Install Sims 3 on computer without disc drive

★★★★ Newbie

My brother and I just got a new laptop but it doesn't have a disc drive and we already have the Sims 3 on disc...

How do we install the game without having to purchase it again?


Please help us!

Re: Install Sims 3 on computer without disc drive


When you register the game at, the games are added to your myGames library on the Origin client.


You can download the download version from there.

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
