Disk Authorization Failure? [SOLVED]

Post by fl1mn on Thu 21 Jun 2012, 20:57

hi, so I own my base game of the sims 3, but I downloaded late night and showtime, I did everything the directions said, plus I even added the *fix* but I keep getting an error message saying disk authorization failure, we can not verify that your are using a valid version of the Sims 3 or something along those lines, but the game loads and everything, the error message doesnt show up until the family selection page, before loading a neighborhood. What can I do to fix this? PLEASE HELP!!

Hello,

Did you buy the base game via Origin?

yes I did. And I have played the base game by itself before without any problems, the error message only appeared after I downloaded the torrents.

Hello,

Please re-do step 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
But now copy the crack to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin instead.

Good luck!

It's still having problems :/ I tried to make folders for Late night and Showtime within my EA folder? I don't know if that does anything, but after I did that, when I started up the game the music changed to showtime, so I guess it help? But yeah, its still popping up with the disk authorization failure. Here are some screenshots if they help.

Hello,

You're still copying to the wrong folder. There's no need to create any folders!
Please remove the folders you just created and read this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1850-i-installed-the-sims-3-generations-and-or-town-life-stuff-and-or-pets-but-it-keeps-asking-please-insert-cd-dvd-fix-updated-26-10-2011

I keep putting the #crack into this folder. Nothing is changing, maybe its not the crack but another problem? Before I made the folder, which I have now deleted, I put all of the cracks in the folder below, including the main #crack folder, and I had the problem. My game is all updated, so I don't think its that. Could it be the actual torrent I downloaded?

The forum doesn't show the whole image but after The Sims 3 it goes Game>Bin.

Hello,

Look, you're copying the crack to: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin ; this is NOT CORRECT. You should copy the crack to exactly: Local Disk (C:)\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin instead!
