    This is a game-specific error, what game are you trying to run? (sorry my psychic powers are out to lunch today [​IMG] )
    Some games require patches to get them to save correctly on emulators (for example, FFTA and pretty much any Pokemon title)

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    it would be a dirty rom issue. either poorly patched source or you have the save settings to something lower than needed or not on automatic


    if it is the second one you can fix it by putting a check next to:
    Options->Emulator->Save Type->Automatic

    also put a check next to Real Time Clock since your also playing pokemon.
    Options->Emulator->Real Time Clock

    Try increasing the save size from Flash 64K to Flash 128K

    If you got checks already there, it is a dirty rom issue which means you need a better source.
