You might try this... it worked for me.

Check if you have sqlitebrowser installed-
$which sqlitebrowser

If not, install it.

Kill all instances of amarok or amarokapp-
Sort processes by name, select and kill if necessary.

Make a copy of your Amarok database-
$cp $HOME/.kde/share/apps/amarok/collection.db $HOME/.kde/share/apps/amarok/collection.db.bak

Open the database with sqlitebrowser-
$sqlitebrowser $HOME/.kde/share/apps/amarok/collection.db

Click the 'Browse Data' tab, and select the 'Devices' table from the
table drop down dialog.

Select the last record by clicking the far left column, then press the
''Delete Record' button until the table is empty.

You may want to select 'Compact Database' from the File menu, but I
don't think this is strictly necessary.

Select 'Save Database' from the file menu, then select 'Close Database'.

Amarok now should start normally with all data intact.
