Comment on what I said.
You CAN fix your problem.
"Tried what you indicated."
What was the result ?
Fixing the mbr won't make a partition on the 320gb drive larger.
You can use free software (drive preparation programs) available on the web site of either drive brand to copy the entire contents of the 80gb drive to the 320gb drive, and you can have it make larger partitions on the larger drive while you're doing that.
E.g.Seagate has Maxblast and another one that can be used if you have a Seagate or Maxtor hard drive; Western Digital has one.
The Seagate ones must be installed on the original drive, or you can install them on any computer and then make a Dos bootable CD of the Dos version that can do the same things.
The Seagate Maxblast and the one Western Digital has are slightly crippled versions of Acronis software - you can copy an entire drive's contents but not the contents of an individual partition. You are not asked if you want to copy the mbr of the original drive.
