Please insert disk! Help! [CLOSED]

Post by ohpinky on Thu 09 May 2013, 13:47


I recently purchased and installed an official copy of the Sims 3 (via Origin) and had trouble installing custom content.
When attempting to install custom content into my game, an error message "Unable to connect to Origin" would appear and despite countless attempts to fix this, I couldnt.

I then used the "ultimate fix" and followed the instructions carefully.
I have downloaded and installed University Life from your torrent list as the "ultimate fix" said that I was required to install atleast one of the expansion packs.

I then added the final crack files (from ultimate fix) to program files > electronic arts > the sims 3 > game > bin. and replaced the files that I had previously added from the University Life crack. (I believe this is step 13).

Now, when I load my game, I was able to install the custom content fine. But it now says I need to insert the University Life disk in order to play.

Please can you help me fix this?

When you have a base game from origin, that folder (The sims 3 and beyond) shouldn't be in that location. The crack then goes in "C\Program Files\Origin Games\Sims 3\Game\Bin" So try placing the crack there.
