The disc seems to run as I hear it; but, it doesn't actually download. I bought this Compaq from Best Buy last year and had to wait until games were Vista compatible. I'm completely disgusted with this machine. What is wrong?

This is happening to me too :( So frustrating, the only think I can think of is, have you downloaded any online content like clothes or mesh's? Because that's what I have done and since then my disk is coming up with this same error.
The first thing to check is the disc,, is it scratched, smudged try cleaning it or washing it with a solution of warm water and dawn dishwashing liquid. make the solution about 50/50 it should be slimy but not soapy. rinse it and let it air dry. if it is scratcheed try cleaning it with pledge furniture polish. This works wonders on discs. DO NOT use window cleaner. If the disc is new, it could be defective, exchange it for another. It might just take a longer period of time to load, you can try to wait it out.
If nothing else works, you can try a hard load, where you actually copy the files from the disc to your hard drive and install the game from the hard drive. Look here..
You have to have the disc in your cd/dvd drive to play the game. the game will not play without the disc. If you have any expansion packs installed you need to use the latest expansion disc. For instance, I have Free Time but not Apartment Life so I must have the Free Time disc in the drive to play the Sims 2, not the Sims 2 disc.
hi, best thing to do is to get a "no-cd crack" from one of the file sharing websites eg, piratebay.com. Other than that you could search google for it, you will be give instructions on how to use the crack- its pretty easy. By the way do u know that the picture shows the sims 1?
Actually you need to have bought the original "The Sims" game, this being because the game's code looks for a registration to determine whether or not you bought it... Of course you can illegally get the real game, but that is highly unappreciated. Find a "The Sims" game in an exchange shop or on eBay for really cheap, and that should be the start point you're actually looking for.
