Insert the sims 2 Pets disc.

Post by halcyonsim2 on Sat 20 Feb 2016, 07:16

Hi I recently downloaded the sims 2 the complete collection and I downloaded up to the sims 2 pets and wanted to try it out to see if the whole game works but every time I start it a tab keeps telling me to insert the sims 2 pets disc. What do I do? Should I just finish downloading ALL the sims 2 games that came in the complete collection download then start the whole game to see if it will work? thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum @halcyonsim2,

Indeed, the "Complete Collection" is intended to be used in its entirety. However, if you want to play the game "up to" the Pets-expansion, you will need to download a different NoCD-file. From here:
http://goo.gl/ZvdGja


Download this .exe file there. After the download, copy & paste the file into the following location:
C:\Program files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Pets\TSBin. When prompted, replace the existing file. And then make a desktop shortcut from that file; you should only start the game from this particular file/shortcut.

See if that works out for you. Good luck !


P.S. the reason we did not include any of the other NoCD files is because most users want to install all expansions of TS2 anyway. Should the solution above not work for you, please tell us exactly which expansions and stuffpacks you already installed.

Hello again,


Would you tell us which expansions and stuffpacks exactly you installed ? Besides "Pets" and "Open for business" ? The Sims 2 works differently than The Sims 3, and it means in TS2 you must add the NoCD-file from the expansion that was released most recently.

But in order for us to help you better, we need to know what stuff exactly you installed so far. Smile
