SxS Cards and Airport Screeners

Has anyone traveled through an airport screener and come back with an empty card? I wonder how safe scanning the cards will be as well as the sesitivity to magnetic fields in general. I am considering this camera, I'm just currious how reliable the cards are.

I haven't had any problems through the airport screeners. I had left a card in my laptop yesterday and it had no problems after.

Same here. No Issues. Just got back from Sydney with both my cameras. EX1 and a V1U.

Shouldn't be any problem - SxS cards aren't magnetic storage and it should take a pretty insane amount of electromagnetic radiation to hurt one...
