Rock Band for PS2

For some reason I can't get Rock Band to load and play for the PS2. I have purchased two different disks. The first one worked fine for a while and then stopped, so I bought a second brand new...won't load. Any suggestions?

    My son bought Rock Band Deluxe with b-day money. Disc would not load. When called EA. They sent us a new disc that still won't load. The guy at Sony said we might need some kind of adaptor. What's going on? Is there something else we can try? All the disc can't be messed up.

    We bought RB and when we loaded for first time, got the "disc read error". Took it back and got a second "new" disc and it to could not be read. The PS2 plays everything else, and we loaded 2 more new games after - Iron Man rocks - so we know its no tthe console. Will try one more time

    Same problem--Rockband won't play on our PS2. Called EA for a new disk--it's not the disk! Turns out that after EA came out with the game for PS2 and delivered it into stores, Sony calls them and tells them "by the way, there are some number of PS2s that will not read this dual-layer disk". According to the guy I spoke with at EA, Sony put the number at around 50%!! But Sony told EA to send any customers with problems to them.



    I then called Sony. They told me for $45 they would upgrade my PS2 so it would play the game. I told them I wasn't going to pay a cent--the game was sold for the PS2, and mine played all other PS2 games we've ever tried. Then I called EA back and told them that since they knew the games would not work but continued to sell them, they had a duty to either refund all my money (can't take the open box unit back) or make it work. In the absence of a solution they are open to a fraud and misrepresentation lawsuit. (Once they were made aware of the problem they had a duty to fix it or pull it).



    I'm giving them a few days, then will look for a lawyer who wants to file a class action. This is completely unacceptable.

Send the discs back as defective if they don't work! Don't repurchase.

PS2 rock band disk


Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.
