Attempting to Install Sims3 Can't burn Image as it is too large

Post by crash254 on Mon 13 Feb 2012, 22:51

I am new on here and not sure if this query should be posted here on not.

I just dl the torrent Sims3 and was told to first create an image of each and in order (Sims3; Sims3: World Adventures; Sims3: High-End Loft Stuff; Sims3: Ambitions; Sims3: Fast Lane Stuff; Sims3: Late Night Stuff; Sims3: Outdoor Living Stuff: Sims3: Generations; Sims3: Town Life Stuff).

However, when attempting to burn the image of the first Sims3 I get an error message that there isn't enough space to burn the image.

The image size appears as 5,063 mb while the Disc size is 4,482 mb (the DVD i am using is 4.7gb which is pretty much the standard size).

Am i doing something wrong here?

Please advise and thank you for your time and attention to my query

Hello,
You don't have to burn it to an actual DVD, you can always mount the virtual image (iso) to a virtual drive like Daemontools.
Since you're new to this, I strongly recommend getting G4TW mounting guide here, and you can also watch an instruction video to help you install the game here.
If you have any more questions, please let us know.

Forgive my ignorance. I have dl the Daemon tool and I have another question.

The Sims3 first file that I had dl after extracting (using IZarc) is a ''daa' file and not an 'Disc Image File'. All the other files ('World Adventures to Town Life Stuff) are 'Disc Image Files'.

What am I to do with the first Sims 3 file that is .daa? I was told to be sure to insure the files in the order of 1 to 9 but file 1 is a .daa.

Hello,

Please use WinRAR (Download from www.games4theworld.org) to extract the .rar files.
First tell me, where did you download the files from? I assume they are not from ® Games4theworld?

i dl the files from isohunt + 325946001 sims+3


But from there I was told to come to games4theworld for help. The files seem to have been extracted properly but the only file that seems to have a problem is the Sims 3 file # 1. which shows up as .daa instead of as a disc image file.

Okay then, we will try tonight or this weekend. Thank you and enjoy your day.

//EDIT

I have decided to start all over. I deleted the torrent that i had for the entire Sims3 and have dl the Sims3 MAster Suite from your site.

looking at the instructions, it says "1. Install The Sims 3 base game. (If you've already installed the base game, ignore this step!)"

However, it doesn't say where to obtain the 'base game' and looking over your dl site i dont see any 'Sims3 base game' available.

Please help (anyone).

Thank you, i did look at that page already and i dont see any Sims3 "base game".

I can only assume that the wording "base game" doesnt refer to an actual dl but is a generic word?

If so what file should I dl and install BEFORE i install the 'master suite' and the related expansions?

I know I am coming across as a 'technoramus' and i am sorry. i am just doing this for my daughter as her laptop was stolen and I need to restall SIms3 for her and i dont have the cds anymore.

Thanks again for your assistance.

Hello,
No problem, we're here to help. It indeed isn't called "base game", look for "The Sims 3".

Hello,

You only need it to update via EA's servers, but I recommend using the manual patch instead.
So no, you do not need it.

No, only once, if you're out-dated.
