Hey all....

I have the sims 2 dvd edition along with both of the expansion packs. I was trying to upload a neighborhood after trying to move some neighborhoods around. Needless to say the game wouldn't start after doing this. So I uninstalled the two expansion packs and the game. Now I'm trying to reinstall the orinigal Sims 2 dvd edition disc and autoplay won't start, and when I try to open manually, when I click on my DVD rw/rom drive it tells me to please insert the disc. I tried the disc on another computer and it works. I also put a different game and a dvd movie into my dvd drive and it works. I also read that there could be norton conflications so i also shut those down. Is there anything I can do? I'm thinking about just re formatting and start from scratch? Any help would be great.

This game doesn't like it if you use cloned/virtual drives or programs such as Alcohol because it thinks you're trying to pirate it.

If you use any of these applications or similiar ventures, shut them down and try again.
