Plastic traps moisture. That's a horrible idea. Don't do that.

But I did a test I put a hygrometer inside the closed bag and the humidity is low then the humidity comes out of the bag

If the humidity inside the bag is better than outside, you have some really terrible conditions there in Brazil.

I placed the hygrometer inside the bag and the humidity inside the bag is the same outside the bag, if inside the bag the hygrometer shows 50%, outside the bag is also 50%, if the outside of the bag shows 60%, inside the bag shows 60%, I put the bag in a ventilated environment with low humidity, humidity only gets high on rainy days regardless of inside or outside the bag, there are bags that let the air in, the air is renewed, with this test is correct ?

Then it sounds as if that bag is useless, if outside RH% matches inside.

The bag is useful because it protects the disks from dust and insects

Ah. Yes, it can do that. However, it's still not what I would do. But I guess you must make the best of your conditions. Brazil has some pretty rough non-controlled climates for optical media.

Can I store the discs inside these plastic bags without problems? My test I put the hygrometer inside the bag and closed the bag in the bathroom (local humidity) I placed the bag in a ventilated environment and the humidity dropped, I see that the humidity inside the bag is similar to moisture out of the bag

What kind of bag retains moisture?

Temperature changes will cause any plastic bag to have moisture bead up inside. This also assume the item inside has moisture to excrete. If 100% dry, no moisture can build up.

I'd rather store in a cardboard box. Cardboard will absorb the moisture, not trap it.

1 Can not I store the discs inside the bag? I will have problems?

this test higrometer is not reliable?

2 If inside the bag has moisture because of rain, on dry days will have a change of moisture by dry air inside the bag? This bag is not vacuumed I tied the bag

-- merged --

1 If I store the disks in that bag tie close the bag and put the bag in a ventilated and dry place the moisture humidity inside the bag will get stuck or will it leave having an air exchange?

2 Even if there is some moisture inside the bag, if the outside environment is dry the dry air enters the bag and the humid air leaves the bag?

3 How to store: DVD or MDisc DVDR disc inside dvd case black Amaray> dvd case Amaray black inside a plastic bag tied closed the same as the photo bag > plastic bag inside a closed cardboard box> cardboard box in an open environment And ventilated room (not air conditioned)

4 Is there any test I can do with a closed bag to find out if there is condensed moisture inside the bag or if the dry air enters the bag releasing moist air?

I would just purchase an aluminum hard DVD case and leave a hygrometer inside to check the humidity levels now and then. If the humidity is too high you can lower it with silica gel packets. And if you have an insect problem using cardboard boxes might invite unwelcome guests.

Great idea. Why didn't I think of that?

I can't answer this. I've put a bag over my head.

1 the dvdr / mdisc dvdr are inside a black dvd case and the case is inside a closed plastic bag just like the photo and the bag is inside a cardboard box If I need to remove the bags it is necessary to do several scan read Test, jitter, PIE, PIF because the humidity increased their level to the point of causing a great degradation?

2 I did what I thought of placing the discs, case and bag inside a cardboard box in an open and ventilated place thinking that the moisture would go down inside the bag

I am testing a hygrometer inside the closed bag, I closed the bag in a humid place and placed it in a ventilated and open place, I see the humidity inside the bag go down although a little slow, if it rains the humidity inside the bag go up, if it does not rain the Humidity inside the bag will fall, here where I live northeastern Brazil for most of the year the climate is dry without rain, if I keep the cases of dvd with the cd / dvd / mdisc inside that bag closed the discs will die fast and Will not have the estimated useful life of the manufacturer or have no problem would be the same as storing without a bag?

If you are using a bag like the one at the beginning of this post, I don't see how the bag can have an air-tight seal. The humidity will go up and down with the climate, as you found. Nevertheless, if you store it in an opaque bag it might still reduce the amount of light reaching the discs. Getting an aluminum/metal case would be better.
