Default Airport X-Ray Machines & Memory Cards?

Hi Everyone,

I am slightly concerned that on the way back from holiday there is a chance that when the memory card passes through the X-Ray it will be wiped, and in turn loose all the holiday pictures. Is this true, and if so, what can be done to stop it happening?



Best Regards,

Richard.

Default Completely untrue

Hiya,
naaaa no issues at all. Flash is very secure and would need extreme particle radiation to scramble it. IF you still aren't happy, keep the Flash with you and ask to have the security guard check it by hand.

So it'll be fine going through the X-Ray? Thanks, glad I know...

Personally, I'd be more worried about what the x-ray radiation might be doing to my body rather than my flash mem cards.
