    Game saves, but game save is gone after turning off the ds

    Same here. Game saved but then a while later there is no option to continue a previously saved game, only to start a new one.

    Same, same. Bought from E-bay came with advice (as they have had probs before obviously) =

    Continue with game as you enter village top screen reeds sold 2 - Entrance - Head for Reinhold Manor. DO NOT TAP SHOE YET. Tap Isabella (lady on left) and do puzzle 3 (hats) then talk to Stachen(man on left) who teaches about hint coins (there are two more on screen). Then tap shoe and take arrove further into village. Luke (boy) asks about record keeping. Prof tells about saving and the trunk etc. When screen asks save tap okay; tap file you want to save in and you have a save file with your name, which when you restart game on screen you will have choice of New Game or Continue. tap continue and you find you saved file.

    This hasn't worked for me. but good luck!

    happens to me too and i just got up to 26 games solved. Turned it off and back on to see if it saved and nope. Just says new game. I bought a dsi today and it doesn't even work at all in it. It's my favorite game and i cant even play it. I bought it brand new sealed in package from ebay.

    I have the same problem, it only gives the new game option every time! I also bought off ebay, could this be the same seller?

Is this the actual real game or a rom download, if its just the real game i would take it back to where you got it from and demand for a replacement as it is faulty, if there is anything else you need let me know and good luck.

I can't save any progress on the Professor Layton nintendo ds lit

After clicking "save" make sure you wait until it's done saving. You should click save then wait a minimum 15 seconds. Put the DS down and check your fridge for some leftover noodles, come back and turn it off. You should never click "save" then turn off your DS moments later.

If it isn't that, then make sure you aren't accidentally shutting off during parts of the game where it autosaves.

Also, keep the game stored in a non-humid area that is fairly warm. It could be being read wrong.
