To verify whether the problem is with your cd drive or with your sims 2 disk, try running a different disk in the drive. If you are successful in opening and running the other disk, then your cd drive is fine and your sims 2 disk is faulty. If you've had the sims 2 disk for a while, it may be scratched.
If the other disk shows the same symptoms, I would suspect that your cd drive is bad and needs to be replaced.
I also have Sim City 4 Deluxe edition, and the package came with 2 CDs. Which were, the download and installation CD, and the gameplay CD. Now if you put in the Game Play CD without putting the Download and Installation CD in first, then that message might come. And if not, then the Gmae Play CD might be damaged, you can try rubbing alcohal and blowing on the CD, but if that doesn't work, see if you still have a warranty and try replacing the CD.
Does your laptop have a DVD drive? It is likely that the Sims Double Deluxe disk you have is a DVD ROM and not a CD ROM.
If this is not the case, try clicking My Computer and selecting the CD drive to see if the computer recognises the disk at all. Run setup.exe if it does.
