    if it says it fails to save, it means it couldn't write to the config file.
    You need to check why it can't write to it : SD card is protected?

    Maybe it didn't detect the USB at the first initialization of the loader, so the setting paths are all set to "usb8:/"
    verify the path in the settings>user paths>
    if you see any "usb8:/" it means it couldn't init the USB correctly at launch and couldn't decide where to create the config file, or maybe you switched the drive while inside the loader?

    Do not remove/reinsert/switch the USB while inside the loader too ! it will cause issues and can be a hard drive corruption cause.

    It doesn't say "device not inserted" when you go to the user path menu, does it?

    when you load the User path menu, you have a list of path on the screen
    what are the paths device?
    usually it's sd:/ or usb1:/

    Or maybe the SD card need to works for the loader to work correctly.
