    1. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.

    2. Turn the system on by pressing up on the POWER switch.

    3. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

    4. When the main menu appears, tap the stylus on the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom middle part of the screen.

    5. Tap the Options icon.

    6. Tap the Start-up Mode icon.

    7. Tap the top box for "M Manual Mode" and tap the "Confirm" rectangle.

    8. Wait for the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Go Back," then "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

I have started a new game on pokemon crystal several times, saved the game and then turned off my gameboy. Then when i turn it back on there is no option for continue, only new game. How do i fix this?

there is a small battery inside the carriage, replacing this will give the game the ability to keep saved data once again. *Note* I do not suggest doing this unless your experienced doing such thing. you can damage the board of the game if on careful.

After I saved my file on pokemon yellow version special pikachu edition I turned it off. When I turned the game on all it said was new game and options instead of continue

Alright, save games on most Game Boy games are stored on the game itself. To keep these games saved, each game has a small battery continually providing power to a small memory unit actually installed on the game. What has probably happened is that the battery inside the game has run out of power, and so it won't hold any saves anymore. The good news is that these batteries are easilly replaceable, and there's quite a number of online walkthroughs to show you how to do it. If you run into trouble finding one, let me know and i'll hunt one or two down for you :)

The title screen should give you the option to start a "new game". Scroll down the menu once, below "continue".

Saving the game data on Professor Layton and the Curious Village

The game should, of course, overwrite existing saves without problem (even if second hand)

You are not prompted to save when you quit (since there really isn't a quit or even a return to menu)

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

It should also be noted that some (if not many) of the "second hand" copies purchased on eBay are actually pirated copies that have caused problems for players (including stopping with blacked out screens during the game)

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

Cannot save game in super mario 64 for ds

maybe you're not going to the start and turning it off. when you save everything else and quit turn it off right on the menu or further back. I think this will not answer the question so if no work sorry.
