    Help/Information needed please (^‿^)/ *ѕmɪle & wave*
    Hello fellow Simmers! I should probably know the answer to this question, but I do not, so please forgive my ignorance (*^‿^*) *blush* I have not Simmed in a year as I found myself without a pc. I only had a cheap, basic one that would not run Sims, after my gaming notebook was taken and I could not afford to replace it. I now am looking to purchase a new laptop (a laptop is prefered as I spend time in hospital where I like to Sim to occupy my thoughts while I am unwell) but to my dismay all pre-made/store purchased laptops no longer have an optical drive. I own all Ts3 games on disc (except Ambitions) and some of Ts4 and I have registered them with Origin. In the past I have always purchased and installed using the discs and when I click on the icon it always says it cannot play until a disc is inserted. My question is.. Without a disc drive, if I downloaded all my games via Origin instead of using the discs to install them, will I be able to play if no disc is inserted?
    Thank you in advance for any help (/^‿^)/ *нυgѕ & вleѕѕιngѕ*

    I would recommend you contact EA support. If you have the discs and they are registered, they may be able to provide them as downloadable versions for you.

    It's a place to start anyway.
