How do I take my harddrive and laptop on the plane? If I have it in carry-on will it get fried by the x-ray?
You are fine.
X-Rays do not damage HD's
Oh that is a relief! I'm stressed. We're moving back to the states and I have too many things to think about. Have 4 luggages so big I can't lift them.
If anybody's had problems with xraying powerbooks or harddrives let me know
i've had mine x-rayed plenty of times and it seemed to handle it fine, although i had to replace it (the HD) twice in 2 years (PB titanium). but that didnt have to do anything with it i dont think, i was just unlucky with hard drives..
Bought my PB back from Singapore recently, no worries.
aw that sounded cute 'I have four luggages'
Yeah my english broke from living in Thailand.
It's not suppose to affect anything
on your pc, but if your not sure, use the old 'burn your stuff' technique...
i carried a harddrive inside a padded box with me on an airplane once. had zero problems. i thought they would wonder what it was thou, cause people do not normally carry around a hd from inside a computer in a shady padded metal box.
