Guitar Hero III Replacement Disc Program for Wii

For Everyone with a copy of Guitar Hero 3 Wii Edition. They've finally sorted out the replacement discs to sort out the Dolby Sound issue. The Disc can be replaced via this website:

This is linked on the Activision Europe Support Forum, if you want to check the validity!

If you follow the instructions it prints out a postage paid label to send your disc to (goes to Holland!)

This is my first Deal Thread so please be kind!


cool well done

Just registered, don't mind being without my disk for a few days as Mario Kart will be here Friday.

Once you have registered, we will email you a pre-paid postage label addressed to our Replacement Centre . Please attach that label to a bubble envelope, place your Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock WII game disc inside the envelope, and then drop the envelope into a post box. Please do not send any packaging from the original Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock WII game. Please only send the game disc

Can you just send the disc or do you have to send the dvd case also ?

zeus - Just send the disc on its own - Just like the pictures on the printout - I put mine in a cd sleeve just to be on the safe side but I don't think that was required! I'll copy the photos on in a minute!


Got it. Just clicked on the link and saw it. I thing i will put mine in a sleeve also. Probably the best thing to do.

Ah you beat me to it! Nevermind, nice one zeus!

Just FYI, Activision are quoting 3 to 6 weeks for the turnaround on the new disc if asked, which is pretty dismal in my opinion. Still, at least we finally got a replacement program at all...

Well if you've a modified Wii you don't mind the 3-6 week wait :whistling: :whistling:

With Mario Kart out this week and Wii Fit out in ~2weeks I can wait for for guitar hero to get back to me! Agreed its still annoying thou! Americans get the replacement discs quicker - but we get Mario Kart sooner - I know what I prefer!

Just posted mine - just have to see how quick the turn around is!

Mines going out in the morning

Thanks sending mine tomorrow

at the risk of sounding pretty stupid, do I have to return my son's Guitar Hero disc for a replacement? He hasn't mentioned a sound problem so I don't know if it is a universal problem with the game or not.:oops:

its a universal problem
its only in mono not dolby stereo


its a universal problemits only in mono not dolby stereo

thank you jasonrat. I have now registered for a replacement. it should be great in stereo, thought it was good already!

Thanks guys, can't wait. Heat added.

Not a deal though is it.

Thanks for the headsup on this... will be sending mine back 2moro

Been waiting for this for ages - just wanted to share the joy of stereo!:-D

Its a much better game in stereo, and mario kart is ace lol.

Do these go out via recorded delivery?

Does not look so - It is going to Holland. I would suggest getting a Certificate of Posting, in case it goes missing (esp. as your return address is not in the package - it must be handled by having a unique bar-code for each person.)

What was wrong with the original disk? - mine seemed to work fine??

It's only in mono....not Dolby Stereo

Ah! - Cheers, that was clever off them.

Sent mine off this morning

Thanks JB!:thumbsup:

I only got my Guitar Hero III yesterday (from Game). Should that have the correct disk? Is there any way of telling?


Just phoned activison. This is how to tell if you have the fixed version..

How do I tell the difference between the original and the re-mastered Guitar Hero III Wii game discs?

Discussion Thread

Activision's re-mastered disc of Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock for the Wii with improved audio output should now be in broad distribution to retailers nationwide. Therefore, if you purchase a copy of Guitar Hero® III: Legends of Rock for the Wii in April or any later month, and the box contains the Dolby Pro Logic II logo then there is a very high likelihood that it is the re-mastered game.

However, to distinguish the re-mastered version from the original, Activision has placed a star above the Activision logo on the front label of the game disc. If you are unsure as to whether or not your game has Dolby Pro Logic II audio capabilities, please click here to see a photo of the re-master disc label. activision.custhelp.com/rnt…jpg
