I just got my Jobo Giga One and it works pretty well, but my main concern is going through the X-Ray machines at the airport.  Will this harm the machine or the data on it in any way?

One extra question here as well.

I will be shooting 2 cameras - a 30D and a 350D....how will that work with the GIGA ONE.  Will the files overwrite each other if they have the same file name?  Can this be prevented by shifting forward the date on one of the cameras so that its say, 1 month ahead?

Modern Airport Xray machines wont harm the unit, although I suppose if you left it to simmer in the Xray for an hour or two it would probably erase the data.

Dunno about the second question, depends on whether it creates a new folder for each download session.  Changing the date on your camera will not help, as that dosn't effect the file names.

I have ha downloader similar to yours so my comments relate to mine which should be similar.

X ray is fine.  Dide it yesterday in fact.

It dumps the entire contents into a file labelled CF0001.  Net time it will be CF0002.  So no chance of overwriting.

I also got a GigaOne, but I only carried it in the checked-in luggage.  If it went through x-rays, it didn't suffer from it.

if the x-ray machine is fine for laptops (which have to go through) it would be just as fine for other electronics.

BTW, why is airport security asking if you have a notebook in the hand lugagge?  Why does it need to be x-rayed seperately (I believe this is why they ask it).
