Sorry to hear that digikam isn't working too well for you.

First thing I would recommend is to backup your existing albums as is to DVD or 
some other high density storage.

There is a re-read meta data from images option, which can be used to get your 
database back into sync, available under the Albums menu.

I would also recommend you check your Collections Settings, under the configure
