A lot of people have trouble getting the saves for this game to work.
Are you playing the US, European, or Big Fish version of the game? I sent you a save for the US version. Saves are not cross-compatible.
Did you scroll right back to the beginning of your saves in the in-game load screen? They are in date order, so mine would be at the beginning.
Double check that you renumbered sequentially and didn't omit/add a zero while renumbering, and that the extensions remain as they were.
