Just takes time. I have quite a few wordpress blogs that I assigned 2nd hand domains to. Some of them switched over within a couple weeks. Some took 9 months. They aren't too important to me, so i've never tried getting new links or asking google to add the sites or anything like that. I've just let them naturally switch over. They all seem to do it eventually.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I am not a web developer, so I had no idea about the ODP listing. I did however take that advise and did some searching. I did track the title back to ODP and put in a change request form. – Hopefully they will accept. (They should, I described why I require the changes e.g. I am the new site owner).
In the interim, I added the <meta name="robots" content="noodp" /> to the header .php page. That should work as an interim solution.
Thanks again for all your help. Now its just a waiting game to see what happens.
