Xbox scratching the Rockband CD

We bought an Xbox in Jan 08, refurbished. We have been playing Rockband extensively in the last few weeks. A large ring has now formed aroung the outer perimeter of the disc and we're getting a "programme cannot be read" error message. Any thoughts or suggestions??

This means some one either bumped the 360 or moved it vertically while playing ....this makes the outer ring on games there is now way of fixing the game

I bought drums at a garage sale. I thought they were for Rockband Wii. I bought Rockband 1 for Wii, but I can't get the drums to sync. The screen keeps indicating it can't detect a microphone,...


If the buttons that you have are 1, 2, A, B, then you have the Rockband drums for Wii (the ones for Xbox have X, Y, A, B). You don't need a microphone to play Rockband, you just need to have a Wii remote on when you start the game. That should get rid of the pesky "Can't Detect Microphone" message and let you get to the main game screen to play the rest of the game. Have fun!

Now here's what i think... Your game cd most probably has a scratch on it at the part where the simming program is stored...First just look at your cd in good light from various angles if there is a scratch. If there's a deep/moderate single scratch (just a line) or even a light circular scratch (an entire circle is traced around the disc) then this is most probably the source of your problem. SOLUTION 1 : If either of the two i said do exist then you'll have to get your cd cover removed. thats a comlicated process and very few people actually do it. Based on where you stay i could help you out. SOLUTION 2 : Now this would seem the better option easily. Currently fifa 08 costs like $10-$12 on ebay. My sincere advice is just buy a new one. I've used US dollars here coz I don know where you're from but im pretty sure once you've converted it to ur local currency it'll be roughly the same. SOLUTION 3: And finally i'm pretty sure you would have tried this. Dust your cd very carefully (from the centre to the end each time and not going in a circle) , plug it in and then pray. This has a 5% chance of working but won't hurt to give it a try right? Hope this helped.

My xbox wont play the downloaded tracks on rockband 2


Are you using the same console that you were using when you purchased the Rockband 1 songs? Can you play the songs if you sign into xbox live? If you are on another machine or have ever sent your console in for repairs, and you can play the tracks when signed into xbox live then you need to transfer the DRM(Digital Rights Media) to your new console.You will need your new/repaired machine signed into xbox live and a computer that is online. Then go to www.xbox.com/drm and follow the steps. You will be rocking in no time. Party on Wayne.
