Check the owership of the files/directories in question. If your user does not have read permissions on a file, Amarok will not play it. I know because I was recently playing with permissions on my music, and ended up dropping all of my music from Amarok when my user lost read permissions.

I must have read permisson because amarok can play the file! the problem is that he wouldn't build my music colection only when I start amarok as root
