"Save Profile" Keeps Looping; Cannot Save/Create Profile

"Save Profile" Keeps Looping; Cannot Save/Create Profile
I'm new to PPSSPP so there may be something I'm missing; but I've got a strange issue.

Platform: Windows 8.1 x64
Version: v0.9.8-1628-gc338332 (07-07-14)

I've tested 3 games so far:
- Burnout Legends
- Burnout Dominator
- FIFA14

Absolutely everything works flawless! Graphics, audio, gaming; everything! Except one issue ...

I cannot seem to Save a profile or a Game Save. It's almost like a "Read-Only" or Permissions kind of an issue. I go to "Create Profile", enter all the details, select the slot, but after that it keeps coming back to:

"Do you wish to save your profile"

I would hit "yes", and once again the screen comes to:

"Do you wish to save your profile"

... and this just keeps looping.

The exact same thing happens if I try to Load an existing profile; or Load an existing Game Save.

To me, technically, it feels like it's SEEING the profile or the game save; but it cannot READ it.

I copied my existing Game Saves for Burnout Legends from my android phone (on which I used & played the game using ppsspp) to my Windows PC. It sees the game saves, but when I try to load it, I keep looping like the above.

Problem with Burnout Dominator is, I haven't played that game so I'm trying to create my profile; but I can't because of the above looping issue. I can't play without creating the profile.

I'm stumped.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys.

Are you perhaps hitting the cancel button by accident? Some games (usually Japanese) use circle as their confirm button, instead of X/cross. Or perhaps somewhere along the lines, your confirm button preference (Settings -> System -> Confirmation Button) got swapped.

I double-checked; that's not the case. The "X" is what Burnout uses as enter/confirm. I have it mapped to Ctrl on my Keyboard. Along with all of my other mapping, it works just the way it's supposed to.

There is some issue with the Game Save & Profile not being able to be WRITTEN & READ with my PPSSPP. It can see them, but it just won't write or load them; or in the case of Profile; it won't create one.

Alright, I just wanted to rule out that possibility, since it seems to be the number one problem lately, relating to save looping..

Can you open the debug console (Debug -> Log Console) and see if there are any errors (messages in red) when it tries to save or load files?
