Help with getting info from external SD copy to new internal hard drive.

After problems with getting SD to copy to iPod Classic I bought an external HD. Everything copied fine. Swapped out the hard drive and then started it up... It seemed to read the new hard drive. I copied the external hard drive over and not all the files went over, Library and Systems both gave errors that I did not have permission. Then when I disconnected the external HD the screen went grey with a weird panic debugger drive and it kept telling me to turn off the computer.

I ran a hardware test, ran disk utility and the new hard drive seems fine. I ended up reinstalling OSX from the original disks.

I used migration assistant to take my settings and files from the external to the internal but the only options are:

1) use a firewire to combine two macs (the external HD only has a usb)
2) combine from another volume or something. This option makes me add a new user and puts my settings on the new user ID.

I ended up erasing the new user when I couldn't figure out how to merge them. The new user also had a problem with FireFox.

I feel so close to being done with this hard drive swap. Help!
