Save state file not loading?

I just started using the emulator, playing Pokemon Platinum.  Used "save state as" to create a save file, now trying to "load state from" to load my file.  Not working.  No error, or anything, but nothing changes in the emulator.

Then you're using a buggy hack of desmume or the .dst file got corrupted. check your hard disk for errors.

I think that load/save states menu items must be hidden by default because they are mostly used by not-so-smart people to ruin their pokemon progress.

Not a buggy hack, it is the up-to-date official copy.  I'm almost certain the file didn't get corrupted, I tried to make a new save file using the same method later on, and it didn't load to that one either.

Then what would you recommend I use to store my progress?

What I've done to try and save so far, is use all the save methods that I have found.  I have a quick save, a "save state as" file, and I have an in-game save.  I'm loading the game right now, so we'll see what works.

Always use ingame saves, never use savestates.
