Insert Disk issues

Post by Aplc on Thu 24 Oct 2013, 19:01

I recently downloaded and installed Sims 3 into the future today.
I read the instructions carefully to be sure I did not make a mistake.
I updated me game, downloaded the ultimate fix and put the .exe and dll files in the right place as well as the sims 3 into the future file.
So where am I going wrong because it keeps telling me I need to insert a disk.
Can someone please help? Is there a mod to fix this?

I'm having the same issue. I have all games and all the expansion packs. All downloaded from here aside from the base game and Ambitions.

Okay, I've downloaded the tool, and I clicked on the fix file, but which option do I press? I've updated my game to the latest patch and have the latest fix so do I click on I want to play sims 3?

I'm having the same problem, only I uninstalled all my EPs and only have the base game installed. I'm in the process of downloading the fix, and my game is updated to 1.63.

Note that if you don't remove the #crack from the Ultimate Fix first, (aka use the manual patch 1.63, available here) It may not work.

However, in your case, I seriously doubt No-CD mod helps much. A clean reinstallation may be in order.
