If it's a manual patch, you just downloaded the wrong region version for your game. There should be a universal patch that's a bit of a larger file if you aren't sure what region your game is.

Well, not sure if this will help but I had the same problem. I tried to change the region code in the Registry Editor and it gave me the same message, so I downloaded the manual patch from the forum (Found Here), however it was giving me an error message about not being able to validate the game version or some sort. After fiddling around with the MP for a couple hours I nearly smacked myself when I tried what I thought to be a worthless action- I right-clicked the Manual Patch .exe file and clicked 'Run as Administrator'.
Lo and behold the patch worked, my game was updated, and happiness was had by all. Anywho, point is you should try downloading the MP and if it gives you issues, try what I did. It may work the same for you, may not, but it's worth a shot at least. Good luck.

You're welcome, glad I could help. I know how frustrating it is when these things don't go right and you can't figure out why. Smile

Well, i got it to update just fine, but after updating it, when i try to play it says 'please insert disc'. Oddly enough when i downloaded supernatural, all i had to do was click on autorun, it installed, and then i was able to play it. I never had to mount it, ever, and now that i updated it it wont work. Im not sure what to do, ive tried to get it to mount, but it just comes up with this error message. Have any ideas?

Hello,

Unmount everything regarding The Sims 3 and just do step 3 and 4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

That should do, good luck!
