I'm hoping someone here can help me. I am running on windows XP, 2.66 GHZ computer with 512 RAM and all the other appropriate Sims2 needs. When I put the disc in the cd drive, it refuses to acknowledge it's there. Any other disc works fine, just not this one. So we figured bad disk - went and returned it and got a new one - it is doing the same thing. Anyone know whats going on? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I just bought the game myself, and had the exact same problem. I was perplexed, and so I checked the ea customer support site. Here's the answer, and it was really so simple and stupid I slapped my forehead. If you have the DVD version of the game, CD and CD-R drives will not be able to read the disk. A DVD-rom drive, however, will be able to read both the CD and DVD versions of the game.

If you have mistakenly purchased the DVD version and do not have a DVD-rom drive, you should exchange the game at the store of purchase for the CD-rom version.
