Migrating subversion repository

I just moved my work to a new laptop.  I set up subversion in the new computer and transferred the repository from the old to the new computer using svnadmin dump and load.  However, when I connected my sites in Dreamweaver (CS5.5) to the new repositories, it doesn't seem to recognize any of the old versions.  When I select "Version Control" on the menu, the option for "Show Revisions" is grayed out.  So in essence, all the files are treated as new files.  In other words, my migrating the repository didn't work as I can't compare my files to the old versions.


One possible reason is that my CF directory has changed.  In the old laptop, my files are stored in C:\websites\cf9\sitename, while in the new laptop, I use C:\websites\cf10\sitename.  I would think that this shouldn't matter because the file location should be relative to the svn server path, ie.  "myserver/svn/sitename"  and not to their physical location.


Anyway, any suggestion as to what I should do?


Thank you.
