    I play this game on my Gameboy Advance SP (it won't fit into a DS Lite for some reason...) and when I turned it on after a really long time of not playing it, it showed me a New Game and Options options. It did not have the option to Continue to the file that I worked really *******.... I was upset, and didn't know why this happened, so I decided to start a new file. My friend and I saved after we started the file (before we got a pokemon) and when we turned it on again later, the Continue Options was once again not available. Later, I tried again to start a new file, and this time, I was able to save it (I saved twice before turning it off), turn it off, turn it on, and get the Continue Option about 4 or 5 times in a row. I thought it was something weird that fixed itself, but the next weekend when I went to show my friend, the Continue Option was once again no longer there. I'm not sure if it was the Gameboy Advance Sp, the game itself, the file, or maybe the file is still there but the Continue Option isn't working for some reason. The game is maybe 3 to 4 years old. Can someone tell me what's wrong with it and if I can fix it at all?

    i bout it from ebay and it came in and when i tried it it didn't save

    I have basically the same problem as spiritkitten, except with a GBC. I decided to start playing again after years of not playing, and the Continue button wasn't there. I was like, well, maybe something happened, so I started a new game. The new game said that it saved, but when I turned it on the next day, the Continue option was gone. I also found that the same thing happened with my brother's Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver. Other games work fine, though, like Pokemon Yellow.

    I tried blowing into the game cartridge/GBC cartridge, and that didn't work. I probably should like an idiot, but if there's a corrupted data file, then there's nothing that can be done to fix it, right? (I hope I'm wrong...)

    Grr, this is annoying... -_-

If EvoLuTi0n is wrong, it may be a dead battery inside the game.... to replace, just unscrew (may take some needle nose pliers) and i can't remember the voltage, but just go to radioshack and ask if tey can replace it...

Hey Mukim,
Try taking out the Cartridge (The Game) and blowing hard into the bottom part thats open where you click it in. And then blow hard into the GameBoy Colors Cartridge behind the screen (Where you insert the Game). That should do the Trick. If that fails, then you have a corrupted data file. Corruption in files is very common with old video games, and it can be caused by almost anything.

If this helps, please rate this solution as a FixYa. - Evolution

Hi, I have pokemon gold on my gameboy and when I last saved and now I want to start again and I can not say more than that the save file is corrupted. How can I fix this problem? Thanks in advance


Sorry, there isn't a way to bring back a corrupted Gameboy game save. The reason the save has corrupted is because the small battery in the game had died. Replacing the battery might fix your game, but it won't bring back your save.

I am using an emulator on my computer to play this game and I cannot save! How do you save?


If you are using an emulator to play the game, the only way you can save is through the emulator. The game itself is just an image that can only be played upon loading. That said, there are many emulators that give you the ability to save your game, depending on which one you are using. If you are using a free version of an emulator, a lot of times you will have to buy a code and upgrade your access to the emulator in order to save. There are other ones that allow you to save though. The next time you load your game, look at what options you have in your toolbar (i.e. go to "File" and press "Save").

My game will save, but when I turn it back on, there is only the "new game" and "options" displayed...I can't continue from where I saved.

Replacing the battery might fix your game, but it won't bring back your save. Well you could use a memory stick for the game boy color and advance and orginal gameboy then instead.

Many problems with Link's awakening DX.


Hate to tell you this but...I've had games do the same odd things to me.
My second oldest son informed me that the games apparently have batteries in them. If the games aren't played often enough they will drain and the games will become messed up...however,I have yet to confirm this on any site.
My oldest son says that if you have ever had the game hooked up to a gameshark that things like this will occur.
I'll keep looking for a solution for you.

Pokemon Silver


Sounds like your game's internal battery is dead, not too hard to fix. Just search Google for replacing Pokemon silver battery and you should find heaps of info about it. If you do I would recommend using a new battery and not one from another game (I used one from another game and it died in about 3 weeks).
Unfortunately you will have to start your game again :(.
Hope this helps.
