On Vista, there could be a few locations:

 

Public\Public Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\GTA San Andreas\Data

Public\Public Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

This is only if you're running the game in Windows 98/ME compatibility mode.

 

The default location should be:

C:\Users\your username\Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

First step - Use Windows Search and search for a file named gta_sa.set. Wherever this file is, that's where your saved files should be.

What's your Windows User account name? Does it have a period (.) in it?

Try reinstalling the game to My Documents and see if you can save then.

Did you delete that file? If not, then do it.

If you delete the set file, a new set file is created everytime you start the game.

 

Try reinstalling the game to the drive where Windows is installed (most probably C drive). Vista has a lot of heirarchy problems, so it can't be ascertained as to where exaclty the game would work.

 

Also, try running the game as Administrator. Right click on gta_sa.exe and select Run as.

 

If that doesn't help, create a new user account and reinstall the game to that account.
