Sims 3 ERROR MESSAGE "No disc found please insert...." at main menu in game

★★★★ Novice

So a friend and me decided to download eachothers expansion packs' I have the Sims 3, supernatural, generations installed. I wanted to install the seasons. I understand that I need the newer disc to play. So I redeemed my code on Origin and sims3.com for Seasons. And installed the game to my computer.  I am now able to play without using a disc. HOWEVER, when I am at the main menu in the game. (when you choose your towns)  it says "no disc found please insert Sims 3 seasons to continue. I thought the whole point of me downloading and redeeming my code was to be able to play without a disc? How do I fix this? I just want to play the Sims 3 without the Sims 3  seasons disc and still having the expansion pack installed. PLEASE HELP.

Did you ever install Seasons from the disk before or just the download version ?

So did you uninstall the disk version before downloading it from online ? It does sound like the game thinks that the disk version is still installed.
