It claims code was already used

★★ Newbie

To whom it may concern,

I purchased "The Sims 3 Starter Pack" today in "Game Stop" in Ireland.

I witnessed the employee finding the correct dvd and leaflet and placing it in the case. It was obvious the dvd had not been used before.

When I returned home and tried to download it, Origin asked me to make an account which i did, it then ask me to type in the product code.

I confirmed that it was a "The Sims 3" I was trying to download and it proceed to tell me that "This code has already been used".

I tried the Late Night CD that accompanied The Sims 3 CD and there was no problems-except for the obvious one that it won't work without the base game.

Please help me to resolve this issue.

Thanks.
