Hi all,

Got a problem which I hope someone can help me out with: Bought Pokemon
sapphire and played it for a bout 3 hours with no problems, was able to save
and all was well. Picked it up, played it again for another hour, tried to
save and it froze, turned it off, turned it back on and it loaded my
previous save saying my previous game was corrupt. However, now it always
freezes whenever I try to save it. Have deleted my old save and tried to
start a new one, same problem. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

CK

Is it an original or on a flash cartridge?
If it's an original: Did you buy the cartridge on EBay?

I got it from a seller on Amazon, so its kind of similar I suppose, no box
or manual, had great feedback. Cartridge is blue, made in Japan, which I
assume all pokemon sapphire cartridges are. The seller is called
gamesaficionado

Buying GBA games from 3rd parties (ie, eBay or Amazon Sellers) is always a
very iffy purchase... as if you got what appeared to be a GREAT price for
cart-only... it's most likely a shoddy and buggy counterfeit cartridge. To
avoid bootlegs, buy direct from 2nd parties (ToysRus, Gamestop, Amazon.com,
EBGames) or screen 3rd parties VERY carefully.

yeah, just never had a problem before, even my slightly dodgy copy of
Tactics Ogre works fine. I take it I should give up the cartridge as dead?
Will Ninetendo fix it? Have read a lot about dodgy Pokemon Sapphire
cartridges...
