I just got MY clip last day, and it took me so many hours to figure out how to deal with play list.
I read a lot discussion in the forum. and I got the idea.
1st, http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=announcements&thread.id=115 this does not work for me.
If you want to follow my way then listen to me, and don’t use others’ method to doubt me.
2nd- Misunderstanding area — You have to create playlist on you computer before you actually transfer any music files into you Sansa Clip, don’t try to make a playlist after you have transfered the music files to Sansa Clip
3rd- disconnect your clip with computer, and set it to MTP mode for later use, ( use MSC mode will not work)
4th- Following the video to make your personal playlist (no doubt, it works for my Chinese character as well)
5th- While Connecting your Sansa Clip with you computer if your screen display windows can Sync music to you Sansa Clip automatically, reject it (because windows will simply transferr all the music file found in your computer to your Sansa Clip.)
6th- Now you should have a correct playlist as you want in your Clip
