The reason that happens is because the game requires a battery to write the saves to the chip.
Once that battery is dead, you cannot save any more games on that cartridge.

I am suprised that the old games are still there at all!

But you can repair it.

Here is how:

Yes Try Reseting The Power Button Over And Over While The Unit Is Running Then Check. This Should Delete The Files. Also If You Have The Newer Version Of The Snes Pull The Game Out While The System Is Running And Put It Back In.

Well its because theese game packs have a battery inside of them that aloows to to save the game data when the battery dies you loose all of the saved data and can't save any more either which sucks so you will just have to buy a new one then.

My Nintendo DS keeps pausing while I'm trying to play Super Mario


The problem may be something in the ds cartridge slot. Try removing the game, blowing into the slot, then re-inserting the game. If that does not work, you may need to buy a new copy of the game. If you don't want to lose your progress you can buy a GBA/DS Action Replay and use it to backup your save data. that is a Gameboy Advance action replay with a nintendo ds slot. you can find it at www.codejunkies.com or you can look around for it at local stores or on ebay.

Nba hangtime for n64 wont save my created player.


You might need a memory card. Some games need one for N64 and some don't. It may also save on the game and sometimes it just glitches out because it's old. I know that my super nintendo used to delete files without doing anything because the game was damn old.

Saveing


you can not save a game half way through, you must collect enough coins to then enter a power up/life mushroom, spend your coins (x3) when you come out of the mushroom it will allow you to save game, in other words collect 3 gold coins spend them in a mushroom= save game

Some games dowsn't work


The saves are missing because the cartridges internal battery has died. The Ram that's in it to hold saved games cannot hold anything without some power.

Some cartridges won't read if the contacts have some dirt on it or something... The blowing thing is not a good thing to do and eventually hurts the cartridge more then it helps. Rubbing alcohol and q-tips cleans the contacts the best in my opinion. You can use the rubbing alcohol and q-tips to clean the contacts inside the system also.

Hope you can get these old classics working like they should be!
Good luck.

Super NES is Driving Me Nuts!


Turning your console on and off *can* erase save game data. This is in the users manual. Intermittent operation on older electronics indicates an internal connection problem somewhere. See if Nintendo can direct you to a fix-it shop, as they no longer service SNES consoles. Failing that, ask local video game stores and rental stores where a good fix-it shop might be.
