Help Please. Sims 3 asking for Disk. [SOLVED]

Post by mercurypagen on Fri 08 Jun 2012, 00:04

Hello there,


This is my first post to this forum though I have been lurking for a bit and I absolutely love this site. I think it's wonderful what you guys have been able to do. Now...here is my situation.


I have the base and all the stuff/expansions from retail EXCEPT for Showtime and now Sweet Treats. Those I got here. I was able to originally download Showtime and play with no problem. Along comes patch update 1.34, so I wait till the new Fix is up before going to update. I see that Sweet Treats is available at the same time...so I download that and follow the install instructions prior to applying the new Fix. When I go to start the game, the launcher asks for the game disk. I, of course, don't have one. I'm rather stuck.

I followed each step in the instructions guide to the T, applying the final crack in the base game bin folder and no the expansions folder like I'm supposed to.

I even uninstalled/reinstalled the base game to make sure I had fresh .exe and .dll files to replace with the crack from the Fix. Still nothing.

I don't know what else to do. I remember mounting Showtime to a virtual drive using powerISO, but I can't remember how to do that right now.

Help?

I just tried what you suggested.

A fresh download of the latest fix.

All CC and mods removed to my desktop

Game is unmounted from my HD

Latest Fix reapplied into the programs (X86)/EA/Sims 3/Game/Bin folder, replacing the files within

It is still asking me for the disk to be inserted before I can play. Maybe a full uninstall/reinstall of everything?

Hello,

No need to reinstall!
Can you please post a screenshot of the file you copied to the EA/Sims 3/Game/Bin folder?

Absolutely. Thank you so much.


The shot is where the files are placed. You can see the path to the folder. They replaced the existing files in the same folder.

I have done this several times and I still don't know what I'm missing. I have taken out all downloads, mods and CC, and unmounted the game from my virtual drives.




ok I have been fighting with this stupid thing for half an hour now...I keep getting different error messages when I try to upload the screenshot. The size and extension format I can understand but the final one says it cannot be uplpaded due to storage size? Could not upload file : exceeded total storage space. (Free space : 16) is the message I get.

Thank you. I did notice that the Date Modified on the newest Fix was April 5th. I don't know if that is right or if it should be more recent since it was just redone for the new patch? I know I used the link for the newest release of the fix.
