Question about Nintendo Rock Band for Wii
I bought RB1 drums, mic, and game from Ebay. Seller insists the game is fully functional and offered me a full refund, but I am intent on getting the drums to work. When I plug the drums into the USB 4 port hub and into the console the blue "band" light on the drums comes on and it appears the sync lights of player #3 come on as well. But when the game is loaded and started the drums do not register. None of the buttons work and I am unable to connect as player #3 in the game. The microphone works in all ports and is fully functional. It appears the drums are too, seeing as the lights come on, but they do not respond when the game starts. Is it possible that since I do not have the guitar the drums won't register because I am missing a player #3???? Is there anyway to get the RB1 drums to re-sync with my console and connect ??? Please help, I'd rather not have to return a perfectly good "looking" set of drums. Thanks.
I hope this isn't too simplistic. Here are my suggestions, though. Try disconnecting everything from the console. Then, plug JUST the drums into the back of the Wii. When the game starts up, be sure to press the + key on the drumset, not the Wiimote. If that works, then just remember the following:
Red drum = "B" button (back)
Yellow drum = "Up"
Green drum = "Down" (both of these to select menu items)
Blue drum = "A" button (select)
Remember that once the game loads, don't use the wiimote. If you use the drums to navigate to solo play, you won't see the guitar. Same with the guitar.
If it works by itself, then try adding the hub, then the guitar receiver.
