I'm having trouble getting the Sims 2 to run. I have the DVD-ROM version and have 2 DVD drives. I've never had a problem installing or running any software in the past. I get an error message: "Cannot Locate the CD-ROM". I thought it should be looking for a DVD-ROM? With all correspondence with Electronic Arts, they always send me the same information about checking for emulation software such as Alcohol 120 which I don't have. It also recommends opening the CD-ROM, re-inserting it and restarting the application. Tried that! I dug around in the support files that loaded during install and found a little program that you can run to see if there were any conflicts. It liked the Directx9.0 that I had, but it questioned the driver I was using for the display. So, I downloaded the newest from nVidia. Can anyone offer some help. I'm running Win2000 on an AMD Athlon 2500, with 750 mbs ram, nVidia GeForce4 MX440 PCI video card (64mb), on an ASUS motherboard A7V600-X.
