1. you move your downloads folder out of the sims 2 folder (maybe put it
on the desktop so its easy to find)
2. you start bodyshop (this will create a new download folder in your
sims 2 folder)
3. you move you custom content out of your old download folder into your
new one.

I know it seems a bit weird, I also read that with changing the name of
your downloads folder, like replacing the 'd' of downloads by 'D' could
work.
Some also moved their customed clothes and genetics into saved sims. But
I think the best solution is still the one that worked for me. Try it!

Hope it works.

    I have to say I've had no trouble at all - so I think this must either be a
    hack you have that conflicts or a bug and/or incompatibility on some
    people's systems.

    It could be either, but I tried disabling my custom content and it didn't
    change a thing. I am going to try this "fix" if I can ever get a chance.

    It didn't affect me, my game reads them ok, I read here that someone
    was having trouble with the game reading the sub folders in the
    downloads folder, I suppose it's worth a try.
