You may need to copy the files to an empty folder on your desktop. The files from us only include the .iso which needs to be mounted before it can be installed. If I remember right, the download includes two disk images that after mounted can be used to install. I personally use magicdisc I believe that should correct your issue. Can you post a screenshot of the disk your friend gave you so that I can make sure it is our download. Otherwise go ahead and do what I said and then let us know the result. Thanks! ^_^

Thank you for your reply Surprised .I'll try copy the file into my desktop.Actually , I took the copy of The Sims 3 from my friend's external hard drive(The CHIP(F:),CHIP(G:),CHIP(H:) on the left) ,not from disk.And there's only this file , no .iso images to mount.I guess this download is not from Games4TheWorld , but any solution to fix this?I wanted to play Sims 3 so bad .Thanks Rolling Eyes   Surprised

I would suggest seeing if your friend still has the original download file somewhere on their computer.


Mod edit: moved to the right section.

help?

Post by VampirePrin4jc on Mon 24 Aug 2015, 04:53

im actually having the same problem though its looking for a different file.

 "Please insert disk 1 that contains the file game/bin/code_version.txt"

I know where that file is but when I select the folder it pops up the message saying

"Setup could not find a file on the specified path or disk. Please check that the proper disk is inserted or specify a new path."

I cant find any disk image or anything I can mount, I know I downloaded it here. I'm not sure what to do at this point, am I missing some files or something?
