Hi,
Ther could be two reasons, for the same.
1. The hardrive is not working correctly as the mesasge tells you
2. The 320 gb harddrive may not be supported by the sony motherboard.
Would suggest you to call sony support to verify if the system supports 320 gb hdd , cause i was not able to find the same information on there website.

Thanks
Proton

Formatting HD i dont need


Sounds like a wise decision, Even testing a disk often involves writing to the currently "empty" space and as your files are in a region that is currently "empty" it could overwrite them.

My favorite facility is actually in Canada, Called Armor-IT Data Recovery(they're in our FixYa Directory for all the US states), I can get you contact info if you want to try them, as for India try http://www.diskdoctorsindia.com/ You can launch a case and get a quote right from their webpage. They are located in Bangalore.

Any other questions or info, add a comment and I'll do my best to help out.

Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost. I downloaded something called "Magic Boot Disk" It gave me the whole 320 back yet have not found good cloning software yet. Magic Boot Disc is freeware avaliable at http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/ Good luck cloning

Western digital read only


You need to get an NTFS file driver such as FUSE. NTFS can be read by OS X but in order to have read and write access to drives other than FAT32, you need a 3rd party file system driver. I have used FUSE quite a bit and it works really well. It is also free.

Cheers.

To format the drive to allow files larger then 4GB: Open up My Computer, Right click on the Western Digital Drive. Select Format from the list. Under file System, select NTFS. Under format options Check Quick Format. Click Start to format.

Warning! Formatting will delete all data and files on the drive. Make sure to transfer all your files to another drive before preforming a format!
