How do I make rsync ignore unreadable files (damaged sectors)?

Yeah, I got an Input/Output error when running strace. I don't have the
luxury to smash my harddrive so testing with a CD is my only choice (afaik)
right now. Still, I do think that rsync should give up after a long time,
but it doesn't. So, any advice?
