hows it going? a friend of mine as purchased the copy of sims 3 and he let me borrow it so that i could copy it. i burned the game into a ISO format and mounted the game to a virtual drive. when i boot sims 3 without a CD from the ISO file the game gives me a message stating: "this game is unable to verify that your disc is a valid copy of the Sims 3 please contact customer service" is this because the game detects a virtaul CD instead of the actual CD? i would like to know if there is a way around this i tried using google but no luck! help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance! P.S i would like to strongly apologize if this has anything to do with piracy and i would appreciate the mods close this thread if it has anything to do with it that is not my intentions to do so thank you!
