Default airport detectors + image loss

I have heard that airport screening devices can wipe out digital images stored in cameras/image saving devices. Is this true? What has been other people's experience?

i work at EWR (Newark Intl Airport). i have brought my equipment through many times. no problem yet, so far. flying is not a problem.

the only problem for moving CF type flash mem or Microdrives is possibly in the mail. if your unlucky enough to get your package degermed by one of USPSs electron beam washing machines there is a chance it will be rendered useless for good. fedex is your best option for sending them around.

My D7i and all CF cards have been through those machines several times without any damage. Contents in CF cards are also unaffected.Same experience with my old CP950 earlier .

sjms,

I received CF cards by snail mail and they were OK, I guess I was lucky.
