I bought Mass Effect trilogy, 2nd and 3rd part worked smoothly, but i have problem with ME1. I can save the game without error, but there is problem with loading. I can see some saves from origin, but nothing happen, when i try to load it. On starting screen is missing option like resume/load, there is only option "start new career". I am really desperate. Some solution?
Are you on a PC?
If so, is there a "Save" folder under "Documents\Bioware\Mass Effect"?
If so are save-games in it?
If not search your computer for files with the "*.MassEffectSave" extension.
Also try to run the "MassEffect.exe" under ">drive<:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\Binaries" as Administrator and try to save and load again.
Yes, i am on pc. I forgot to mention, that i've already tried to reinstall game. Folder save in that location is missing, so i've manually created new one. I've also run game as administrator, but nothing worked. I found same problem on steam forum, but in the end there wasn't solution.
Did you changed your standard Windows "Documents" folder?
Did you searched for "*.MassEffectSave" files?
So, i found folder ME in "Windows\Documents", there is also folder "Save", but it's empty. There were also folders ME2 and ME3 which contain save files. I suppose the problem is that ME1 can't create save file, i couldn't find any in my pc. When i try to load game while i am playing i can see another careers, but file to load are missing.

OK, Try to repair the game. (in Origin > Game Library > right click ME > Repair) > Test.
If that don't helps, set the "MassEffect.exe" to run as an administrator and start Origin as Administrator as well. > test.
If that also don't helps, create a DxDiag in text file format and post it with your next reply. You can do that with the "choose file" button at the bottom right corner of the reply window.
