    Assuming the permissions are correct, did you rebuild the database? I am not sure where amarok keeps its database, but maybe it is looking in an old one from the previous installation.

    I got similar problem with audio files that was copied over the net, and so I assume, you copied your music from the old HDD. Am i right?
    Have you checked permissions for folder/files with your music? Try to give write permission not only to the catalogue with files, but also to files inside.
