Re: Error occurs after I installed the Movie Stuff

Same here.

My game had already updated to the latest version(1.57.62.023003)

and restarting computer doesn't work.

The Sims 3 system still keeps trolling me to insert a different disc(Movie Stuff and Island Paradise). Confusedmileyindifferent:

Moved your thread together with the rest. I hope this can be looked into. Better if all cases are in one thread. Makes it easier.

We forwarded your information to the studio. I hope they'll come back to us soon.

 

There is a workaround that will let you play, but that would mean un-installing all your games and downloading and re-installing them through the Origin client. But this is a lot of work and a lot of stuff to download, I wouldn't do it until we know that this is the only possible solution.

 

We'll get back to you as soon as we know more, promise.

If I purchase the new into the future expansion pack will the game work? Or will it have the same problem?

You could just download the download version through Origin instead. You don't have to pay for it again. Just register the game and it should show up in myGames.
