As you can see, that file isn't marked as read-only, so it looks like the game should be able to write to that correctly.

Next test- can the game write to a brand- new Sims 2 folder?

Try what I suggested in post #25- drag Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2 to the desktop and run the game so that a new Sims 2 folder is created. Enter one of the EA neighbourhoods (or create a new one, if you are using empty templates). Take a screenshot. Can you make a neighbourhood story? Can you make a sim and enter a lot and make a story for that family?

Ok I will try that. It will be later on.

Also, the photo organizer program can't read those pictures either... But just in my main folder.

Question: if my camera and video don't work in ANY folder, why would it in a new one? Do you think it's mod conflict?

If it were a mod conflict, pulling your downloads folder would reveal it. No, testing with brand-new data is how you eliminate the possibility that your entire Sims2 folder is corrupted in some way.

Ok. I loaded up a brand new folder.

This is what I got.

Now even in my main folder where the malfunctions are happening, I still have the original Maxis hood pictures. I don't even have those here.

Guys...what's wrong with my computer?

Okay, let's do a test. Can you attach the N002_Neighborhood.png and the N002_Neighborhood.reia files from the newly generated Strangetown to a post? They should be in Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighborhoods\N002.

That way, one of us can generate a fresh Strangetown and put your image files in there, to see if they are working right for us.

The storytelling files are in the Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Storytelling folder, but you'd have to zip the whole thing up for us to test that.

I put it ALL in there, except lots and characters since I didn't touch anything. I did attach Bluewater to it, so I hope that doesn't mess with you...So I left out the suburb files.
