Re: SNES Breath of Fire 1 AND 2
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..

YOU CAN NOT PUT NINTENDO 64 GAMES INTO SNES or NES SLOTS. The retro duo is snes (super nintendo entertainment system) and nes (nintendo entertainment system) only there is not spot for the nintendo 64.
Do you have your TV set to the "TV" input? There may be inputs such as "Video 1", "Video 2", "HDMI 1", "HDMI 2", "Component 1", "Component 2", etc., but the input you will want to have selected is "TV" (this is usually done by hitting a button labelled "Input" or "Video" on the TV remote). Once you are on that input, go to channel 3 (type in "03" on the remote), then turn on the SNES. It should now display.
If this doesn't work, double check the plug you have connected to on the back of the TV, it should read something like "Cable In" (not "Cable Out").
If you have checked all of that and everything is setup correctly, it is possible that you have a bad RF adapter (the grey box that connects the SNES to the TV). If this is the case you can buy one online for around $5 - $10; just google "RF adapter SNES".
It is the SNES it has the same issues that the NES had simply turn off the machine remove and put back the cartridge and turn on. some times you will have to press the restart button a half a dozen times.
Make sure everything's connected in the correct sockets. Turn the SNES on, change to one of the Analogue channels (one of the channels which you control with the TV remote) and start scanning for a signal. The RF cable has to be connected to the analogue port (where a TV aerial would plug in to get analogue channels) and the SNES needs to be switched on.
The alternative is to get a SCART-compatible cable that works with a Gamecube or an N64 and use it with the SNES, as Nintendo had the foresight to add an EXT port which'll let you play the SNES on an AV channel.
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.
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.
