Did you remember to make an alpha layer? Most common reason transparencies don't work. Alpha layer is the additional layer below the RGB layers that basically does a black/white opposite of what you want to be seen on the RGB layers.

TGA files should only have one layer, but four channels. The channels are red,blue,green and alpha. Someone can correct me, but the black level of the alpha channel, determines how transparent your TGA file is. I believe pure white is completely opaque, and pure black is completely transparent.

Yeah channels, that's what I meant. I always confuse the terminology between layers and channels.
