guitar works, the drums work but the MICROPHONE can't join or isn't recognized.

I had this problem as well but it wouldn't work at all when i got it however i discovered you have to use the regular controller with the mic. just plug in the mic and turn on the reg controller and whaa laa it works. i was on my way to the store to return it and stumbled accross this accidentally but it works i didn't have to return it at all hope that helps. as for the quiting all at once when it was working i have no idea how to fix that

You can test the microphone on your Windows PC by connecting it to USB and you can use it for any purpose. Run under All Programs Entertainment, sound recorder, or just open up the Mixer and under properties, recording select microphone, you can unmute it on the regular mixer. May get a howl or swuael if your volume too high. (Feedback)... If it will record sound on the PC using sound recorder, then the problem is with the console not recognizing it. This may vary for windows Vista, or Windows 7. I use XP. It sees it as a Logitech USB Microphone. I have a defective one. I think the mic element is blown, I am going to try to solder in one from another microphone to see. Costs $20.00 plus shipping for a new one. Maybe you can take it back to Walmart and get them to exchange it. Good luck with that....

I have guitar hero 3 on xbox 360 along with the wireless drums (cymbal and hi hat) and the wireless guitar. I can not get them to play together. The guitar plays but I can't get the drums to play. do I...

Unfortunately, Guitar Hero 3 does not support drums. World Tour is the first game in the series to support them. In addition, if they aren't official Guitar Hero drums, they aren't guaranteed to work with World Tour. Hopefully they do work. Good luck!

Guitar hero WT mic not discoverable

i cant think as to why the mic wont work, but the other way of singing on GH is if you use your headset through your controller pad. this makes for easier gaming as you wont need your hands except for game setup.

Guitar hero world tour xbox 360

The guitar syncs the same was a regular controller does.

There's a tiny sync button near the XBox button on the guitar. Press that, and then the sync button on your Console.

Just got the xbox 360 guitar hero world tour for christmas. We got the drums and guitar working with no problems, but the microphone wont work. Is that supposed to plug directly into the console?

What you need to do is plug the microphone into the xbox 360, then you need to connect a regular 360 controller to the xbox... there are not any buttons on the microphone which is why the controller is needed.
