An RDF is a HDF with an RDB. You cannot have real bad blocks in any type of image format. These images only store user data, 512 bytes per block. There is no way to make such a block bad (unreadable). A real harddrive stores error detection data on the magnetic disk so that it can determine whether the user data is still intact or not. The data in an image file is always intact, there is no way to store a bad block in an image file.
