Sims 3 Gameplay Disk

[ Edited ]

Hello. So, I recently bought a new laptop that does not have a dvd/cd-rom drive. Therefore,  I can not play/insert my Sims 3 game/disc. Is there a way for me to download it online, use my purchased copies code, and continue to play?

you can use a portable usb cd/dvd drive if you have one handy , or download origin to the laptop if it's a mac get the mac version of origin  redeem the code then download the digital version of the game your origin account and the sims 3 account use the same email and password if you regestir the games in your origin account first you do not need to regestir them again in the sims 3 account
