Sims transfer from one computer to another

★ Newbie

I just got a new mac book and was wondering how you transfer Sims 3 to a new mac. When I went on to Sims the game works but my saved games are not there only the option to start a new game. Where can I find my old saved games? I found them on my back up drive but do not know how to transfer them.

Re: Sims transfer from one computer to another

connect the other drive to your computer find your save file open it  then on your computer go to the ea/the sims3 folder open the folder then look for folder save games open that  then copy and paste each save game into the folder



solutions are 50/50 they work for some and not others and vice versa
