I purchased some bitcoins and have tracked them using block explorer, where they appear to at the address I gave for my wallet. However it is nearly 7 hours and nothing has been lodged yet.
In the bottom right hand corner of the wallet window there is an icon of two computer screens with a red circle with a white cross through it.
I was able to send o.oo5 bitcoins to instawallet with no problem. How do i resolve this?

I would appreciate any help at all!

I have tried to remove the blk10000dat file and the blkindexfile, and noticed that these icons had the vlc cone on them. What is going on? I'm using a mac by the way.

Apparently you have no 'nodes' (peers, other Bitcoin users) connected to your computer to download the block chain and transaction history. Try restarting Bitcoin, see if that helps.

Oh and VLC just attributes .dat to itself because .dat is sometimes a music/video file (in this case it is not.)

I have tried that already, closing down the computer, and restarting-no joy at all. I think i am going to have to remove the old wallet and reinstall. Do you know if I can manually input the original address into the new wallet?

Only if you know the private key - which I don't think bitcoin-qt (the client application) tells you. It's most likely not the wallet's fault: be sure to back up the wallet. If you delete/lose the wallet file, any money sent to the addresses in the wallet will be lost. There are programs that can recover the private key from your wallet, but it's pretty complicated.
