So I have been getting the disk authorization failure whenever I would launch the Sims 3. I have a Macbook and physical copies of the game disks which I bought online form the origin website. (I have WA, ambitions, late night, pets, generations, seasons, diesel, and master suite)
Basically this started happening after I installed a store content patch last week.
I did all the suggestions that I read on other forums, but the only thing that worked was removing my DCcache.
I also tried reinstalling the patch that didn't work either.
I only have store content that I bought from the Sims website. No CC.
once I remove all my store content I can play the game no problem.
But I have at least 30 dollars worth of store content and I want to use it.
How do I play my game without getting that annoying message and with my store stuff.
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Could you install just one item to see if it's ALL store stuff or just one particular one ?

yeah i did that, i uninstalled everything deleted my old DCcache folder and installed like 4 hairstyles and some outfits, and the game worked. so i tried to do the same again so i installed the cars (the prius and etc.) and some furniture and it didn't work. so it definately some items but its gonna be difficult to sort everything out.

See if it's the cars.
I know it's a pain but something is causing this on macs and it would be great if it was just a few items and not all Store content. Don't know what else you can try but weeding through everything.

Well, I don't have a reply to your problem, but my computer used to do the same thing, and then I got origin. But it just started doing it again even though I have origin.
