Why does our Nintendo DS keep deleting our saved progress in Super Mario World?

We recently bought a used copy of "Super Mario World," which is a Game Boy Advance game that we play on a Nintendo DS Lite. We've gotten through the first couple map screens and have, as expected, been prompted a few times to choose "continue" or "continue and save." We generally select "continue and save." (If we've ever selected just plain "continue," it was by accident since it's the first option.) When we quit and start the game again, sometimes the first of three games will have our saved progress, but sometimes they'll all be "new" games.
We clearly did it the right way at some point or else we never would have been able to start over with our progress saved. We can't think of anything we've done differently to lead to these different results.
This is frustrating since we won't make much progress in the game if it keeps up like this. We played "New Super Mario Bros." a lot and never had this problem. I've Googled around but haven't found any reference to this issue.
Has anyone else experienced this with "Super Mario World" or other GBA games played on a DS? Any ideas how to fix it?
