I am excited to hear whether this works as well.

Great news! I can confirm that this method worked for me!

Tested in two games, SNES and PSX (both games had troubled me in the past) and saved just fine.

Wonderfull!

I´m glad to hear that this method worked. Maybe the admin can pin this information on the board so other users don´t miss it.

Hi,

I had the same problem and read in a retropie post that there is a problem with acces restrictions to the file system.

There was a option in the menue where you could reset the possession of the file directories.

Wait a min. I will have a look at the option.

Edit:

The post was:

try Reset ownership/permissions of /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ via
(I believe) retropie-setup > configuration/tools

Source: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/118 ... -working/8

For me this worked and I was able to save again in my games on my retrostone.

Otherwise double save via save state with select + R

So, what do I do exactly (normal person here). Do I quit to desktop and then what?
