How to play The Sims 3 through Origin??

Now I downloaded Origin on my computer, and added all my Sims 3 games, have heard that it should be so much easier to play (because you do not have to use CDs) but when I log into my Origin account and press "play" and then get into the launcher for The Sims 3, then comes the message "insert the CD..." (for example Showtime) and nothing happens .. why?

How do I get to play without CD / DVD??

Plz help me!
