Red flashes after game play recording footage.

Hello I hope this is the right thread To post this,As it does involve software.

Okay so the problem I'm having is any time I record a game off of my internal hdd

after I'm done recording and I play the file. I see every thing came out great except that in some frame's I'll get this random red flash it happens quick and then goes away.

But it keep's happening durring the rest of the recorded game play footage I'll get a random red flash here and there. Here's a screen shot. Btw I'm using dxtory to record my gameplay footage
With the Lagarith codec. Settings.
and the drive I'm recording to is a barracudda 7200 1tb 32mb.

I hope some one can help. Side not this drive was repaired from bad sectors if that helps.

Really no one has had this problem? I think It's the drive..
Every time I record to it,it get's those random red flashes.I will be replacing it.

Also I will be checking on another hard drive to see if it happens on that one as well.

Will report back my findings.

After purchasing new drives and running test on the old
one on various games the old one came out with lots of those red flashes

on all recorded game play this old drive had bad sectors,and was repaired.
Yet it continue to get those red flashes.My guess is the drive is still bad.
Ran test on a new drive recorded footage came out excellent.
If you ever had this problem it's most likely your hard drive,Time to replace.
