Guitar Hero World Tour -- Not Saving Career Data

Okay, we've tried several times and lost several hours of playing. We're playing "Guitar Hero World Tour" on PS3. We do the Career thing and play a bunch of songs. We go back to the menu and exit/shutdown. We come back the next day -- and all our song playing is lost! Grr.

According to Red Octane the only way for the game to save your progress through a gig is to either complete it entirely, or for you to pause the game and exit out of the gig otherwise your progress is deleted.

What do you mean by "gig" -- I hear different definitions. We see the gigs are sets of 3 to 5 songs, not the entire career. We've played maybe 4 or 5 of those (12 to 20 songs). When we come back, it's all gone. We'll try pausing and exiting.

The "gig" is the entire song list - look on it as a concert from the musicians' perspective or a game level for the gamers. Until it's completed you don't progress in your career. Gigs consist of a series of "sets" of 4 or 5 songs, there is a total about 80 songs in the game to complete your careers.
If you get to complete the encore song after the boss song you have finished the gig successfully.  That's about song 6 in each stage.

Having just read that back it looks about a clear as mud! Sorry! The short answer is about 6 songs but it will depend on where you play!

Yeah, we've played MANY encores and completed those gigs. We'll have to try again with exiting properly. It's very frustrating.

The problem was two-fold, but stemming from one problem. We weren't saving manually because we thought auto-save was on -- it wasn't. The auto-save had an X in it that looked like it was enabled, but clicking it put a checkmark there. Bad user-interface design in that case. So, we just finished the band career. Yahoo!

Thanks and Grats on your new careers!
You're absolutely right.  I've switched auto-save off and although I know there should be a tick there the cross looks just like a checkmark to say "Yes auto-save is on"!
 
I've contacted Red Octane - let's see if anything happens ....;)
