Guitar hero 3 wii not reading disc

My guitar hero 3 is not reading the disc when I try to play a new group of songs in the career mode, but it's working fine on quick play or when I play previous songs in the career mode. I tried shutting the wii down and I cleaned the disc, but that didn't work. What do I do now?

If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

On the Wii game, Band Hero, I am trying to play in the career mode. It is recognizing the microphone and is ready to go. But, I can't find out how to "add" the guitar?? Does it need to be plugged...


I'll provide you with the instruction on how to connect the guitar on your Wii

1. Turn on the Wii. Open the side panel and press the "Sync" button.
2. Remove the cover off the back of your Wii remote. Press the "Sync" button.
3. Insert the neck of the guitar onto the guitar.
4. Open the back panel on the guitar.
5. Attach the connector from the guitar to the Wii remote. Place the Wii remote into the guitar as described on the illustration on the guitar.
6. Re-attach the cover to the Wii remote. Close the back panel on the guitar.

The guitar is also wireless.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Our Wii Band Hero ''kills'' the song

The best Idea is to let them practice in practice mode first. Make sure the settings are set to beginner. After 2 or 3 tries on practice let them try again in career mode. They will have to do it until they get it right in order to unlock other songs. Practice mode will not stop songs if they get it wrong.

Where are all the songs

You can go to any cheat site and get a code to unlock all the songs in quickplay mode without going through the whole game in career mode to unlock them all. That is the only way to unlock them all without playing all the way through!

Lagging in Guitar Hero and now others

What kind of TV do you have? I've noticed that when I played GH 3 on my plasma TV it lagged until I calibrated it. You might need to change the TV scale to 480p since wii isn't high def. Hope this helps.
