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
or

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.

[Thanks, Matt!!]

    Just my thoughts anyhow.

  • Lindsey

    ohhhh, thats why i was mad because it was 35 dollars and the internet only said 15. i bought the sims 2 holiday edition. GOD now im very mad!!!!!!!! i think thats my problem, and everyone elses. so should i just uninstall everything and put that in for my original sims 2? thats why there was four disks for an expansion pack haha god i was so confused. thank you that helped a lot.

  • http://www.steelmaelstrom.com Matt

    Heheh. Np. Actually, I think you should return your Holiday Edition and get the Party Pack instead. This way you get some money back and you don’t have to uninstall your current game. But if you don’t have that option then yeah, find some way to save your games and then uninstall and reinstall with your Holiday Edition.

  • Tor

    I don’t know about you “down in the states” if that’s where you are, but atleast here in Norway we can’t trade a game back if the seal is broken :(

  • Mia

    I called EA tech support, and I’m upset!! It turns out we didn’t even have to buy the Holiday edition game, we could have just simply went online and downloaded the Party pack for 19.99 on the Sims 2 website!!!
    I feel like screaming, because now, we have to uninstall Sims 2, and all expansions just to download the Holiday edition. The SIMS 2 holiday edition is for those who never had the 1st Sims 2. So this edition is merely what we already have but with “party pack extras”. So now I have to copy my Sims 2 folder to the desktop (just so I can keep my downloaded items, houses, etc), then uninstall all the games, re-install Holiday edition, University, and Nightlife, just to get a freakin’ party pack of 40 or so items!!!!! Can you tell I’m angry??? But that’s what you all have to do.

  • Mia

    And in the US, once we open the game….it’s ours to keep. (I’m really mad)

  • Tor

    How about… you sell it to someone who wants it for like 30$ (friends, E-bay or whatever) and just go download it of the website, less money spent, less time spent, less angriness err… wasted? :P Just a suggestion though

  • kelli

    ok, my problem is that i installed the Holiday Edition but first i had to uninstall everything else because i already had the Sims 2. so then i got on to play and it loaded and wasn’t being slow or anything, but when i’d click on a house or to create a person, it wouldn’t go. it would load but just stay on the same little loading screen with the hour glass still moving and the music still playing. HOW CAN I FIX THIS?!! i tried restarting my computer already.
    thanks!

  • PZ

    I did the same thing and no cannot return. So, when you uninstall all 3 games do you have to uninstall them in any order?

  • kelli

    All i did was uninstall the expansion packs first and then the Sims 2. But i don’t think you have to uninstall them in any specific order. Do you know where i can go to get help with my little problem? (unless you know how to help):)

  • Tor

    What’s your problem? if you uninstalled everything and managed to install the holliday thingy, it works, no? :)

  • Kelli

    well, before i uninstalled everything and then reinstalled them with the Holiday Edition, everything worked perfectly fine. but now it wont let me play.

  • http://www.steelmaelstrom.com Matt

    Have you gotten any patches for it?

  • Angel

    I want to move the holiday pack to another computer. Which file should I move?

    Thanks in advance!

  • http://www.steelmaelstrom.com Matt

    I’m thinking there’s probably quite a few you want to move. It depends on what the holiday pack installed. And what files it updated/changed. I don’t have an install to look at so anyone else?

  • amy

    In my area I know for those of you that are looking Electronics Boutique and Software Etc. take games in exchange and sometimes return. At least that way you’ll be able to get a little bit back on your return…. Hope that helps.

  • Lexi

    I don’t need help with tech stuff, I just don’t know how to make Santa come, can anyone tell me that??!!!

  • Mandi

    the sims 2 christmas party pack isnt working! i have the sim 2 and its other expansion packs installed but when i put in the sims 2 christmas party pack it says i already have it installed when it isnt because there isnt any items or any sort in the game! help needed urgently!!!!!!

  • kelli

    patches??? sorry im not really that bright with tech….

  • http://www.simsgamer.com leora Zellman

    Is the holiday pack working for anyone? I have the Sims 2 already with all the expansion packs so I’d get the $20 download, not the brand new game, but is it actually worth it or does everyone have trouble with it?

  • http://www.play-girlz.com Ingrid

    Leora: I think the problem is that people are confused and buying the wrong version of the game, and that’s why they’re experiencing trouble. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the actual software :)

    What a rip off. I got Sims 2 Holiday Edition for X-mas. I already have all the sims games that are out. What i didn’t know is that the sims 2 holiday edition is the very same game as sims 2 except 40 new x-mas objects. Thats a rip off. So i payed like $70 to get 40 new x-mas objects. I had to uninstall all my games and basicly start all over. And to LAURA you have to install the games:1st-the sims 2 game or sims 2 holiday edition 2nd-the sims 2 university 3rd-the sims2 nightlife. Hope this helps out…

    You will need to buy your Sims a Christmas Tree for Santa to arrive. The tree doesn’t need to be placed anywhere special, just needs to be on the lot.

    1)make sure u have a christmas tree.

    2)bake cookies do not let ur sims eat them all especially the fat sims lol. n make sure they r not rotten (the green smokey fing) as u wud KILL SANTA onli jokin.

    3)make sure you sims are a sleep by 9:00

    4)Santa will arrive eat ur damn cookies and leave a present!Santa (Clause will arrive at 10 PM and leave a present for the family. He will then eat a cookie, spend a few hours doing many belly laughs, and use the bathroom a few times. Sims will get a queue an action to see Santa. If you let the Sims see Santa, they will act surprised and then cheer.)
    4)enjoy!

  • soveryfrustrated

    Okay…just got the Sims2 Holiday Edition. I don’t have previous Sims2 games but do have all previous Sims games. Any reason why I it keeps locking up while I’m installing? It always gets hung up at the .dat files between disks. I get from 1 to 2 then it freezes. I restart and then i get to 3 and it freezes. This is so frustrating. I’m gonna kill somebody. Please tell me this is a XP issue or its a user issue. Either one will do at this point.

    Oh please help me. I cannot get my sims to take directions from me. I recently added a multitude of downloads to my game. I put them into the :/programfiles/eagames/thesims2/tsdata/res/catalog/canhobjects file. I already know that you should put them in the downloads folder, but none of the items would show up when I placed them there. I have enabled custom content (I have all eps, including Nightlife). I have tried disabling custom content. Everything but uninstalling. Please help me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey everyone! My friend has all the Sims 2 exp. packs and the Sims 2 game. She is going to let me borrow everything instead of me buying my own but I need to know which exp. pack you use to start the game. I know for the Sims 1 it was Makin’ Magic even if you installed others (like Hot Date or Unleashed) after the Makin’ Magic one. Please help me so I know which exp. pack to purchase, this way my friend and I can both play and I don’t have to spend a hundred dollars on Sims 2 stuff. Thank you!

    the expansion packs should be installed in this order:
    the sims 2 holiday edition

    the sims 2 nightlife
    the sims 2 :open for business

    (dont install the sims 2 as it is exactly like hoilday thingy)

    the sims 2
    the sims 2 christmas party pack

  • Cat

    GGGRRRRRR!!! Can you believe I actually have to RE-INSTALL all my Sims games JUST to play the holiday party pack!!!??? Imagine – THATS LIKE 10 DISCS OF INSTALLATION TO GO THROUGH!!!!

  • Cam

    After reading through this I’m sure most of you have still havent answered the main question!

    Today I bought my wife ‘The Sims 2 Holiday Edition’ after making damn sure it included the first ‘Sims 2′ game, as she hadn’t played any since the original ‘Sims’.
    We installed it, discs 1,2,3 & 4, only to be prompted to put in disc 1 to play. Once we did this it only came up with the same error many other people in here have mentioned, inser corrtect disc and restart game. This was infuriating for both of us.

    After not finding the asnwer here I found EA’s techsupport site, noted in the back of the manual, http://support.ea.com/cgi-bin/ea.cfg/php/enduser/home.php?p_sid=D5gyXQai
    http://support.ea.com/cgi-bin/ea.cfg/php/enduser/cci/ea/cd_troubleshooting.php?p_sid=%3C?%20echo%20$p_sid%20?%20%20%20%20%20%3E

    and systematicly worked through the possible solutions.

    I found the following finally worked for us (note be careful with this, if you change your hard drive by accident, I have no idea what could possibly go wrong):
    Change DMA transfer mode to PIO mode .(This applies only to Windows XP users).

    1. Click Start.
    2. Click Control Panel.
    3. Double-click on System.
    4. Click on the Hardware tab.
    5. Click on the Device Manager button.
    6. Click Switch to Classic View in the left pane.
    7. Double-click IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
    8. Double-click Secondary IDE Channel.
    9. Click on the Advanced Settings tab.

    * Note : If you do not see the Advanced Settings tab, your computer probably has a SCSI (small computer system interface) drive. DMA transfer mode options are not available for SCSI drives.

    1. Under Device 0, select PIO only in the Transfer Mode box.
    2. If you have more than one CD or DVD drive, also select PIO only in the Transfer Mode box under Device 1.

    * WARNING : If Current Transfer Mode under Device 0 or under Device 1 states Not Applicable, that device is not in use. Change only the Devices that do not state Not Applicable. If both devices state Not Applicable, your CD or DVD drive is on the Primary IDE Channel.
    * Double-click Primary IDE Channel.
    * Click on the Advanced Settings tab.
    * Under Device 1, select DMA if available in the Transfer Mode box.
    * WARNING : Device 0 is most likely your hard drive and should not be changed.
    * Click OK.
    * Restart your computer, and then restart the game.

    how do i get full health on sims vacation???????????

    • McKenzie

      Hey! Me and my sister are sims players and she has been playing the game for a couple of years and she told me a cheat if your health is very low you press {on your keyboard} shift + alt + c. Do not do the + that just does nothing. Anyway you should see a box on the top of your computer screen then type MAXMOTIVES in the box. The box should disappear, if to dose not then you typed it in wrong type it in one more time then press the esc button on your keyboard then your health should be restored.

  • jennifer

    Question: I have had The Sims 2 Holiday Edition for about 2 years now and still haven’t been able to install it. I follow the directions in the book but my computer is telling me that i am running the wrong version of The Sims 2. Please insert NightLife. How do i get around this?

    • McKenzie

      the way to get around it is if you have like a newer vershon of the sims like the one you have or the sims 2 seasons or the sims 2 bon boyash. This has happened to me i had to unlode it to play the sims agen.

    Hii everyone i havent found this ANNOYING issue anywhere on any posts on this website so PLEASE SOMEONE HELP THIS IS REALLY ANNOYING.
    Well I love Sims but I only have Sims 2 Double Deluxe. My friend has sims 2 pets so her dad knew a way i could download it without putting the disc in. PROBLEM IS i needed to put my memory stick in everytime i played Sims with the PETS expansion pack. So i thought – Why bother? So i uninstalled Sims 2 Pets, but Double Deluxe stayed on my laptop thank God! BUT I HAD A FAMILY OF 10 – 1 TEENAGER, 2 PARENTS, 2 CHILDREN AND FOUR BABIES AND A MASSIVE HOUSE and God damn they were RICH AS EVER THANKS TO CHEATS. [Cheats are posted below that have worked for me!] But i went back on it and ALL MY FAMILIES HAD BEEN DELETED. I GOT SO FAR ON THAT FAMILY NOW IM SO ANGRY. BELIEVE ME ITS NOTHIN COMPARED TO ALL YOUR DIFFICULTIES.
    I need help. If you cant help and if it isnt possible to get my big family that i got so very far on back, then no worries, but id rather u tell me i cant do anythin about it otherwise this wud be a waste of time. thanks

    Cheats =] (press Ctrl + Shift + C to type these in)::
    1. Want twins? type in: forcetwins
    2. Loadza money type in: motherlode (repeatedly)
    3. type in: boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true (exactly THAT) and hold SHIFT whilst clicking on the mailbox, sims, or the dustbin and there’ll be options LIKE FORCE FRIENDS AND MAKE ME KNOW EVERYONE AND if you have PETS there’ll be MAKE A PET

    THESE DO WORK!!!
    TRUST ME XX
    BYEE!!
