i think u should run scan disk. in xp u can go to my computer, right click on partition with bad sectors, go to props>tools. check run scandisk on boot. that should help i think

go to the seagate site and download their software for formating the hard drive. it will delete all the files on your hard drive so backup first. But be warned that it will take away all or most of the bad sectors and they may return again without warning. If you do not have very many then follow mafiafromrussia's advice and run chkdsk that is built in winxp. it will mark the sectors so they will not be used again in this format.

Just run chkdsk /r on the drive(s) in question - in fact, you might as well run it on all drives.
