Sims 3 Insert disk 1 Errors

Post by Necromancer on Fri 19 Dec 2014, 22:32

Hi, I am having a problem downloading the sims 3. I downloaded the base game, high end, outdoors, ambitions, diesel, master suite, fastlane, town life and generations without applying cracks...everything went well, but now, I cannot download late night or any other expansion without it asking to insert disk 1. I do not know why this happened; does it mean a file has an error?  It says insert disk 1 with cache\...etc every time I try to install something new and then says, error downloading when I try to install the last 2 packs, into the future and island paradise. Please help!

Hello Necromancer,

You must make an empty folder, for each expansion you want to install. Extract ALL the contents of the .RAR, into the empty folder. Again, ALL the contents of the .RAR. You most likely made a mistake when extracting the stuff.

And then, after the extraction, go to the folder with the extracted contents and re-start the installation from there. Good luck !

Basically, when you open a .RAR file with the program "WinRAR", you will see the contents of said .RAR file, in the main program interface of WinRAR. You can then simply mark the contents inside that window with your mouse (as if you were marking a text with your mouse too), and then drag + drop (with your mouse) the marked files out somewhere, preferably into an empty folder.

Hope this helps !
