I had to reformat my hard drive, so first I backed up all of my oblivion data and saves. I reinstall, replace the new program files folder with the old one I backed up, and put my save in the proper place. However, when I try to load, I receive one of those "Would you like to send an error report?" erros, and the game crashes to my desktop. Is there any way to use my save, or do I have to just start over?

if i'm right, it saves the things into "My Games" in your "My Documents". is it there were you stored them? have you tried running the game WITHOUT having those saved files there and not crash?
i've done it several times, and have had zero problems when placing the files there.... did you change your user name on this new install?

Does that mean that you backed up the Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion folder then you just replaced it ? If that's the case then you should delete it and install off the disc the crashing might be because you just replaced the folder.

I replaced the folder, so I got all the old mods and stuff, to remove incompatibility, since it didn't work on a fresh install either. I have it in the right folder too. My saved games show up, but I just can't play them, Oblivion crashes.

And yes, it works with a new game.

Have you tryed - playing a new game - saving the new game and then loading your old saves? worked for me with Rome TW - maybe try a new install of Oblivion?

Well I tried some older saves, and they worked fine. Lost some progress, but at least it works. I didn't lose all that much either, so I guess it's all good.
