You'll need to buy a CD, or burn one from a backup. Not sure if you can just mount an image of a backup, like you can in OS X..
If this is an illegally downloaded copy, we can't help you. It's against the board rules..

i used to play the sims on my old pc years back. great game - but the disk ended up wearing out and not working from scratches etc. i had tried using a burnt copy and got the same problem - the game requires an original disk to start (unless u can find a crack somewhere...)
