    Tried it with normal 1.4 and 1.4 v7 final ultimate. It did it back on v1.1 as well using wanin original loader. I even formatted the drive and re-installed the games again fresh, still does it. Guitar Hero 3, meticallica, aerosmith and world tour all work perfectly. Using 4.0 dash with cios249 rev10.

    When it freezes, it freezes for a few seconds then keeps on going. Sometimes it does this multiple times per song.

    No problems here either.
    It's probably your hard drive.

    I have similar problems in different games, or used to. Your problem is most likely heat. Just keep a house fan on your external hd while its running, and hopefully you'll be fine.

    Rock Band 2 and AC/DC Track Pack for Rock Band both use Guitar Hero guitars just fine. Its only Rock Band 1 and the earlier track packs that could not play with the guitar hero guitars. I was using a nyko frontman Wii guitar but returned it and am going to get a Guitar Hero World Tour guitar instead since id like the guitar to come apart for easy storage, and the nyko doesnt do that.

    Guys, if you are playing RB2 with many songs and hey work fine with your USB loader, please confirm as well. Id like to know if its just an issue with my setup or if its more involved then that.

    The freeze has something to do with the power management of your harddrive. It's not an issue with 3.2'' HDs, but with 2.5'' HDs. After a short time of HD inactivity the HD spins down and is going to sleep mode. When the game needs to load data from the HD, it has to spin up, what takes a few seconds. With Western Digitial HDs it is possible to tweak the spin down time. Search google for "hdparm".
