Hello Chloe,
   Folders failing to convert to ATCT during migration, have 
historically been caused by a missing 'portal_type'. If your site was in 
the past a 2.0.RCx version of Plone for example, bugs in those early 
releases could leave portal_type missing.
   If you go to the ZMI, to portal_atct, then to type_migration and 
scroll down there is a button marked "Fix missing portal type". Try in 
your 2.0.5 site clicking this button before you start migration. Then do 
all the other steps as you did before. I cannot promise but this might 
fix it.
   Even if you think its unlikely you're missing portal_type, it would 
help to try this and at least eliminate the possibility.
