PS2 rock band disk

Just bought a new rock band game. When I hooked things up and loaded the disk, message appears stating Browser and system configuration. Haven't seen this before. Any ideas?? I think I have all hooked up right

    I had the same problem. All other discs work but when I put the new rockband disc for ps2 in, I received an error message regarding configuration. Very frustrating! I made several trips to my local vendor where the game was purchased to complain, only to find out its not the disc but the game system (gas isn't cheap, the game ended up costing me way more than the sticker price not to mention time and frustration).

    I went to the EA site to get assistance and was told to contact Sony tech support.

    OK so my rockband disc worked for a few months with no problem, i buy the track pack volume 1 and they both work, then i put the Rock Band disc in and it says Browser, System configuration, now what? I reset the PS2, I unplug it and plug it back in, I have cleaned it out... it has some minor scratches but those have been there forever, and the other games work fine, so if you have any idea on how to fix this besides getting a new disc please get back to me, it's appreciated

    Rock Band Disc will not work in PS2, how can we get it to work?

  • Anonymous Jan 02, 2009

    I have the black slim 7000012 series PS2. I tried the autoconfiguration as well as cleaning the lens with no luck. The system just stops on a black screen if the Rock Band disc is already inserted. If you boot the system and then load the disc, it just sits there at the reading disc screen forever. Rock Band support said to clean the lens and if that did not work, contact Sony. Sony indicated that this was a known issue with both Rock Band and Guitar Hero and that the system would have to be sent in for "repair" at a cost of $45. Oddly, the PS2 plays other games, CD's, and DVD's just fine. Sounds like a firmware defect that was caught too late (and really should be provided for free).

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.

The Rock Band disc is a double layered disc, and is basically too high tech for older versions of PS2s... so the only real thing to do is upgrade and get the slim version...

the screen with the Browser and System Config, is the default screen for playstation, it appears when there is no disc or there is a disc read error.

I'm having the same troubles. I have a 300001 R model.

You have to go into the settings and do a disk diagnosis. Turn it on and then put the disk in. It should work. It did for us.

Rock band 2 for ps2 not working right

We had the same problem on a PS2 (thin) that is several years old. We tried exchanging the disk - same problem. We have a lot invested in the PS2 system and just bought several new games for it for Xmas so we decided to buy a new PS2 and see what happened. The Rock Band game works perfectly in the new PS2 with no issues.

Rock Band

Peuhayd is pretty close. It may be due to the PS2 not being able to read the scripts on the Disk. If you can, get a newer one and see if that works. The version may be old and there might be a problem with the info getting onto the PS2.
Email me at if it doesnt work.

Rock band won't play on my playstation2 slimline

We had the same problem, we even went and bought a whole new Rock Band. My husband turned our PS2 slimline on the side and it started working. I don't know why or how, I just know it worked for us. Give it a try and I hope it works for you also.
