New computer, now no Calibre format

All of my books in my Calibre library now show 'None' as the format. They were transferred from my old computer using an 'Easy Transfer' program. Is there an easier way of updating the information than just copying all the old files onto a flash drive and copying them to the Calibre folder?

Thanks!

No, the new one is Windows 7. The old one is Windows XT. The books in the library are in their proper formats (.ePUB, .lrf, .pdf, etc.) I added them using the Calibre add process, and copied the metadata file over to the new system. All that information shows up, just not the format.
