Dear readers,

First, I want to thank you for this website because it is user interactive.my problem is as follows: I have an external hard disk of size 80 GB of type toshiba. I am experiencing a bad sector situation on it and it seems bad becuase if any operation comes near it like scan, it starts making a lot of noise and stuck on it. I don't know what to do,but I am thinking to partition it 2 partitions without the badsectors.I think that I will remove it(am I right?).so, I want a program that locates where the bad sectors are so I don't use them in gparted.I tried to test it with the smartmontools test but every test gives me the following result: Short offline self test failed [unsupported scsi opcode].I need all the help that you can provide.

Thank you very much.
