I bought a new Dell XPS 210 about 6 weeks ago and after a month the HD was\nfound to be defective. I got the new one and got help installing it. Before\nthe new hard drive I could play Sims 2 and all the expansion just fine. Now,\nwhen I go to install, each expansion starts to install, asks for the second\ndisk if there is one, and then when it asks for disk 1 to be put back in to\nfinish up, it can't read that the disk in in the drive. It does this with\neach and every expansion. I've been installing the patches from the Sims 2\nwebsite and I set each one up to run in XP SP2 and as administrator....but no\nluck. I've been on the phone many times with Dell and corresponding with EA\nGames as well...they can't seem to help me. I reinstalled Vista again, last\nnight and am still having this issue. I've even tried putting a copy on my\ncomputer and installing that way...but it still can't find the disk 1 at the\nend of the installation. :(\n\nIf anyone has any suggestions, I would really be grateful. Thank you!
