dd question

  I'm new to linux and I have a 80Gig WD drive that's going bad. I purchased 
another 80Gig WD drive and I'm using dd to try to transfer the information to 
the new drive. I used:
  dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb conv=noerror
  It's been running for about 24 hours and now I am getting:
  dd: reading '/dev/hda': Input/output error
  94665360+0 records in
  94665360+0 records out
  will this eventually continue or will it continue to loop on this error.?
