CloneCD... The SIMS: Hot Date

Hi,

I own The SIMS (English/Traditional Chinese in one)
installed English, running perfectly.

I bought The SIMS Hot Dates
(English/Traditional Chinese in one also)
can’t install even with original…
It saod that “I don’t have the correct CD” right after I
punch the CD Key on the CD Case.

I tried copied with a Plex 12/10/32A… and have the same
result. I suspect the CDRW and bought a Liteon 40125S
with the latest firmware (ZS0N).
The Copy burn fine… but also the same result,
“I don’t have the correct CD” blah blah…

I even tried latest Daemon Tools 3.23 with SafeDisc Emulation.
doesn’t work either…

So… the problem remains…
do I have a bad original copy or what?

I read posts and did the 4x/ignore subchannel/FES On stuff
tried CloneCD… DiskDump…

Well… don’t have a clone.

Anybody have any advice would be very welcome. :bow:

What is your OS?

What type (make and model) of writer/reader do you have?

Have you tried installing them from different reader/writer?

You might be experiencing a problem with the sims being installed from a cdrw drive. Some games have a check to see if the game is a cdr and to see if it is in a rw. Hence it may not work.

Windows 2000 Pro

ehh… Lite-on 40125S

haven’t try install with a different writer.

but I tried Daemon Tools to test the dumped image and failed.

Well… I dump the CD from the LTR-40125S…

So I should try installing with a CDROM instead?

Sorry… my mistakes…

No problems now, thanks to all that helps.
