    Seriously. Its rude.

    Try copy the whole CD to the desktop under a new folder, and check if your CD has any scratches or whatever on it.
    Try a different CD/DVD drive.. try it on another pc to confirm that its a working cd.. that should start you off.

    i've installed sims 2 on this computer before, but we had to get it cleaned or something and start all over.
    so i;m trying to install it again, and it says :

    A problem occured when trying to transfer the file 'TSData\Res\Sound\Voice3.package' from the media.

    It started doing that at about 30%, i think. And i kept clicking retry until it got to 100% but i am still having the same problem. i didnt have this problem when i first got the game.

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!
    thanks :)

    The Sims 2 Install

    Hey everyone, I am new to this thread thing. I just bought the sims 2 on this past Friday, i purchased it once before and I'm having the same prob. now that I did then. It reads disc one and installs it just fine. Then at 23% it asks me to insert disc 2 so i do, and it never proceeds, it stays at 23% no matter how long i wait! I have went to the ea tech support site, and i tried all the things they list for the installation troubles, and none have worked. I really want to play my game, and I'm just so stressed out with it, b/c i have tried everything, even installing a NVidia drive from their website, like it says, and still nothing. My computer meets all the System Requirements.

    I have a Dell Deminsion 2400 Windows XP home edition. My graphics card is the Intel(R)82845G and I do have the Direct x 9.0 stuff, please HELP!!!!

    Thnx, Haylee! please email me if you get anything to help me with this!!!!!!

    My problem is not the same as any of the usual Sims 2 problems. For some reason, the installation screen won't even come up. Nothing comes up when I insert the game in. I have tried going to Run... and typing in E:\Autorun, I have tried restarting the computer with the disk in, and I have tried going to My Computer and opening CD-RW Drive (E:). I have no background applications when I do these things. I'm doing everything that has been suggested, and still no success. Am I missing something, or do I just have a faulty disk?

    Try temporarily disabling your anti-virus program while you install it or you can try to install it in safe mode.

    I don't have the game but this Epinions site says there are two disks. Another clue would be if the disk says disk one or disk two on it. Games with only one disk have no need to say this.

    gothgirl, although it's different now, it sounds like the game never worked on your PC anyway. Is that correct?

    It might be that your PC or laptop doesn't meet the minimum requirements of the game, some of which are not obvious at first glance. Can you post your PC specifications so we may see?

But now every time it gets around like 34% it says this: 'A problem occurred when trying to transfer the file 'TSData\Res\Sims3D\Sims13.package'from the media.Do you want to retry to copy the file, or cancel the installation?'

    I have no idea what to do. Ive clicked retry PLENTY of times. but it still wont work.

    I had the same problem exactly,i've tried everything but nothing worked.So i went back to the store and the salesman finally gave me the solution!!So,here's what to do:
    1)Copy the cd1 anywhere to your computer
    2)Go to the file Support/es. There you will see the file Leéme.txt.Rewrite the name of the file and replace "é" with "e". (Leeme.txt)
    3)Then go to the file Support/sv, to the file "Lásmig.txt" and do the exact same thing as above.(Lasmig.txt instead of Lásmig.txt)
    4)Choose "Autorun",from the copied cd1 and continue with the installation!

    Okies, Im in desprate need of help.
    With my old sims 2 disks, It went to disk 2, Then froze, I minimized it for a second, Then it said Sims 2 (Not Responding). So I thought It was just the CD.
    So my mom bought me a new one, The Sims 2 Deluxe, It installed fine, it only has one cd. I tried installing expansion packs, It froze on the second disk, I tried more than one expansion pack. I tried installing it on my mothers laptop, The same issue happened. Seriously, I tried 4 Expansions, the same problem happens on two computers!!!! Please help me!. :(
