That usually means the Save Path setting is pointing somewhere where you can't create new files.

The Save Path setting is on the Paths tab of the ScummVM Options dialog. You should set it to a directory (also known as a folder in some operating systems) where you want ScummVM to store saved games.

Just set it to somewhere where SVM can create a new save file.

That means where there is *enough space left* (like a few hundred KB each),
which *isn't write-protected* (not the CD-ROM or a write-protected USB-stick),
and you (as the user) are *allowed to write to* (i.e. least-privileged users must not write to C:\Windows or C:\Program Files under Windows XP and non-roots must not write to /etc, /bin, etc. under GNU/Linux)
