PLEASE HELP - I can't bake a cloth simulation and I don't know what else to do

I’m trying to simulate a scarf but I can’t, the baking bar appears but just for like half a second and it’s not doing anything AT ALL. If I start an animation it does work, but I can’t apply the cloth modifier or anything, i can’t change anything and it’s driving me crazy because I’ve been doing this simulation for three days. Heeeeelp, I don’t know what to do

Also, I’m new to blender.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you! I didn’t know

BTW, for something like this, you usually get the best help if you can provide a .blend file that other people can look at and help you troubleshoot. You should be able to attach it to your post.
