Disc Authentication Error (No error code) for Generations.[SOLVED]

Post by ArcanaAwaits on Mon 30 Jul 2012, 13:28

After installing The Sims 3, I installed Generations first, then Late Night, and then Ambitions. Everything went fine, I got the updates and followed the directions of "MUST READ - How to install The Sims 3 correctly). Except, I didn't download the manual patch before I put the crack in. NOTE: The game was able to automatically update to 1.36, so I figured the update was unnecessary (granted I updated AFTER the crack). I opened the launcher, no issues there, and it updated again for a brief second. I clicked the start button and I got a message saying, "Disc Authentication Error: No game disc found! Please insert The Sims 3 Generations game disc before proceeding". I still have the Generations ISO mounted and I'm getting the same error. Should I uninstall all of the expansions (minus Generations, assuming) and download the manual patch, then reinstall? I'm at a total blank as to what to do. It should also be noted that I did install Origin.

Hello,

Actually, this page doesn't say anything about mounting, am I right?

Hello,

You used the patch after you cracked it. The patch has overwritten your crack. That's why your game is asking for a disc.
