SIMS 2 not working because of copy protection?
I have just bought the Satellite M60 Notebook which should have everything requested to play The Sims 2. I installed the program but when I want to play, a window appears "This program has caused an error and is shutdown". I read on another page that this may be because the DVD-Drive has a copy protection and shuts off the game.
Is that the case? I have legally purchased and paid for the game and am really annoyed that it doesn't work. Is there a patch or something to avoid this? I have the newest direct x version.
It is the only game I play but what when my kids want to play a game and the DVD-drive shuts down my legal products? I am not at all satisfied with the drive anyway because it is loud, slow and does not recognize all of my CDs and data-DVDs.

You suggest that this drive doesn’t recognize the CDs and data-DVDs.
I wonder how did you install this game (program) on the notebook if the drive cannot recognize the medium?
However, I don’t think that the problem with your game occurs because of the drive copy protection. I have never heard about such protections on the Toshiba notebook drives.
In my opinion the error message “This program has caused an error and is shutdown" occurs because of the software issue. I think you should ask the game manufacturers for support. Maybe he knows more about the own product error messages.
