Anyone getting the "Please Insert Disc" Error after update?

Post by pinkrabbit on Fri 13 Sep 2013, 07:07

Hello everyone, I am new here.

I tried to install the sims 3 to my mac, and I got stuck in almost the first step.

I download the base game and started it, avoid all the updates, and started the game. It worked, I played for a good 20 minutes, and left it as it is.

Later I come back, start the game, avoid all the updates like how the guide said, and then I clicked the "Update now" tab to update. The update took about 30 minutes, and after that, I kept getting the "Please Insert Disc" error.

Am I not suppose to update? (The guide said we can update and patch?) Please let me know if I have done anything wrong here.

Thank you!

Hello there!
You did great updating it, but then you have to apply the Ultimate Fix (the crack) again. You can find the instructions here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t13801-ultimate-fix-now-compatible-with-version-157-of-the-sims-3

Let us know how it goes.

Hi there! 

TCPCohen is right, but I'm wondering if you installed any Expansion Packs? The fix only works if you have installed at least one Smile

Cheers!

Great! Do update us on your progress Smile

Here are some simple steps to help you:
1) Extract base game to Applications folder.
2) Update to 1.57 via the launcher.
3) Install your EPs.
4) Apply only the 2 files in the #crack folder for the Ultimate Fix. (there is no need to follow the installation guide for the fix and all other files are not necessary.)
