If you're computer is having troubles detecting Sims 3 game after you've installed it, which is preventing you from playing it, than you're at the right place, I've a quick and simple fix.

First of all, this is probably the error you're getting:
Disc Authentication Failure
No Game disc found! Please insert the sims 3 game disc.


If the above error is what you’re getting, you’ve come to the right place. Or if you simply want to know how to play your game without the disc in your computer, this is also the right place.

NOTE: This will only work on legit copies of the game! I do not condone pirating, especially of an awesome game like this!



This will take only a few minutes to fix! Here are the steps:

1. First you'll need to download this file
http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/controlpanel.php?category=downloads&download=sims3discerrorfix

2. Extract the file you downloaded (with a pc, right click file and choose 'Extract All...').

3. Now you must find the folder the game was installed to:

If you're using Windows Vista, Browse to the following location on your computer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
(if you're using internet explorer, you can copy the above location and paste it into your address bar in this window and the folder will pop up in a separate window)
If you can't find it, click the Circle with the Windows Flag in it at the bottom corner of your screen, than go to Computer, than go to Local Disk (C:) than go to Program Files, than go to Electronic Arts, than go to The Sims 3, than go to Game and than go to Bin (please note that it may not show the files and ask you if you want to show the files, it's safe to show the files)

If you're using Windows XP, Browse to the following location on your computer:
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
(if you're using internet explorer, you can copy the above location and paste it into your address bar in this window and the folder will pop up in a separate window)
If you can't find it, go to My Computer, than go to Local Disk (C:) than go to Program Files, than go to Electronic Arts, than go to The Sims 3, than go to Game and than go to Bin (please note that it may not show the files and ask you if you want to show the files, it's safe to show the files)

If you're using a Mac, Browse to the following location on your computer:
Macintosh HD\Applications\The Sims 3\The Sims3.app (you need to right click and choose "Show Contents"!)\Contents\Resources\transgaming\c_drive\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

4. Drag the files from that extracted folder from step 2 into this folder that you just browsed to (be sure to replace the files already in that bin folder).

5. Now when you go to play the game, it should work right away! Also note that you can now play the game without the disc if you want.

To sum things up, you basically just need to extract that file into the bin folder of the Sims 3 installation folder


That's it! The game should work just fine now. Enjoy
If this did not work, you can try out another procedure which should fix it here:
http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/thread.php?id=5549


If this worked for you, please let me know, it's good to tally up how many people got this working with my help.
If this didn't work for you, please also let me know and I can help you get it working.

well I'm glad you figured it out.... I'm pretty sure as long as you follow the instructions as they are written that it should get things rolling.

You are playing a non-final, unauthorized copy of The Sims 3.

This is the error that persist to happen when i open the launcher and no body seems to know how to solve it out, do you guys have an idea how to get it working? I can't get any custom content installed this way, there must be some way to fix it tbh isnt there

Browse to the folder which you put those files in that you downloaded and from that folder, open up the TS3.exe file. Let me know if that works.

Yeah I can't help you with the custom content, I haven't tried doing that myself yet. But you got the game running and everything?

You'd see that message when you've loaded the launcher and pressed the Play game button.

I tried to use this on my Mac, but it is not working. I copied the files into the bin folder (/Applications/The Sims 3.localized/The Sims3.app/Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin), but when I try to run the game, it still tells me that I need to insert the disk. Do you know if this works on Mac, and do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

I think this may only work if you have the legal copy of the game too, ive seen on some forums that people who downloaded the game cant get the cd cracks to work, not sure, but i know for sure if you have the legal game for pc, are using vista and use davids fix, everything should work out fine, i just put like an O at the end to keep the original files, like TS3O.exe on my originals so i didnt overwrite them, they are still there, then just moved the others into the bin folder, anyway thanks again david

Stevenbenton brings up a good point, this is only meant to work on legal copies. And yeap, glad you got it working

littleostrich: This only works for windows, sorry but I don't own a mac so have no way of figuring out how to get it to work on a mac

Yes, you're suppose to simply extract the files into the bin folder. Let me know if that works.
