Default Sims 2 No-CD Patch Doesn't Work?

I'm currently having problems with my Sims 2 (Special Edition) when used with my laptop when I'm traveling, because its DVD drive is sensitive, so it jumps and skips, or maybe because my Sims 2 DVD has scratches, but still it works on my desktop.

So, I downloaded the No-CD patch for the Sims 2 DVD from GameBurnWorld.com, read that sticky thread about it (thinking I get it), and swapped the original Sims2.exe file to a new one with the No-CD program. Nothing Happened... It just gives the message box when you don't have the disc in at all. Are there steps that I missed? Also, what's the NFO file for? I can't seem to open it, is that important? Should I paste that in the game's main bin too? I really need to get my Sims 2 working without that somewhat bothersome DVD always in my laptop's drive. (It also drains power faster...) If you guys know the simple way to do the No-CD patch for those people with the legal version of the game, please help.

Thanks!

The nfo file it's explaining how to put the crack in a step by step process. Right click on it, open with and select the Notepad. Make sure you have select the little square , so in the future, all the nfo files will be assosciatted with the notepad.
If you've updated the game, the no-dvd won't work, as it was specifically designed for v1.0 of the game. For an updated game, you will need to use the mini-image, which is on the same page mounted in Daemon-Tools (available at www.daemon-tools.cc ). The Lite version is Free, the Pro version is paid.
