It sounds as if you are copying data to the Library at root level rather than the Library in your Home Folder. This latter is hidden by default in Mountain Lion to prevent inexperienced users from messing with it. You can access this Library by holding the option (alt) key down while clicking on the Finder's 'Go' menu when the user Library will appear as a menu choice.
It is to this Library that you need to copy your calendars for iCal to see them, and where your Notational Velocity files should be.

Hi Roger - thanks a lot for the advice, I managed to copy it into the Library at the root level. However, the calendars still aren't showing up in my iCal -- is there an extra step that I have to take to have it read the library data?

Not that Library. It has to be the Library inside your Home Folder - which is hidden by default. Please see my earlier post.

Yes, sorry, I mistyped, I meant to say the Library in the Home Folder, but the events still aren't visible. Why would this be?

I'm afraid I don't know anything about Notational Velocity - presumably the files were readable before in the other iCal? If they won't work here I can't say why - you might to best to ask the makers of the program.

A quick look at their web site shows I've misinterpreted what you said - Notational Velocity isn't related to iCal. However if you are still having a problem with that the makers would be the people to ask.
I'm not sure why you can't get iCal files to work if they are in the correct place. In 10.6.8 the Calendar folder includes a folder for each calendar, and these contain the .ics files which represent the actual events. I don't know whether 10.8 has altered the format as I don't use it.
You originally said ' I found the old calendar data in Users/my name/Library/Calendars, and copied it over into the Library file on my new machine.' - did you copy the entire Calendars folder intact?
