Sims 3 packs (old installs) not showing in Origin purchases

★★★★ Novice

Hi, I've purchased all Sim 3 expansion, stuff and world packs but they're not all showing up in Origin purchases.

As I've had them all installed for ages now (started playing when Sims 3 first came out) I can't find all my register codes - most of them are from old packs bought at game shops, it's been that long since I bought them and had them installed.

What's the best way to get them showing up in my Origin purchases?

Cheers

Alex

@AlexOwla  The only way to get your packs to show up in Origin is to register your codes.  Even if you've lost the disc cases, you can still find the codes on any computer where the game is installed, and sometimes on a system where it was uninstalled but the game files weren't completely cleaned out.  Here's how:
