    I have the same problem, mic not being recognized. The mic is plugged directly into the ps3 usb port. I have tried the mic on my computer and it comes up as Logitec USB mic and works. But it still won't work on the ps3. What else can I try?

Yep the other user was right!   Simply activate a joystick on the PS3 and the mic will light up.  Yes no where do the directions say that...but it works fine now....

Try plugging the mic in direct, into one of the console's usb ports, if that doesnt work, try plugging the mic into a PC, and see if the computer recognizes it as a USB device. If neither of these work. the mic may be defective.

You cannot use them to sing youtube songs the same way. Youtube hasn''t got the required software to recognize your singing and to recognize the required. If you wish to try the mics on other software then singstar you could try http://ultrastardx.sourceforge.net/ on your pc or other sing games on the ps3 as rockband.

Having problems with Nintendo Wii Beatles game. It allows for only one device (guitar, microphone, drums etc.) to be conntected. When the guitar is plugged in it does not recognize the mic and when the...


I dealt with Beatles Rockband Wii on 2 systems with 2 different configurations.
  1. Wireless Drum kit configuration. The Drum USB Transmitter has 2 additional USB ports, that allow Guitar/mic to be connected, plus there is the remaining USB port on the Wii
  2. Wired Drum kit comes with a 4 port USB hub, connect the hub to the Wii, and connect all instruments to the USB hub.
The Wii will only allow 4 controllers connected at once. So if you have multiple Wii Motes, then you may have to disconnect all but the one used for the Mic player (Press 1 on the Wii mote to unsync or remove the batteries)

Rockband for PS3 loads but instruments don't work


I recommend that you go to SONY's website and consult them, but I would think if it can be an at home fix it would be to reload and install an update, or to "flash" the "firmware". Using those terms with tech support might move you a little further along.

Hope this helps,

Rockband mic stopped working, replacement doesn't work either


I forgot that you had to plug in a controller for the mic. Just plug in any standard ps2 controller and it should register the mic.

Check the "levels" in the game.
Go to "Options" -> "Audio and Video", and try turning the mic volume up.  It's likely that if it doesn't work in or out of the hub, that the in-game volume for the mic is turned down too low.
