Sims 3 Pets Disc autorisation

★★★★ Newbie

Hello, I just bought The Sims 3 and Pets 2 days ago.

 

I was able to play but this morning it says Error, Disc autorisation.

I tried to restart my computer, I looked at the CD and its not scratch or anything.

 

I have a Macbook Pro 2011 with Mountain Lion. I don't know whats going on please help me.

Did you change anything ? Download custom content ? Install a driver ? Install a new program ? Patch ?

I'm not really very familiar with Macs but that's really odd.

 

If you try to open the disk to see it's contents, do you have any issues with that ? Is the game able to read it right ?

 

Here's a few threads from the mac forum:

Try resetting the smc and pram

 

 

to reset the smc on a laptop that you cannot remove the battery this is what you wanna do

 

to reset the smc:1st shut the computer down

 

On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time

 

release them all at the same time and then press the power button again then launch

 

if you still get the same error try this

 

Resetting the pram:

 

when hitting the power button  you will need to hit the CMD + Option + P + R buttons all at the SAME TIME and wait till you here the Macintosh Chime 3 times. You can let go after the 3rd chime. Then attempt to launch if that does not help

 

try verifying the disk permission and then repairing then attempt again,

 

hope this helps.
