To end all upcoming 'omg i cant save' threads. In order to save your game, you must change your save type manually at the game select screen. you must change the save type from AUTO to FLASH 4Mbit. you can do this by highlighting the game, holding select, then right or left on the dpad to choose the right save type. If you have chosen the right save type, then all should be fine. after you changed your save type, the next time you create a new character will take a couple minutes, so do not turn off your ds while it is doing so. Hope everything works out well for you guys, if you are unclear of anything, i will try my best to answer your questions or maybe someone with more experience will.
