I have beatles rock band so I have that to play but I also have guitar hero Metallica and world tour and neither work with the drums. But online in the compatability it says all systems work with these games except for the wii. Is there a way around this. Like a hack or something?
The only Wii Guitar Hero games that are compatible with Rock Band Drums are Guitar Hero 5 and Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
I know this thread is very old and probly won't be read at this point, but w/e. Long story short, Instrument combatibility on Wii was always kinda screwy, probably in part because both series did their instruments in a different way (GH did their instruments as wiimote extension controllers, RB were USB (wired or adapters)).
You are watching: Wii rock band drums
From memory: RB1 Wii could use only RB instruments. 2 could use either game's stuff (though I'm not 100% sure on Drums) as could 3. Mics work on anything, because the mics were always the same with different logos painted on them. Obviously, the RB keyboard works only with 3.
GH5 forward worked with RB Drums, but I don't think the earlier ones did. Guitars I feel might be the same, but I never tested there (I only ever had RB drums and GH guitars) so I can't say for sure. Mics again, were the same, so any game/any mic should work (even across consoles - the Wii U mic even works on 360 RB3). And again, obviously, none of them worked with RB3's keyboard.
I never got the GH band-specific games, so I can't speak to their compatibility, but I think they were based on GH4's engine, compatibility-wise. Aerosmith was likely GH3.
RB's band games were the same as RB2, so GH guitars work with them, keys don't, mics do, drums I don't know (but I think they do).
Long story short, no instruments work with every game (other than mics), but RB2/3 and GH5/6 should work with every instrument. Wii instrument compatibility was effed up. Other consoles, this is much less of an issue (probably in part because of patches, but also all controllers were either USB adapters (PS3) or 360 wireless controllers).

EDIT: To my knowledge, this is likely beyond the scope of the average hack to fix, and even if it weren't, this was the least popular/most gimped version of both series on a game that stopped being popular anywhere a couple years ago or more, so it's unfortunately unlikely to happen). There's also the issue that Wii games can't be patched, so any legit fix would have to be made to the game discs, and rereleases of any of the games to fix patches are never happening.
