Moving Sims 2 mods from old PC to new PC

It's a long story, but basically I'd been stuck with an old Pentium 4 on Windows XP for the past 3 years or so, and all I had to do on there besides web browsing was The Sims 2. Now I've got a brand new i7-8700 with Windows 10. After following online guides to fix my graphics settings, I managed to finally get the game to launch, though it takes several minutes to actually launch. It runs fine otherwise. But...

I had saved my old Sims 2 downloads folder with my mods in it. I tried simply moving them into the new (Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads) folder, but the game didn't seem to recognize any of them. No custom content dialog or icons in the game. What could I be doing wrong? Do I have to download them again?

    After trying everything... I finally stumbled upon the solution. Even though "enable custom content" was enabled in the options menu, I clicked on the asterisk-looking icon and there was yet another enable custom content dialog. It's all good now.

    Glad you figured it out! I know in the near future I will have to get a new computer as my current simming PC is about 12 years old. All I have on that computer is sims stuff to try to expand its life. haha.
