The Sims 3 Supernatural requires Disk. [SOLVED]

Post by ZomGhee on Wed 25 Sep 2013, 13:43

Hey guys, I realize you must get the same threads over and over again but I can't help but ask.

I had installed Sims about a year ago successfully and without errors and today I decided I want the game back, but somehow I am facing problems. 

I do not want all expansions since I don't like them all so I decided to install the ones I actually like.

Long story short, I installed the base game successfully and with no fuss.

The first expansion I wanted to install was "Supernatural". It prompts me to update the base game in order to install it so I updated it.

For some reason and much to my dismay, even after following the instructions to the letter, Supernatural asks for a disk to be inserted so I am left with no choice but to cancel the installation. 

I have tried again and again but it always asks for a disc and I don't know what to do. 

I keep coming back to forums to see what I am doing wrong but can't find anything.

 I do apologize if this has been asked before but I really do need help.

Hi there,

Have you applied the manual patch before installing The Sims 3 Supernatural: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v157-fix-manual-patch?

If that doesn't help, you will need to redownload the torrent. This one is obvously corrupted. But first, you should apply the manual patch and see if this helps.

Hey cat2006house, yes I did download the manual patch but it is still giving me the same error Sad

Hope it doesn't mean my files are broken it takes too long for me to download (can't download at full speed)

Edit : which torrent is the one that might be broken? My base game or supernatural?

Hey there,

I want to ask you something: Does this error happen during the installation of The Sims 3: Supernatural or after the installation of it?

During. I enter the serial, I select the directory (I'm installing in D instead of C) and after about 1-1,5 minutes it stops asking me to insert the disk.

I think you need to redownload The Sims 3: Supernatural from http://www.games4theworld.org.

Before redownloading, can you try re-extracting the torrent with WinRAR?

That's what I am thinking: you probably need to delete all of the extracted files and re-extract with WinRAR only. This helps some of the users.

Well I'll be.. THAT worked!

I hope the rest of the expansions don't give me the same errors.

Is there a chance they show Sims need to be updated again before installation?

Ι still cannot attempt to start the game since I am  hours away before having all the expansions installed. If I run into any other problems I will make sure I read the instructions again and again.

Hey guys, all good , installed the expansions I wanted and applied the final fix.

It's all good and loading, it prompted me to update to get a store update   , is it important to have it? Are there that many new items?

I did see 2 downloads about the store (The Sims 3 Store updates 1 to 26 (Up to July)
-  The Sims 3 Store updates - June 2011 ) I have to download these right? Smile

This is a store patch, so you can press "Yes".
The reason we use the Manual Patch for the games is because it sometimes fails to work from the Launcher...

Hello,

The store update is actually an update for your in-game store. They are just some pictures showing you the items that you are required to pay for by simpoints.

Alright I've updated it.

One last question if I may, after installing do I really need to keep the 3 files mounted  (base game, supernatural), can't I just delete the installation files?

No need to keep anything mounted to play the games! Wink 
Just unmount the images, and if you're lacking space, you can also delete the installation files.
