Hey game geniuses out there, some of our readers are experiencing technical difficulties installing the Sims 2 Holiday Edition. The installation process keeps asking for disk 1, even after they’ve inserted it. Ideas? Suggestions?
Update: Someone at The Sims Zone, posted a similar question: “Ive already put disc no.1 before I open the program then when i try to play it i get this message “please instert the correct dvd-rom,select ok and restart application”. No one has posted any solutions, yet, but you can keep watching it and this, to see if anyone comes up with anything. If someone does, I’ll update here.
Update #2: Suggestion, by Tor (thanks!): What you could try is making an iso/mirror of the CD, then use Daemon Tools to mount it.. Somehow the computer has an easier task to figure out the CD if it has all the files in a nice little iso.
Update #3: This might actually be your problem: Which version did you all buy?
The Sims 2 Holiday Edition
The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack
Holiday edition is the full game of Sims 2 Plus the expansion.
The Party Pack is just the add-on content. Note the $40/$15 dollar prices (Respectively)
that may be causing an issue to those of you who already have the Sims 2 installed, because it wants to install the Sims 2, but you already have it installed, so it’s asking for the first disk.
