Just got the Sims 2 and i've installed it, that bit is no problem, however now when i try to actually play the game the Sims 2 screen pops up then a message pops up saying something about can't read the disc, application error.

Anyone know what's up with it?

Are you sure you dont just need to download the update from the manufacturers website? Or is that something else? Thats what I have to do when I got a video card message anyways.

I'll admit the Sims 2 has some (few) new interesting additions, like making a family of misshaped headed freaks and seeing the mutant offspring they bring into the world. Other than that, bleh.

I'm in agreement with the others, get an exchange.

I can't see what problems you'd have if you had the DVD game (unless, of course, you didn't have a DVD drive in which case you wouldn't be able to run the game anyway) my sister has the CD version and it runs fine through our DVD drive.

Reinstalled it a couple of times no luck, i've been on a couple of message boards and they were talking about DVD and CD versions. I'm guessing i've got the CD one as it's on 4 discs so i doubt that's what's wrong with it.


Meh stupid bloody PC, never can get any game to install properly first time
