If its not under warranty and you still want to use it, format the drive using NTFS. Use a QUICK FORMAT. NTFS has a property of isolating bad sectors so that it wont cause a problem like you had.
It is possible to fotmat it from Windows XP CD on booting from it, if you have only one drive. Also, you cando it from other computer or your own if you have 2 HDDs. Remember to backup all your required data before this.

You must have gotten the serial number wrong. "Invalid warranty", which is what the Seagate warranty checker gives you, does not mean out of warranty, it just means it was unable to recognize any drive with that model and that serial number. You either got the wrong model and the right serial number (unlikely as the model number you wrote is a real one) or you got the right model and the wrong serial number.
