Installation Problems

Installation Problems

I recently purchased the expansion pack, H&M Fashion Stuff. When installing the game, the installation manual reccomends you save the game in a seperate folder than that of the original Sims 2 game. After doing all of this it the installation manual says to insert the original Sims 2 disc to enable run the game with the added features of the expansion pack. So when I do this, the game begins to run, and it goes as far as the Sims2 logo on a white background after the AutoPlay message. Then I get an error message displaying something along the lines of "You have inserted the wrong disc, please insert The Sims 2: H&M Fashion Stuff disc". So I do as the error message says and insert the Sins 2: H&M Fashion Stuff disc. It begins to run, my mouse pointer changes to a disc and I then get another error message displaying "please insert" and it leaves blank what I have to insert! This is so confusing :S and frustrating!!

Please help if you can!!! It would be much appreciated!!

This happened to me too. I had uni and nightlife, but then I installed h and m and you can't play half of it if you don't have open for business. So I installed open for business, but then it kept saying I was inserting the wrong disc and I had to insert sims h and m. So I did, and thenit said I had inserted the wrong disc again. I agree. Very frustrating. So I had to uninstall h&m, and install open for business instead. Now I havnt instaled h&M incase I decide to get another expansion pack. Does this happen with all stuff packs?

Actually nothing happened to me I don't really pay attention to the instalation instructions much. But you should try having all the expansion packs before h&m.
And no it doesn't happen to all stuff packs.
