It is hard to speek for dk 1.2. as I am using 2.1.1 but either loosing 
the database or loosing the config file would most likely bring up 
messages at startup process.
So, if dk started normal but there are no photos I suppose you lost the 
disc where the photoĊ› reside, as suggested by jdd or maybe that drive 
has for some reason not been mounted or has been unmounted.
If you find your photos and your databases with nautilus or dolphin your 
database might have become corrupted.
Have a nice day.
