No only be replaced by good sectors that manufacturers put on one side when disc is made. Believe it or not new dives have bad sectors when made. Cheap drives will have more develop than dearer ones as they set the bad sector tolerance level lower when they check the new disc for faults i.e. they pass clusters that are not bad but near the boarder line, so that they may go bad in the short term quicker than a good drive that allows grater clearance
