Rock Band 3 Pro Wireless Guitar Won't Sync
The Rock Band 3 Wireless Pro Guitar won't sync with the USB dongle in the System Menu or in the game. They seem to be able to see each other, (when I press the sync button on the dongle, the 4 player boxes blink on the guitar, and when I press on the sync button on the guitar, the led on the dongle blinks) but the guitar is never assigned a player. I do not know if this is because I have custom IOSes, if this would work if my Wii were not hacked. I can't use the guitar, and was wondering if anyone had experienced this, or has a solution to this problem?
Any update with this? Did you solve it?
Hey puppy_washer. Still no luck? I'm running into the same problems with my keyboard again. I syncs up intermittently when running the game off USB Loader GX, but I still can't figure out what exactly causes it to refuse to sync consistently - I'm not noticing and patterns of activity when the player assignment light suddenly comes on. Plus I'm still getting the disc read error in the Disc Channel - now with two games: RB3 AND Goldeneye.
I'm going to try this again from scratch: I'm going to reinstall the 222, 223 and even the 249 IOS wads as well as IOS37 and IOS56. I don't know yet if this means it will break my shop channel hack (I had to install the updated IOS56-64-v5662 and the shop channel v20 to enable them on my modified wii), but it's worth the risk. Worst case scenario, if it gets the disc channel AND the keyboard to work consistently, I'll at least have been able to figure out what broke it. I can then try to figure out a way to remedy the situation from there. :-)
if it still dont work it is best that u change to other loaders like wiiflow or configurable usb loader as it is the only way as usb loaders has many bugs and glitches which cause many wii have problems with it ...
if want to use instrument run cios with the base of ios 37 as that one is instrument compatibility ios
SYSTEM MENU V4.1U .. HBC v1.0.8 .. PRIILOADER V0.7(rev 138) .. Cios d2x v7-final ... WIIFLOW r417 .. NEOGAMMA B9 rev 47 (still lookin for new ones) .. etc etc
plug in dongle/instuments before u boot the game....try ios 223,
or 249 v20
I got it working a few days ago, actually! And, my Pro Guitar/Microphone stopped working after awhile too, actually...
I've figured out what causes it.
It appears that using Configurable USB Loader (with 223mload) screws the connectivity up, for other loaders too. I'm unsure whether other loaders do the same.
Simply reinstalling THIS and THIS will make USB functionality work again. Even better, is that cIOS 249 will work with USB too! So, you'll be able to use DLC with your keyboard!
Using USB Loader GX with 249 seems to keep USB functionality completely. Avoid using Configurable USB Loader for Rock Band 3.

I have an Emulated NAND with Uniiloader and all my instruments including pro guitar work perfectly. Seven people can play RB3 at the same time at my house.
Check out Uniiloader here: http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/694...en-posted.html
Sounds crazy but here are few advantages of a Emulated NAND with Uniiloader:
1. Increases Wii-system-memory to the size of a HDD-partition.
2. And that means u can install as many channels (VC, WiiWare etc) and DLCs (eg. for Guitar Hero or Rock Band) as u like.
3. U can let Nintendo-Update your Emu-NAND without any harm to your real NAND.
4. U dont need any cIOSes or patched IOSes anymore. Means u always will have a clean up-to-date wii-system.
5. Because of that game-compatibility will be 100%. Never any problems!
Is there a guide? I know how to do basic NAND Emulation (I already have a Fat32 partition with my NAND on it), but a specific guide would be fantastic. Additionally, I read that some people have had issues with UniiLoader, with games and saves being wiped.

Now we have 2 solutions to Mic+Pro Guide functionality!
I have no problem with Rock Band 3 and a GH guitar, perhaps is because the GH guitar uses a Wiimote instead of a usb dongle. I wish I had a Rock Band guitar to do some testing, did you try with Hermes v4 IOS223 (37+38) and Hermes v5.1 IOS224(57)? Those two IOS's is what you shoud be trying to get USB device compatibility.
I do use CFG for RB3, no problems there.
