Answers :

The FAT (File Allocation Table) is corrupted..
Find a freeware program to restore a corrupted FAT.
there are 2 FATs on your HD. A Backup if one gets corrupted.
If it can be restored you can retrieve all your original data. If not then you will have to go to the Sony Website and purchase a set of recovery disks for you particular model. Cost $25-$30
The disks will restore your computer to the original configuration.
All data ie. music, programs, photo's etc will be lost..

Download from the internet..
