The Sims with Expansion Packs - No-CD

I bought the Sims and all these expansion packs, but I have trouble running the game. What happens is, I install the Sims Deluxe Edition, then apply the NoCD and it works fine. However when I add expansion packs, i run the Sims and it comes up with the message "The sims needs to update your game as we have seen u added expansion packs" or something to that effect. Should I try installing the game and then the expansion packs and then applying the NoCD patch?

Also, I bought a new computer recently and want to install the sims and the expansion packs without having to insert all the CD's (its a pain inserting serials for like 5 expansion packs). Would copying the Maxis folder onto a DVD and then pasting this folder on the new computer work?

Cheers for any answers

You use the no cd AFTER you have installed The Sims and the addons, in the order they were released.
You then use the crack for the LAST addon installed.
The addons will not install correctly if you attempt to install on a cracked version.

WILL NOT WORK !!!
You have to use the "real" install of each expansion pack. And also each time entering the serial-key !!!

The cd volume labels indicate the expansion number.

BTW i uninstalled everything (tHE SIMS, expansion packs etc), and now the game wont start at all. I load it up (without the No-CD patch) and it loads to a certain extent, but once it gets to "Adjusting Emotional Weights" on the loading menu, it just freezes and then crashes.

How do i fix this?

You have to reinstall the game after uninstalling it, before starting the game !!!

BTW, i don't know why it's not working anymore.

LOL, well if I tested it obviously I reinstalled it. Should have been uninstalled and reinstalled...

When dealing with a game like this and all these expansions, I guess i should do some research before I install it... it still freezes on adjusting emotional btw

Sims 2 doesn't have pets right? But it is does have the good things from some of the expansions. (I never liked pets anyway)
I'm guessing they're either gonna make the same kinda move with milking the franchise for all its worth OR they actually asked people what they liked about the expansions and included that stuff only.

Try a registry cleanup and then erasing all the file AFTER you uninstall the expansions.
Reinstall in the order GLH gave you and everything should be ok.
Was it ok before when you first started it without any crack?

No, it was alright the first time i played it with the crack.

Then i added expansions and found you couldnt add them once you added the crack.

So the next time i installed the whole tihng from scratch, it wouldnt start up and got the "adjusting emotional weights" problem.

So i uninstalled and reinstalled the Basic game ONLY twice and it still wont get past adjusting emotional weights. This is just the basic game BTw, and i have erased using the Sims Eraser and everything and it wont start.

I also just last night installed it on a mate's computer, and got up to the second last expansion pack, The Sims UNleashed, and then it came up with the problem "Insert the correct CD" and i went through every f8*king CD in the Sims collection and it wouldn't even install the update of the Unleashed. It was working on my mates computer right before I installed Unleashed, and once that happened, I thought F**K this game. It's easier to just download the 8-in-1 Expansion Pack on BItTorrent then go through inserting the f**king CD's. It took me two hours to installl and then Unleashed f**ks up on me. So im gonna download the 8-in-1. Its not illegal since I own the game, right?

From what I understand the 8-in-1 is missing a lot of files.
Trouble with warez is not uncommon.
