Did you guys change your gamertag recently? There's a thread somewhere under "rockband.com support" on their forum where a few have the same problem.

If you've changed your gamertag recently you have to give the Rock Band servers a chance to play catch-up. They aren't updated real-time with the list of Gamertags.

To everyone that is unable to link on the website, try changing your "Desired Username" to something different than what you have been using before...for instance, I was using my gamertag as my desired username, and it would not allow me to register; I input all my information using my GT as my desired username about 20 times and it didn't work. I tried using a different username and it worked the first time. Give it a shot and spread the news.

This worked for me. Friend tried it the next day, worked for him too.

1. Go to Rockband.com and sign in.
2. Go to My Gameplay > Settings > Linking
3. Unlink your account.
4. Sign out of Rockband.com
5. Write down your Rock Band 3 linking code.
6. If you're on Xbox Live, sign out and go to the Dashboard.
7. Sign up for a new account, on the screen check the box that says "I want to link to Rock Band 3" and enter your code.
8. Check your e-mail, activate your new account.
9. Sign in to Xbox Live and start up Rock Band 3.
10. That's it. I got mine after I went to the main menu and DLC was found.

If anyone tries it and gets the achievement, let me know... I'm kind of curious if it actually works or if it was just pure luck on our part.

Its having trouble reconizing my code, I've made a new account without linking, and then followed the steps from a post above and got to #7 where i just logged in again then tried linking account from there, it says the code is "all good!" and put in my gamertag, when I link it says my code is invalid. Anyway of getting around this? I tried linking account while setting a new account but wouldnt work then kept saying email and user name was taken.

I've got the same problem as darkmellow, it keeps saying the code is all good (even if I put in a total random one with the same number of digids). But when I try to sign in it keeps saying 'Invalid' so I tried to make a new account and link it and nothing is happening. I tried using my gt as my username first, but it said it was already in use, although I never made it... lol

I did link my account for rockband 2, but that was via facebook which i cant log in with anymore

edit: I tried to do it whitout signing in, and now it says the linking code is already in use but not on my rockband profile

I had the problem with the achievement not popping from launch up until Tuesday.. While searching the rockband.com forums for an answer, their site went "down" (ie: any attempt to go to the site gave me the "we're fine tuning the site for the release of Rock Band 3" page from launch day). Checked back an hour or so later and the site was back up so I turned on my 360, started up RB3 and the achievement popped.

Only thing I can think is that maybe they were having issues on the site with certain accounts and fixed them during that downtime. So for the people who originally linked to their existing rb.com accounts and are now having issues with their new accounts (saying the code is in use, etc.) may want to try again with their old accounts.

Or it was just a fluke on my part. Either way I figured it couldn't hurt to let people know =)

I guess I'll be stuck with a 4 or a 9 at the end of my gamerscore for forever now...

EDIT: Nevermind, I restarted my Xbox, and started up RB3 again, and boom, achievement unlocked.

Okay, how about this one:

- I have succesfully entered the linking code on the rockband website, it did not say anything about a wrongfully entered code or anything.
- Rockband.com shows everything I have done in the game. Updates, Goals, everything.
- I do have the setlist sharing goal, in the game and on the website.
- NO achievement

So Rock Band 3 IS updating the website, on my profile, no problem.
I DO NOT get the achievement. What the hell :-(

I fixed it! I have more than one account on my X-Box, so the code linked to the first account I have. Log in to every account you have on www.rockband.com and whichever one has automatically linked, unlink it. Then, re-link your account, and it'll work. This also works if you have more than one Gold membership on the same X-Box; link one, get the achievement, unlink, and link others for the achievement.

I am having the same problem as a few other people stated above. I cant even make an account as it says "We've rocked out too hard".........

Is there any solution to this?

XdarXideX
12-04-2010, 02:56 PM
I too have the same problem regarding trying to sign up to rockband.com. To the guys having the same problem... where are you from exactly? I have a feeling this is a problem only for those outside of the US.

The biggest issue with this "rocking out too hard" problem is that we are unable to even enter and post on the official forums to ask for help because it's all linked. Can any of you guys already able to sign in to RockBand.com raise this issue on their forums? It's getting annoying that MTV (it's not EA's problem) are ignoring all this.

I honestly think it has something to do with your Gamertag being signed in while you are trying to link. Someone should try writing down the code first then signing out of Xbox live and then trying to link before signing back in.

EDIT: at least if this is the issue you can skip the whole "make a second acoount" deal.

The problem with this method is that you already need an account to sign out of, and as loads of us can't create an account to start with then this method is pretty useless I'm afraid.

The whole system is poor all round, this shouldn't have been broken to start with!

My game won't even link with the website... Every time I've tried to put the code in it says that it or my gamertag is invalid... I'm going mental! I've made about 4 accounts on rb.com to do it and one from signing into Facebook but the code won't work on any of them! Can anyone help me?

That method up on here won't work for me at all coz I'm not even linked in the first place like... So annoying!

I've been having problems with this too. Not sure what the problem is, but I get this message:

Somethingís wrong! Either that web code or that gamer tag is invalid. Why donít you try it again?

I honestly don't remember if I linked it to RB2 or not - if I did, how would I be able to find out? I've also tried signing out of live and doing it, but can't get anything to work.
