No, you can't remove them.

Scandisk marks them as bad so they are not used.

If your HD has bad sectors then you should really buy a new one.

You will have to use some third party tool like Partition Magic or Seagate's Disk Manager/ DiscWizard Program Suite. Get it from [url=***********.seagate.com/products/discsales/discextras/A1i1.html]here.
