[QUOTE=Thud]Computer disks can NOT get damaged in an x-ray machine. X-ray machines do not generate a magnetic field. The disks are perfectly safe going through.

In fact, if you don't put the disks through the x-ray, you have to go through the metal detector, which CAN damage disks (because they do generate a magnetic field-- that's how they detect metal!)

Maybe that's what I ment. I knew it was something of that nature.
