Floppies and CDs in X-Ray machines at airports?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Pauline Johnson, Nov 3, 2003.

  1. Can any one tell me if it is safe to let computer floppy and CD disks
    go through the X-ray machines at airports?

    Are they likely to be damaged?

    Cheers .........

    There should be no ill effects with either.

    You should be more concerned about walking through
    a metal detector whilst carrying floppies. To be safe,
    though, most airports will inspect such items by hand,
    if asked.

  4. Remember, operative word is SHOULD. "Mission criticle" info should not
    be trusted to floppies anyway - WAY too delicate these days, My opinion.

    When in doubt, ask the item to be hand-inspected... or use CD-R media
    since it will not be affected by x-ray.

    The OP didn't mention anything about "mission criticle", or even
    "mission critical" data, for that matter.
    Please respond to the OP and not to the respondent.
    I'm not terribly interested in the matter, or I would have posted the
    question myself.

    I just joined up for one purpose. To reply to harrison.

    Did you actually read your post before you submitted it?

    Dude get off your high horse before you fall off and hurt yourself! :horse::nurse:

    The guy you was patronising was actually being very helpful to the poster and offered some sound advice. It was not spot on point, but still very relevant.

    You Sir, are a fool, and certainly not a gentleman. :yell:
