Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E/S Notebook PC
The error 320 and 330 while performing the System Recovery using the Recovery Discs indicates the issue with the Recovery Discs or the Optical Drive. However, the Computer comes with the Recovery Partition present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. As the System Recovery process is not working using the Recovery Discs, you can use the Recovery Partition for the System Recovery.
To access the Recovery Partition, please restart the Computer and press the F10 Key. This will take you to the Edit Boot Options screen. At the Edti Boot Options screen, press the Enter Key. This will launch the VAIO Recovery Center. In the VAIO Recovery Center, you can select the "Restore C: Drive" to restore the Computer to the factory settings. (Selecting the Restore C: Drive option will erase all the User data in the Computer and restore it back to the factory settings.)
The Restore Complete System option can only be performed using the Recovery Discs. After performing the System Recovery using the Recovery Partition, you can create new Recovery Discs.
Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

First you should stop using the device where your lost video located. And ask the help of some thir-party software. Here I recommend you to have a try on Data Recovery, which enables you to recover lost video with ease. If you are using Windows, photo recovery can also fit your requirement.

I was getting the same error codes and the system would not reload from any recovery disks. I discovered a RAM chip was faulty and when I removed the faulty chip I was able to reload the OS onto the system without a problem.
