'No game disc found' HELP

Post by buflesse on Fri 14 Jun 2013, 20:34

I've had The Sims 3 since 2010 and it's always worked fine, but it's suddenly no longer working anymore. Every time I try to play it from the launcher, the 'no game disc found' window comes up and it's so frustrating. I looked at the 'Must Read' post on here http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly but I'm not sure if it's applicable to me because it says: "install AT LEAST one of the following expansions..." and I have no expansion packs. The official EA advice (basically either delete all your custom content or take the battery out of your Mac) is rubbish. Does anyone have any solutions for Macs with no expansion packs? I'm a bit of a technophobe so please be patient with me!


Helper edit: Topic moved to "Mac support".

I love the take the battery out fix Awesome Emote



Anyway to make the fix work you will need one of those expansion packs that the guide lists, sure ages ago it would worked fine, but since the EA updates the fix needs one of those expansions to work with the fix unfortunately.

Meanwhile you should be able to find a expansion pack http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html
