Zelda looping at title Error

Hey, trying to play both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask on the emulator
First time and I can’t seem to get past the part where it allows me to choose a save file to begin the game.
Any help? Bit of a noob to emulating systems
The following pops up right before I can choose a save file

[ 14.622126] Service.FS core/file_sys/savedata_archive.cpp:OpenFile:53: Non-existing file C:\Users\Louis Cout’\AppData\Roaming/Citra/sdmc/Nintendo 3DS/00000000000000000000000000000000/00000000000000000000000000000000/title/00040000/00033500/data/00000001/save00.bin can’t be open without mode create.

So what exactly happens?

Selecting one of the 3 in-game save files just sets me back to the previous menu. Previous menu being the which simply asks to press start to begin. Happens in both 3D Zelda games (will maybe test with another). I’m very confused because the whole thing seems to working fine besides that.

Can you confirm with your button mappings that, after pressing start, you’re pressing A?
