diskfdiskhard drivepartitioningram

I have one external hard drive which i plug to my linux machine.
It causes read and write operation problems.

  1. When i check it with fdisk -l it wait for information to display for while.
    After few minute it got display.
  2. i had use badblocks command for checking bad sector on disk.
    After around 1:30 min it gives total 1040+ bad sector location.

So is there any way to skip this location and use remaining memory ??? Or fixing this problem. whether i need to change it.
