    I have the same problem, when u load the game the only option is 'new game', its annoying because you cant save anything & if you turn of the ds you have 2 start the game at the beginning again.

    After getting to puzzle six I clicked on save so that I could resume the game at a later stage which was not possible as it kept opening up on New Game.Is this a fault or am I missing something.

Usa DS game won't save,WHY??

It shouldnt matter where it was bought,i've bought a few games when i was in Usa last year and they work on a console i bought here in Ireland.
Try this,this is what i came across before on Prof Layton,
When you go to save a game and the three spaces are used up,select one and overwrite it,you can only save 3 at a time
Hope this helps,

Bottom screen blacks out in Professor Layton and the C. Village

There is no fix for this type of problem on a DS

If you obtained a "second hand" copy of the game (particularly from some place like eBay), then you could well have a pirated copy of the game (which are known to have problems just like this one due to faulty game data)

These "black screens" are usually caused by corrupt cut scene data that causes the scene (such as the one that should appear where you get the vase) not to play

As the cut scene doesn't play and you can't skip the cut scene in the Curious Village, you're basically stuck

If you purchased the game from a store, take if back for a replacement (possibly after testing it on another DS just to make sure)

The game doesn't have an option to erase save files

The best method is to merely overwrite the save files

It is possible to "erase" a save file by corrupting it (such as turning off the DS as it saves), but this should, of course, only be done at your own risk

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
