Hello
I am sorry if my prefix is not accurate but I could not find whay applied to this brief question.
I will be flying soon and would like to know if my container of discs(dvd + cd) is safe to carry on or store .
I am referring to xray and magnetism in that erasures may occur.
If it is safe to bring the discs, what is the best way to handle my pc, router and discs?
Thank you

Optical drives are perfectly safe going through airport security devices. Hard drives are also safe from x-rays but you should not allow them to be exposed to electro-magnetic radiation.

Hello
I will now feel better about carrying my cd/dvd's in their regular carrying case.
Thank you, Pat
