Hi Stuart T,
If your new harddisk has the same name as the old one (let´s say 
¨photo¨, one is mounted as ¨photo¨ and the other as ¨photo_¨, you can 
see that in /media if that is your mountpoint. So maybe digikam did the 
right thing, it depends on which one is mounted first. If only the new 
drive has been mounted, digikam starts saying that it found the 
collection but that the disk id has changed, and it can and will read 
your new drive.
