Hello,

Usually you don't need to extract them, but it's best to do so, yes. And remove the extracted files when you've installed the game.
You do not need to manually create any folders. Please remove all folders you created. The game will create all needed folders during the installation.
You can always add more expansions later. All you need to do is re-doing step 3 to 5: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Hello,

First, Mount both
images. When the installation asks for Disk 1, click 'Browse' and select óne of the two Mounted Images. If you get an error, just click the other image you Mounted. When the Installation asks for Disk 2, do the same. The Installation should go on now.
If you still don't understand the above, please watch our Installation Video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dm1i-P4I7bc
