There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Does the new client not recognize wallets from clients circa January 2013?

I just did the same exercise and all went off OK.

What OS are you running? Give a bit more detail and I can try to help.  

e.g. is this a new computer?  Can you toss this wallet.dat somewhere else (or where it came from) and try that?  Tell me all about your situation.

Do you even mine?
