i seriously need help!
i love the sims 2, its the best :)
so I bought the sims 2 deluxe CD.. I installed it, no problem there, but then there were options lke this;
Launch Game (or something along the lines of that)
so I wanted to play it right? so I clicked LAUNCH. then the logo with the SIMS 2 came up.
then an Error window came up;
Please Insert Correct CD-ROM, select OK, and restart application.
I DID insert the correct CD-ROM. after the installation it said please insert CD 1 to play game.
i did. then that error message came up. so I am REALLY confused because I know that it is the correct CD!
PLEASE HELP ME if there is anyone out there! :) do it for SIMS!
Go into device manager and under IDE controllers, go to properties for the Bus Master (it might be named differently for other chipsets) and click Update Driver.
Install from a list, then select "Don't search. I will choose..." and select the 'Standard Dual-Channel PCI IDE..." and click Next to install it. When done, reboot and try again.
This is sometimes caused by having a virtual drive. The game seems to try to read from that instead of your physical drive. Try removing any virtual drives and run the program again. (Programs such as DAEMON tools are used to make virtual drives, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_drive to read more on virtual drives).
