How can I install The Sims 3 without a disc?

I bought The Sims 3 Plus Supernatural, and I redeemed the game codes on thesims3.com, and I have the 2 discs, but my laptop doesn't have a disc player, and I looked all over the website, but there is no way to directly download The Sims 3. Please help! :smileysad:

Re: How can I install The Sims 3 without a disc?

if you have a usb cd player you can install your game that way install sims3 base game first then install the supernaturel you will only need the supernaturel disc to play then or are your  games registered with origin ? if so go to origin go to "my games" you can dowload the digital version of your game there

No, I don't have one and I don't have those games tied with Origin either...

Re: How can I install The Sims 3 without a disc?

The code should be in the information pamplet in your box. I found my 2 on the last page.

That's the problem I lost those pamplets. I wish there was like an operrater that you call about these issues on sims3 and they would guide you through it.

Share that idea by clicking the button in the EA Answer HQ The Sims 3 home page. Also, I'm pretty sure you can't get any codes without the pamplet. Sorry.

Re: How can I install The Sims 3 without a disc?

Ok... that pretty much sucks... I read more about it on search pages and from what I read you can find a way to make it work without the cd and the code you just have to get help from a "pro"
