What happened is just what I feared would happen. When I go into the game the default Pleasantview is still there, with the stinking Caliente sisters, etc.. And I can't figure out why. When I go to Documents-->EA Games, my stuff is there! Neighborhoods, Downloads, Projects, movies, all there! When I went to put them in initially I deleted the EA games that was there and copied mine from the flash drive to the computer under Documents the way it was before. Everything is in place the way it was before, but it is not showing up in the game. I'm just wondering...before I had the Double Deluxe Combination, Fun with Pets Collection or Apartment Life installed I had to have Best of Business CD in the C drive per instructions from the game when I had another CD in there (I think I had in whatever EP I'd loaded last). Then I had to go in via the Mansion and Gardens shortcut. No problem. That's because M & G was the last EP issued by EA. At the time I had M&G installed from it's own CD. Now I'm using it from Fun with Pets collection and there is no M&G shortcut and the game informed me I had to use the FWPets CD. No problem again. But it's still showing the default Pleasantview. I can't think what else could be causing the problem. It's so frustrating. How can it be even bringing up the old Pleasantview when I deleted that EA Programs?How does the game actually work with the EA games under documents anyway? because it just doesn't seem to be grabbing my backed up games. If there is another copy of EA Programs anywhere in my PC could it be grabbing that? I used to save the backups to the desktop because a lot of people said that was a good idea, but once I started using flash drives, I preferred that. But I deleted all of them, I thought. I don't know what to do. I rebooted and it didn't help.
