    When you start the game it only gives the option of New Game. I had to leave my DS on for 3 days so I could get to the end.

    Would appreciate any advice

My game does not stay saved when I shut down my DS

Naturally, this should not happen

If you're positive that you're saving the game correctly (saving through the Save option in the trunk and letting it finish saving), then there's a problem with your copy of the game

If you obtained a "second hand" copy through some place like eBay, then you likely have a pirated copy of the game (which are known to have a number of problems such as this one)

If you purchased it from a store, then take it back for a replacement (which is the only "fix" for this problem)

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.

I bought Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box and cannot save

If you are certain that the game will not save (using the Save option in the trunk), then you need to return it to the store for a replacement

You are correct in saying that this should not be occuring and there is no fix for this besides obtaining a replacement copy of the game

Hi,Can you tell em how to reset the game so as to

Simply select New Game from the menu and overwrite the existing save file (this is the recommended method)

The game does not offer an option to delete save files (although it is possible using the arguably risky method of purposely corrupting the file by, say, turning off the DS as it saves)

A new file - professor layton

The game should, of course, overwrite existing saves without problem

While the game does have a few set save points, the best way to save (which can be done at any time) is to use the Save option in the trunk (some players forget about this)

If you save into a save slot doing this and it's not there when you next restart the game, then something is wrong

If you purchased the game "second hand" on eBay, then you may have ended up with a pirated copy (these have caused various problems for players including stopping during the game)

The game doesn't have an option to delete the save files

If you are confident that saving just isn't working and you're unable to return the game for replacement or refund, one drastic course of action may be to corrupt the save (by quickly turning off the DS while it saves), thus causing the game to say the save is corrupted and make a new save file ... naturally, this should only be done as a last resort

My DS wont save the games on Professor Layton

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.
