Restoring database from files

Ok, I committed the cardnal sin of computing, I upgraded MySQL without properly backing up my information. The new version couldn't find any of my old databases so I couldn't make a proper sql dump.

I do however have all the folders with the original files/information associated with them. I tried just putting the database folder into the upgraded version of MySQL's data folder, but that didn't work. (I use phpMyAdmin for controling MySQL) I can see that there is a database by the name that I'm looking for, but when I try to view it, I get this error message:

#12 - Can't read dir of './projectmcompanydb/' (Errcode: 13)

Can anyone help me figure out a way to restore this database? I'm using MySQL vMySQL 4.1.8 standard on OSX 10.3.9.
