Insert Game Disk error

Post by amihimesama on Tue 14 Jan 2014, 04:18

Hi! I am new here. Not sure where I should post anything, but I am having the EXACT same problem as above. I followed all the steps exactly as in the guide, and i have all the expansion packs and stuff packs, as well as the latest upgrade, and fix, and it keeps asking for the disc. Don't know what to do anymore Sad 
Also i apologize for intruding on this conversation, not sure where I should post, i'm not very FORUM savvy.

Hello,

Please follow these steps exactly:

1) Download the manual patch here and apply it: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3597-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v163-fix-manual-patch

2) RE-DOWNLOAD the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

3) Make sure you copy ONLY THE TWO FILES in the #crack folder over to the Game> Bin folder for your base game.  You should receive a message asking you if you would like to replace the files.

*It is very important that you re download the files again incase there were errors during your first download.

Okay thank you! Will download now and apply. I'll let you know what happens


//EDIT

Okay it worked! The game didn't ask for a disc! But now I have another problem Sad The game launched, And then the screen turned black and it was stuck like that for 15mins. At first I thought it was loading but, when i checked my 'task manager' it was stuck and not responding so i had to force quit..Any idea on how to fix this?

Hmm.

Try deleting the Electronic Arts folder found in your Documents folder.
