Question about EA - Electronic Arts The Sims Double Deluxe for Windows

2 Answers

I can't get my dvd drive to read the sims 2 disk, but it read the sims deluxe edition, help! I just bought it brand new, so no scratches, but I'm not sure how to get it installed. My computer is an old Dell Pentium 4, probably from 2002, and if you need more info, I'll get it.

Try right clicking and selecting "run As".

In vista, run as administrator and in XP uncheck the protect my computer and data from unauthorized program activity checkbox, It will not hurt your computer. I had this same problem and this fixed it for me.

I can't download sims deluxe version on my windows 8 laptop


Hi there, I'm a big fan of the Sims games myself. While I don't know a whole lot about Windows 8, I can say I've gotten older games to run on newer operating systems.

What you could do is try right-clicking the E: drive in My Computer where it lists the Sims CD and click Explore. Through that, you should be able to find the Setup.Exe file and try clicking it to run.

You may have to right-click it and run it in Compatibility Mode (I recommend Windows XP SP2, most games work well with that one).

It's a good sign that your drive reads it, it just might not be recognizing the Autorun file.

Good luck with it, if I think of anything else, I'll update.

A disk read error occurred


Was this read error on the hard drive, or on a disk installed in the CD/DVD player? If it was a hard drive, then running Checkdisk on the drive will detect and isolate any failed areas. If too many failures occur, you may want to consider a new drive before total failure (and loss of data) occurs. If it was a CD/DVD read error, then the disk may e dirty or scratched. The drive may require cleaning. Or, if the disk was burned on a PC and not commercially, the media may not be fully compatible with the drive in your machine. Some media don't work well with some brands of drives. Almost all manufacturers websites list recommended media for their drives.

Drive won't read disk.


Is it just that one disk that the drive has problems with? If so, you may have a defective disk -- it may be scratched or damaged. You can try cleaning it and reinserting it to see if that helps.

If the drive won't read any disk, then you'll need to either get a new drive or get your drive repaired. You can try store-bought DVD drive cleaners, but these can be hit or miss.

Installing the sims 2 double deluxe


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.

I think my cd for my sims deluxe edition is too scratch but i dont want to buy a new game plus it would be hard if not impossible to get this game again so i want to manually install it on my computer i...


if it is installed you just go to www.megagames.com, pc fixes on the sidebar and choose your game and download ano-cd crack =)
if you need to install it try find a torrent to download at www.thrpiratebay.org or www.mininova.org and since you have the key it wont be a problem installing it.
you can also try to set down your reading speed in the dvd-rw/rom so it dont "notice" the scratches =)

Not responding?


if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?
