Was it working with older WHDLoad versions? I've completed the German AGA version 3-4 years ago with no issues.

omg, german ocs version saves on HD!
so this is not issue with new slave or new whdload
There is one difference: when you Use Postcard and Save, this german ocs version says nothing and simply displays "1." for first save position"
englisg aga version wants "Insert save disk and press any key".

Just tried KG's preinstalled AGA/English version. The saving works fine here, with WHDLoad 16.9, slave v1.3.

Download it again. My folder shows 12.03.2007. Maybe a KG fixed version. Are you missing the "saves" subfolder in "data"?
