I recently bought a used Breath of Fire II game and i doesnt have any saved games on it, but when i play it and save my game it gives me the proper save prompt and it shows that it stored the saved game but when you turn the power off to the console for a long period of time or remove the game from the system and try to play it again later, it erases your saved game so i have to start all over again. Any suggestion?

Re: Saving Issues on a Used Game Purchase
The internal battery in your game cartridge is probably long since given up the ghost. Due to this, your saved games are lost because there is no trickle of power for the memory. You can replace this battery, though, so not to worry. Open the cartridge and you'll find a small battery similar to one found in a watch. You can find a replacement at Radio Shack or similar places. You will need a soldering iron and few hand tools to accomplish this task.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Far as I know coming from former GameBoys even to the DS. The game itself is not saved upon the actual Game itself, but the System or in the case the Gameboy. If he had played the game before most likely it is a previous saved gamed he palyed or someone else. All pokemon games have a common point, that you can only play one game at a time, if you try to start a new game, the previous saved game is deleted after saving on a new game. Granted that I have not played the newer verisons of the Pokemon, but if they are anything like the older verions. Emerald, Ruby, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Etc. They will delete the game once a new game is started and saved.
you cannot save another file until you delete previous one.Corruption occurs if the memory card is removed from console or if you reset the game while saving or loading game remember this also happens when you are saving or loading game and electricity turns off.
I'm using the slim... maybe it is the type of memory card but guitar hero is the only game I've had a problem with. I just restarted the game and then beat it over again. After it said that there wasn't any data and I chose to make a new one, it said that there was data but it was corrupt. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I haven't had any trouble since I started over the other one.
The problem is the games. The memory inside them is volatile, meaning that it requires a small electric current to keep the information saved. The battery only lasts for a few years, and then the games are unable to save data. The battery can be changed but is usually soldered to the board.
Why is this filed under Sony Playstation??
It looks like a Super Nintendo problem to me..
