Ive read the forum and most of the posts but still stuck.
Ive downloaded sims2 created the iso files loaded each of them into a different virtual drive in alcohol. the problem is after starting the installation it asks for me to insert disc 2 how do i fool the installation that i have disc 2 since i cant direct it to look at the virtual drive. Im probably sounding stupid and do feel it lol but for the life of me cant seem to think of a soloution. one suggestion for the hosts of this website perhaps a step by step guide for different either burning a cd or using the virtual drives. if theres one already then apologies. thanks in advance
You’re supposed to mount the second drive. You can mount the first one again if needed. It works like a real CD Drive. You have to pop out the first disc to put in the second.
Could you give me the CD key? I have it too, but no key =\.
If you give me your email address i’ll send you a cd key generator for sims2or search for it on the p2p network
I’ll try what you suggested but almost certain ive done it before and still asks for disc 2
i’ll get it done if it takes me forever lol
Ive just tried what you’ve suggested and it still asks for me to insert disc 2
Let me get this correct i mount the first sims2 iso file 1 let it install and gets to about 23 percent installed and then when it asks for me to install disc 2 i unmount iso 1 and mount iso 2 is that correct if it is then i must be doing something wrong as ive done that several times and still no luck
ps let me know if you still need the the key generator
Done as suggested and still no luck still asks for disc 2 so ive tried the emulation and now this hmmmm not sure what else to try
is there no guides online that might help newbies i think you’d get alot less questions like mine and others that ive seen asking how to do etc if somebody organsied one
its something i thought would be in the faq but nothing
I downloaded The Sims 2 and installed the first CD but i don’t know what to do when it asks for the second one. Everyone keeps saying to mount it, but i have no idea what that means and don’t kno how to do it. Can someone help plz????
Hmmmmmmm.......My post is quite late so I doubt anyone will read it. I suggest you use Daemon Tools for all your needs.
It is a little more user friendly.
Hi, I was browsing the internet trying to find a solution for a similar problem. Although i have downloaded an ISO format file, furthermore, downloaded Daemon Tools, mounted it to a virtual drive. All a piece of cake so far, but when i went through the step by step guide, it says just to open the file once upon completion of all these tasks..I did, and found myself with Sonic to copy a dvd again. Does anyone has a solution to this?
Right, i downloaded the sims 2 main thing without the expansions. i have magic iso. the files i downloaded were .mdf files. So i used the convertor to make them iso files. I dunno why i did that i thought it would help. Anyways, there is four iso files now, which i think are each disks. i am only using one drive at a time as sum dude mentioned before is logical. I mounted disk 1 then istalled it. A message poped up and it saide please insert disk 2. So i went back to magic iso and mounted disk to to the same drive. It continued and asked for disk three so i did the same. I finshed installing it and i clicked launch sims 2. It told me to insert disk one so i mounted that one one. It loaded and then said 'please insert the correct cd rom and click ok and restart the application. I dunno where to go from here. please help. i am using vista if that helps. Here are the keys i got aswell. The Sims 2

Right, i got it sorted. This is step by step plan to installing the main sims 2 (all four disks)and bonvoyage. The reason i installed bon voyage i because i learnt that you cant play the sims 2 without any expansion packs. This is how i done it.
1, download sims two, there should be four disks, in .mdf files. download bon voyage too and make sure it comes with a no-cd fix.
2, Download magic iso while you wait and make sure you get a crack for that too.
3, in magic iso, go to TOOLS>VIRTUALCD/DVD-ROM> and install magic disk.
4, a little icon appears in the bottom right corner of screen in the tray thing.
5, once you have downloaded the main disks, to to magic iso and go to TOOLS>CONVERT and select disk one. Follow the on screen instructions and make sure it converts to a iso file. If i was you i’d save all the conversions in a file called sims 2 main iso’s. Convert all four disks to iso files using this method.
6,Once all have been converted, should take 2 mins, close magic iso and open the file that you saved the conversions in, this is to make sure you know where they are.
7, right click the magicdisk icon and go up to SET NUMBER OF DRIVES. select one. The reason for this is so it is like using disks with a real cd drive.
8, right click the magicdisk icon again and go up to VIRTAUL CD/DVD-ROM and you should see j: appear. Click mount and select the sims 2 main disk 1 and mount that to there. now you should have disk one mounted to j: drive.
9, open my computer and double click j: drive. Enter the key i listed above in. It will start to install.
10. soon it will ask you to insert disk 2, when this message appears, right click magicdisk and mount disk 2 to j: drive, now go back to the installation and click ok, it will contiue installing.
11, you mount each disk when it asks you to the same drive, this is like using real cd’s.
12, once installation is complete, double click on the sims 2 icon on the desktop, it should say insert disk 1. mount disk one to j: drive as shown above.
13, click on the sims 2 icon on your desktop again and it will start to load.
14, a message will pop up saying please insert the correct cd rom. if it does, it has worked.
15, now do all the steps above for bon voyage. there is only one cd so this is easier. follow the instructions it gives you and enter the key listed above.
15, i think it asks you to insert disk four of the sims 2, do so by mounting it to j: drive. once you have installed bonoyage, mount it to j:drive. Now go to your desk top and click the bonoyage icon, now you can play. For installing other expansion packs/stuff packs, i immagine you use the same methods but i think there may be and order to install them, if there is, dont ask me! i dont know it. i hope this really helped you guys!
i did everthing you said and ive installed all my sims2 games but when i click on the icons on my desktop i always get that “please insert the corect cd-rom” message. ive tried mounting the right game on the J: drive, but it doesn work? i need help! its taken me forever to get this far! :@
I have the same problem plssss...help !!! :-S
hey, i use daemon tools and have done this many times but with a specific game of mine the 2nd cd does not have autoplay capabilities so i am unable to continue my install. this is really annoying because cd 2 has only got the install info and not the other neccesary bits. BTW for anyone that does not know how to mount, use daemon tools, down the very bottom right of your screen, after installing daemon tools should be daemons picture (a lightning bolt in a circle) click on this, above it should be some options, click mount drive, find your ISO or whatever it is, click load, then a screen should pop up (kinda like a USB thing what would you like to do) click autoplay, follow the prompts, when it asks for the second disk do the same thing but click on disk 2. it should continue, continue this step if their is more than one cd... this should help :)
