    I'm having the same issue. I tried seeing if my computer would read other disks that are similar type programs. No problems there. The disk is fine, since it seems to open on the other household computers, so it's not a problem of a bad or scratched up disk. I just can't get MY computer to read it. Argh!!!

This may or may not be the solution. I had the same problem and it turns out my computer only has a CD-Rom drive and the Double Deluxe requires a DVD-Rom drive. If this isn't the case, then I don't know what it is. :[

Windows xp cd with sp3 installation


In BIOS change the boot order such that CD/DVD comes first. You will also need to make sure your hard drive runs in IDE mode since Windows XP doesn't support sata drives by default. FYI XP is going end of life early 2014.

Install windows xp3


I hope you mean SP3(Service Pack 3) on XP. Please follow these steps

Do one of the following:

  • If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.


  • If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.


  1. On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

  3. After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  4. If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.

I put in the sims2 double deluxe disc and i click on the auto run button and it said 'put in the original disc'


make sure your running the correct installation cd first and not a copy that somebody may have made.

Also try other cd's in the drive just to make sure the drive is working properly cause if the laser is going bad it will give you weird messages. If the drive is working properly then verify you have the right disks in the package and make sure they aren't copies of the games cause that can cause that message to come up.

Wrong disc??how can i solve it??


Try uninstalling the orignal and expansion pack. If you have any other expansion packs uninstall them aswell. Install it all from scratch. If the problem doesnt subside, check your System Requirements, it may be that your computer doesnt support the data from Sims2.

I put my brand new game,the sims 2 double deluxe, disc into the drive and my computer is a windows xp, nothing asks me if i want to install the game or anything! please help, i really want to play my game!


Enter the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. From there you should find an icon named sims 2 or an abbreviation of that. Then right click on that and click autorun, if nothing happens right click then click open. Then look for a file named SETUP or a file with setup in it.

  1. my computer
  2. Sims2
  3. right click on autorun or open and find the setup file
