Installing and running the Sims life, pet and castaway stories without a CD

★★★★ Novice

I have the original game disks for the Sims life, pet and castaway stores, is it possible that I can get these games on Origin as a download turning my physical copies of the games into digital or do I have to find another way to get them to work without the CDs? I have all the serial codes.

Pretty sure this only exists for the Sims 2, but you could try contacting an EA Game Advisor and ask.

Go here to contact EA support: https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/

  • In the upper right corner, choose your region. If it's not there, choose US or UK.
  • Choose a game. For help with an account issue, choose Origin
  • Choose your platform
  • Choose topic and issue to give EA details.
  • Click Select contact option, and hopefully, you get in touch with someone fast!

Here are some tips on how to do it if it's complicated!

Ok, thanks. I'm not sure if EA even has the game as a digital download from Origin, but if they do, that would be great then I give them my serial code and turn my game from physical to digital.
