Old Save Files compatible for Steam version?
I recently purchased GTA SA Steam version (v3.00 as appeared in home) and my old save files do not work. They appear in "Load Game" menu but when I click them starts a new game. Is there any method to make them usable?

You need to downgrade to an earlier version. I'm having the same problem and found this

You need to use an up-to-date downgrader since San Andreas was recently updated.

V3 - downgrades to the previous Steam version before the recent 2 patches (includes the cut songs).
V1 - further downgrades to a full original retail copy and allows for you to use any mod(s).

Links to both downgraders can be found in the link below: http://steamcommunity.com/app/12120/discussions/0/34096318964479523/
