    Harvest Moon Sunshine Islands works perfect on DSTT v1.17a07 HOWEVER whenever I try to save, the game freezes at "Saving.." waited 15mins too still stuck and the weird part is, if I reset the game, I can load it to the point where I froze and then resume playing..but this is annoying, I don't want to keep switching the DS off and back on (every time I save) to be able to resume my play session..anyone facing this problem?? (Also tried with v1.17ao2, same problem) Any advice will be really appreciated.

    I'm using v1.17a07 (on R4 via YSMenu) and it's saving fine for me. Try 'acquiring' your ROM from a different source. Oh, and make sure you use the Panasonic formatter to format your SD card or it doesn't count.

    I'm having the same problem. Are there any specific options one should be using with that formatter?

    What brand is your SD card? Try using a different one and see if that works. On a Kingston, my game always froze on Rune Factory 2 when I went upstairs in the mayor's house, but I was able to go up there once I switched to a SanDisk.

    I switched from a 1GB Kingston to a 2GB Kingston, and it seems to have solved the problem. I've saved several times since switching, and it hasn't froze at all.

    I had a 1GB Memory Card of Nokia, just bought a 4GB Kingston today (2GB out of stock, but 4GB was really cheap) and the game saves perfect!! Atlast I can finally enjoy playing this game without having to do what I used to - keep playing and before closing the game, save it - that was a fine way but sometimes saving is REALLY required.
