    Hi All,

    I have a problem.
    I have a GBA-SP [​IMG], and I want to play Pokemon Sapphire.
    I can play that game, and save it too.

    But now comes the problem:

    If I turn the GBA-SP on after a couple of hours and start Pokemon Sapphire, my save game is vanished...
    Then I can only select "New Game" and "Options", but no save to see...

    Has somebody the same problem, or maybe the solution for this problem.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Rik

    PS. My cartridge is black, and with a sticker on top, saying "MM Don't open"
    Maybe is the problem in my cartridge?? [​IMG]

    Your cartridge is black? It sounds like it might be a pirate cart. Sapphire should be see-through blue colour. In that case the save battery probably died or is dying.

    I've heard that you can replace the battery on those kinds of games, but I'm not sure how effective that would be on a pirate cart.

    How can I replace the battery? Or should I buy another (not priated) copy?

    I prefer buying original copy.
    But you can replace battery opening the cartridge, (somehow) taking battery away, and changing it to new. You should try google how to change battery [​IMG]

    Buy a new one because It seems as though you have been conned into purchasing a pirate cart.
