Launcher not working and saying no disk found

Post by kiarahicks84 on Tue 05 Jan 2016, 13:16

Yesterday I updated my game through the Sim Launcher and now today when I tried to launch it it reads "Sims3Launcher has stopped working." I really need the Launcher to download my custom content. I came on here and read the other threads about the launcher and tried to open the game with the TS3W icon. The game loads up until it gets to the continue game screen and it wont go any further. It says "No disk found. Please insert The Sims 3 Into The Future Disk". My game was working perfectly fine before I updated it.

Hello and welcome to the forum !  alien


I'll assume you have your basegame of Sims 3 (and maybe some or even all expansions) on Origin ? If yes, then this mysterious 1.69 update wrecked everything. Try this here (but I can't tell if it's going to work).

Uninstall just the Origin basegame of Sims 3 for now, and re-boot the computer. After that, please disable automatic Origin game updates; see this thread to learn how to do that. And you will probably need to re-download the base-game in Origin.

Once that is done, repeat the steps #2 and #5 here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


So re-apply the 1.67 manual patch and then the Ultimate fix. Now try the game again. Good luck !


P.S. alternatively, you could drop all your Origin games (i.e. uninstall them all) and just go for pirated stuff straight away, like I myself did. We have a complete collection of Sims 3 on our download site here, and it has instructions included. Note that this complete edition has about 27GB filesize, and includes the base game plus all expansions. So if you want to give that a try, instead of meddling with Origin, that could be an alternative.

Thank you for the welcome! I'm going to try uninstalling everything like you said and download The Sims 3 off of your site.
