After following Skinjobs' directions in this thread
I was finally able to make working playlists. I kept tripping myself by saving the playlists in the wrong place.

This assumes you are using MSC mode and added all your files under MSC mode. If not, you'll want to format the Clip, switch to MSC mode and reload all your files.
FYI, there is no Playlist folder in MSC mode (and it won't work if you create one). Make sure you save the playlist to the MUSIC folder.
I would also make the mistake of saving a list to another place then moving it to my player. If you save the list anywhere else but the folder that holds the music Winamp (ugh!) writes the leading slashes that breaks it.
