Guitar Hero II Replacement Cord Xbox 360

Microsoft doesn't sell the usb replacement cord and I'm too cheap to buy something that i can obtain for free. But, does anyone know what the fifth wire in the cord from the guitar to the xbox is. Should be the blue one. I have searched the nvidia motherboard and got nothing. I have an old usb (with only 4 wires) and can easily hook it up but don't want to fry anything.

For the 3 other users with the same problem, your problem can be solved by playing on a different Television or hooking up a VCR or DVD player to your TV and putting your xbox 360 into it. Or maybe your AV cables are just broken, On the AV cables there is a Yellow Wire, a Red Wire, and a White wire... All three have to be plugged in to recieve full sound.

Bought guitar hero warriors of rock for the xbox 360 and the disk is unreadable. My console only has the 4gb harddrive( non removable i think). It can read call of duty. GH is brand new just out of the box...

From the sound of it, you may need to get a replacement disc. Sometimes during the packaging process games get damaged and if you just bought the game and still have the receipt then you should be able to get a replacement easily. What you may also try is a power cycle on you Xbox 360. Make sure Guitar Hero is in the system tray then unplug the power cable from the wall outlet and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Plug it back in and turn on the console and see if it works.

Xbox will only play some games i tried all guitar hero but only one works

Your dvd-drive in the console might be wearing out. Over time the laser inside might have trouble reading discs that have more wear and tare on them. You can find replacement drives cheap on ebay, and also find a tutorial on how to open the console to replace the drive as well. You could also take your games by your local movie store and ask for them to refinish your discs.

My new black x box 360 elite will not pair with wireless guitar hero guitar this worked fine with my last x box 360 which failed with the ring of death

Wireless guitar may have been damaged and if so you might have to buy a new controler for guitar hero . Its not the xbox 360 its the Wireless guitar the If sensor is either broken of a loose wire inside the guitar is causing the problem . If the problem persist do NOT open the guitar go buy a used one from gamestop or online . Amazon has cheap replacements around 10-15$ depending what wireless guitar your buying .

What do i need to connect to the internet. can i also use wireless connection

For wireless you need to buy a xbox 360 wireless adapter. I would recommend the N one for most likely a better connection even on G networks.

If you can't afford it I know people sell these adapters for dirt cheap on craigslist. like 30 dollars for the G one.

But for not wireless you can plug a Ethernet cord right into the back of the console. Every 360 comes packaged with a Ethernet cord.

Xbox 360 wireless ownt work

xbox 360 wireless adapters are usally the worst to get.
i suggest buying a long enough ethernet cord and using that, a 50m ethernet cord is around about $25. so pretty cheap.

Faulty usb port?

From your description it does sound like your Xbox 360 USB port is shot or you have just racked up the hours on three different guitar hero guitars. Not to doubt your skills or the dedication any of us have to the game I am just leaning towards it being the USB port. Here is the link to the Microsoft run down of how to eliminate the possible problems.

If you were still under warranty this would be the check list they would have you go through prior to taking the console back. I am assuming that since you have gone through three different guitars you were switching out the USB connector to see if you had a faulty connection on the cord connecting your guitar to your actual box. If you haven't checked this you could potentially solve the problem with $5 and a trip to best buy.

If you have already checked this I would check out this site that offers the manual on how to repair your Xbox. They have step by steps on how to solve just about any Xbox 360 and Playstation problems. Here is the link to the overall tutorial:">
In particular here is a link of fitting a standard USB port into your machine in case you feel like Frankensteining it:">

Dog chewed cord of xbox 360 guitar hero 2 controller

if it was the cord of the guitar itself, you are pretty screwed, unless you look for damaged guitars at ebay and see if you can change it...
