I have a directory with files where MySQL database was stored when there was used Wamp. Now I would like to use this data to read it using Xampp. I tried to set datadir in 'my.ini' file to that directory - in Wamp it was /wamp/bin/mysql/mysql5.5.24/data When I open phpMyAdmin I can see my database and table names on the left but when I click on any table name i am getting an error "#1146 - Table 'mydbname.any_table_name' doesn't exist"

How can I recover my database now?
