You think moisture or humidity has anything to do to make your DVDs become "rotted"?

    As the topic, do you think moisture or humidity has anything to do to make your DVDs become "rotted"? Or it may make some kinds of process that make your DVDs unplayable?

    Humidity was a factor in Laser rot, which affected LDs. I believe "DVD rot" is something else entirely, in many cases it's caused by a failure of the glue holding the layers together, or some sort of contamination or chemical reaction destroying the layers.

    Just my opinion, as I haven't had a disc "rot" yet...

    I've yet to encounter so-called "DVD rot." My personal feeling is that DVDs becoming problematic is likely due to conditions in which they are stored.
