@Reeselh07  It doesn't matter that you downloaded Supernatural on a different computer.  What does matter is if you never registered it, or you registered it to a different account.  In the first case, as long as you still have the code for the pack, you can add it to your account now.  In the second case, you'd need to contact EA customer support and ask that the account with Supernatural on it be merged with your main one.

You can also contact support if you're not sure what happened to the pack or its code, but you'll need to be able to demonstrate ownership in some way.  For example, show the pack in your Origin purchase history, or take a picture of the disc, case, and insert with the code printed on the back.  You can upload these images directly to a live chat session.

@EA_Stephen I have purchased the Sims 3 Pets and cancelled the download as I had trouble downloading the sims Sims 3 original. Now I want to add the expansion pack and it says I have Purchased Pets but it takes me to my library and nothing is there. I have tried what you have suggested but nothing has worked. This is the same for adding the other expansion packs that I have bought!

Re: how to redownload my game from origin?

@izzygould12345  Try clearing Origin's cache (Windows) or running the Origin reset tool (macOS).

https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/origin/origin/how-to-reset-origin-on-mac/

 

Restart your computer afterwards.  Open your Origin game library, click on the Sims 3 icon, select More > Expansion Packs (it's below the last played date), and scroll through the list.  What do the orange buttons say on the expansions you've bought?  If they say Download, go ahead and click to download.  If they say installed, check your in-game content to see whether they're installed.

 

If one or more packs are listed as installed but don't show in-game, try repairing the game in Origin: right-click on the Sims 3 icon in your Origin ilbrary and select Repair.  Then restart your computer and check again.

 

If one or more packs are still missing after the repair, or if Origin is telling you to buy a pack you already own, you'll need to contact EA customer support for help.  Although phone calls are unavaliable right now, live chat is open from 9 am to midnight.

I’m having the same problem, I’m using the right account and everything. I go to my games with the disc in

and when I go to put in the product code to hopefully redownload it. It just tells me this code has been used

Re: how to redownload my game from origin?

@SmolBunnYummy  The code probably already has been used, by you, the last time you installed the game.  Does Sims 3 appear in your Origin library?  If so, you can just download it directly from there rather than needing to use the disc.
