You may need to call Sony and ship your playstation to Texas. i bought GH world tour and the old playstations can't read the triple layer coding or something like that. cost $50 but it worked. they also told me it happened with the rockband games as well.

I have had my GH Metallica for a long time, and its worked before (not the first time). This is what i figured out you could do.

On your slim like mine, put in the disc and turn it on. Then you should hear a few ticks. Take the ps2, and turn it horizontly with the front facing you, and whenever you hear a tick, just bump it against you knee.
The first time I did this, it was out of frustration. Then I figured out that it worked. I am super happy :)

How can i get my ps2 to read the metallica guitar hero game


If it is a PS2 game disc it should read just fine. If it is not, it wont. If it is new, return it as defective. If a new disc does not work you will need the drive repaced or repaired. Call us for free phone support or a repair. 1-800-479-4620

Can't play dual layered disk in playstation slim silver


I know, this is very annoying. Mine is SCPH-79001.
Just put in the game like you would any game (that would read) and you should hear a few ticks. Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you. And whenever you hear a tick, just tap it against you knee, then you should hear it spinning.

My ps2 wouldn't read GH world tour or metallica, but know it works. Hope I helped

Cant play new guitar hero Metallica.....need help please!


Ok, heres what you do.

(with the ps2 slim, this will work, I'm not sure with the fat but here you are)

Turn it on with the disc in it.
Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you.
Whenever you hear a tick (only for fat) tap it against you knee a few times until you hear it spinning.

I first figured this out when I was frustrated. The ticks should be in groups of two. I just taped it on my knee, then I heard it spinning, and now I know I didn't waste my money on GH metallica and world tour.

GUITART HERO METALLICA


I have a ps2 slim SCPH-79001, so I am not sure if it will work with the fat ps2s but:

Turn the ps2 horizontly with the ps2 front facing you. Then put it in, you should hear a few ticks (with the slim) and just tap it against you knee a few times until you jear it spinning.

Again, I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2, but I hope I helped.

Guitar Hero Metallica and Rock Band 2 wont play. Other's will


Just turn the ps2 up horizontly and when you hear the ticks (if its slimline) just tap it against you knee. This will knock the laser a little bit away from the line in the center, and it will read. DONT DO IT SO HARD THOUGH.

Guitar Hero Metallica Wont play on my Ps2


okay, try this: 1. Start up PS2 with no disc 2. select 'Browser', press triangle. 3. select 'Console', press triangle. 4. select 'Diagnostics', press X, select 'ON'. 5. press 'O' to back out of this menu. 6. select 'Playstation Drive', press triangle. 7. select 'Disc Speed', press X, select 'FAST'. 8. press 'O' to back out of menu. 9. turn off PS2. 10. insert disc. The Diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I got this "FIX" from someone who had the same problem. Hope this helps :D
