Transferring playlist from WM11 to Clip

Could really use some help since nothing I’ve tried today has worked!  I can’t figure out how to create a playlist from songs in WM11 and create a playlist…Most of the songs to be included in the new playlist are already on the Clip under the overall Music folder.  Every time I try to sync the playlist in WM11, it creates a separate folder for each song and takes up more space on the Clip.  How can I just create a simple playlist?  What mode should I be in?
