The Spindle packaging used in DVD packs and the black DVD case box are the hermetic packages and can store moisture inside and the humidity will not come off if you do not open spindle and dvd case black and the humidity will damage the storage of the dvd discs? Spindle and dvd case store moisture equals plastic bag?

Not really. Once opened they are no longer hermetic sealed if they ever were. However their exchange with the outside air environment is slow, how slow depends on the specific cases/spindles involved. Just don't open them when the air has unusually high humidity.

Bottom line protect your media from high temperatures, direct sun, high humidity, rapid changes in temperature and humidity, and physical damage from handling (e.g., finger prints and scratches). Have backups, and test the media periodically so you can make new copies before the old become unreadable and when media readers/standards change (hopefully to something better).

What is you DVD/CD/BD storage goal in terms of type of content, quantity, and time?

A suggestion: consider your life expectancy, and whether or not anyone will care about the media once you are too old to enjoy it.

The humidity here is now 64% can not open or close in this humidity because the humidity will get stuck inside the spindle and inside the case of dvd?

I have DVD media MDisc Verbatim and I save game files and emulators

If I understand your concern about high humidity correctly, why not just put a small desiccant pack in your storage container?

Don't feed his mania. He's been asking the same question for 5+ years here and at videohelp.com (where he's been banned under several different names) and will never accept any answer, just keep asking questions: http://www.digitalfaq.com/forum/sear...searchid=79945

Sounds like perhaps unauthorized copies of game media. If so, by the time the DVDs or CD rot the computers that can play the games will likely be long gone or not work.

If most of the year my MDisc DVD / DVD optical discs are stored in variations 30-35.7 ° C 45-66% RH the cause of their durability being 13 years is because at some point in the day the temperature reached 35 ° C and the humidity arrived in 66% if the stop humidity in 50% and temperature in 30 ēC the useful life of the disks would be greater?

friend Lordsurf I know that in my storage conditions I can not always keep stable temperature and humidity and currently I store the dvd / mdisc dvd inside black case of dvd and these cases I store inside enclosed cardboard box, you have any more storage tips for me to improve and lower the temperature and humidity in the disks, vacuum or other solution?

Mr Gmaniac,
with all sincerity I suggest you focus more on enjoying your gaming and living life rather than pursue eternal life via plastic disc, a losing battle between time and your yet-to-be-born future generations who may not care. It's a little like going on a fantastic exotic vacation and photographing or video recording every frickin' second through a lens rather than breathing the air of the moment. Or maybe you are just nuts. I will no longer post anything on your topics, but I wish you well.

The only other storage tip is to move to another country/location where weather is more hospital to optical media. Then again, with climate change, good luck with that. You can only do what you can do.

Perhaps pray to the DVD gods to take mercy on your collection?

Seriously, nothing more can be done.
Light and humidity are the main problems, and you've addressed those.
Time is the other factor, and unless you have a DeLorean parked outside, you can do nothing about it either.

Move on to another hobby. Perhaps woodworking?

The light I solved keeping the discs in black dvd cases but the mdisc dvd is not affected by light because its dye is inorganic, the humidity I do not know how to avoid because I store in black dvd cases and cases inside boxes Closed cardboard but on rainy days it is damp anywhere

At the risk of keeping the obsession going...Get yourself something like this and stop the endless questions about humidity.

Why do you say that I have solved light and humidity problems on DVDs?

Rent a large safe deposit box in a bank. Your disks will always be in the dark and humidity will be controlled inside the bank vault. Case closed.
