Sounds as if you have failing sectors on your HD at the locations SCANDISK has suggested (eg 1%).
Scandisk and NDD will always halt at these for hours if not days.

Do yourself a HUGE favour and download this shareware AND RUN IT FROM TIME TO TIME.

HDD Regenerator by Dmitriy Primochenko

HDD Regenerator regenerates bad and failing sectors by magnetic reversal. If your hard drive is
damaged by bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk to
lose information stored on the disk. HDD Regenerator will regenerate your hard disk
(almost 60 % of damaged hard disks are subject to regeneration). As a result, not
readable damaged information will be restored. With all this going on the existing
information will not be affected!

Have you tried running scandisk in MS-DOS mode?
