I hope this is in the right section, but I have a question regarding the possibility of damage to a disc if stored in a bad place...

I am rapidly running out of room on my shelves as my collection grows. The only shelf I haven't been using has an electrical outlet (socket) in the wall behind it.

I don't use this outlet, so is it safe to cover it with DVDs?

Thanks for any help.

I would tend to say that you have no problem to store your DVDs there. It is not like tapes where any type of electromgnetic could just erase it.

There should be no issues with storing DVDs in front of an unused electrical outlet. Since there's no exposed metal on a DVD to provide any kind of electrical connection, you wouldn't even need to cover the outlet. Even if DVDs were magnetic (like tapes), I don't believe that an electrical outlet has a strong enough electromagnetic field to cause any problems.

Bottom line: you're safe.
