    Have 'slim' ps2 and my new rock bank disc won't read. All other games play fine. Brother has even older ps2 and it plays fine on his. Why? Would a new disc help? Should I return rock band system for another to try?

    same with me. i got it for xmas, but none of the lights are coming on and it says disc read error. i got a wii, too, so should i got out and return the one for the ps2, and exchange it for the wii version?

    We got Rock Band as an xmas gift for son. All of his other games work fine on his older PS2 but Rock Band says disc read error, etc. We thought it was the disc and exchanged it at the store but had the same problem with the new one.

    it could be the scripting of the game. I got my ps2 when ther were first released (like a geek i waited 3 days out front of the store...) and ive noticed that some of the newer games wont run on the older system because the info is slightly different. have you tried the game in a newer system to see if its the disc itself?

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 kiki-mad@hotmail.co.uk if it doesnt work.

I can't play rock band for my ps3


There should've been a patch released for that, but you gotta go to to accessory settings and reassign your rockband peripherals to any slots 1-4, if its 5-7 they wont work.

I'm trying to play Rock Band 2 with the drums from Rock Band and the drums are only working sometimes. Has the game had problems with this or is it my connection???


could be your connection coming loose at the usb. Check your connections and if they have a good connection I would check into the warranty on your drums. They have reported some drums that were were not working correctly.

The rythm should be pretty quick. Like eighth notes or sixteenth notes if you're musica

Playstation 2 Rock band disc error and no power in usb ports


There is a piece dust on the CD reader eye. there is two ways to fix this. 1. bye a disk cleaner any wal-mart or 2. take the unit apart. and clean the tiny glass laser eye your self using a cotton swab and alcohol. WARNING! never take any thing apart while it is plugged in. O TRY PLAYING A DVD IN IT AND SEE IF IT WORKS OR NOT IF NOT THEN YOU KNOW ITS DUST ON THE LASER LENS.
