Is the sims 3 late night expansion pack compatible to the windows 8


store bought, probably not. Game needs to have patch 1.42 installed manually from this site: " http://www.thesims3.com/game/patches " and then run the launcher for the game, once the game is installed.

Sims life stories is not recognised when i put it in the disc drive, whats wrong? my laptop is a toshiba.


Try another CD and see if it is recognized. If it can't read another cd then you might trying cleaning the drive carefully. If that doesn't work the drive may need to be replaced.

If it can read another cd then you probably need to clean the sim life cd with a non abrasive rag and a little water. Even a finger print can sometimes cause it not to read. Hold the cd up to a light and see if you see any light showing through as there may be a chip out of the top surface. This can make the cd unreadable. If there are an excessive amount of scratches on the cd that can keep it from being read. Check the cd on another computer.

Freezing game


Problem with your memory, but mainly probably you have a celeron CPU that is low on cash memory which is needed to render extreme graphics.
Try increasing your memory by adding more RAM to your system, or install a gaming card to help with you graphics defficiency.
