Fix Amnesia Rebirth Save Not Working – Game Doesn’t Save
Amnesia Rebirth’s save not working can be caused by a range of issue, but it can predominantly attributed to the permissions provided to the game on the antivirus or Windows Defender software and admin permission.
Without the admin permission, the Amnesia Rebirth executable may not have write permission at the install directory, which can cause the game’s save not to work. To provide admin access, go to the install directory and right-click on the game executable > Properties > Compatibility tab > check Run this program as an administrator.
You also need to whitelist Amnesia Rebirth on your respective software.

Fix Amnesia Rebirth Sound Device Not Found
Some players are encountering the Amnesia Rebirth sound device not found error. We often update our video driver software, but rarely the audio drivers. So, ensure that you have the latest version of the audio driver software. Although, that may not be the cause of the error.
A third-party application interfering with the game is a possible cause of the sound not working with the game. Disable any application that uses the audio or sound devices on the system such as music applications. If that fails, try launching the game from the AmnesiaRebirth.exe at the install directory.
Another cause of the error that’s highlighted by the developers is the game patch having Cyrillic letters. If the patch has Russian letters, change it to fix the issue.
That’s all we have in this guide, we hope you have resolved the Amnesia Rebirth save not working and sound device not found.
