    Im going on holiday to mexico from the uk in a few days and i was wondering if at one of the airports, when i put my bag through the scanner thing (the one you shouldnt put your hand in), if they could detect the dstwo and confiscate it. I heard that 1000s of flashcarts had been confiscated before.

    As Kouen Hasuki said if you are bringing in a crate of the things someone might raise an eyebrow. To the best of my knowledge anybody going with a personal use sort of thing has never had anything confiscated anywhere and hundreds of us go through airports all the time with them and it has not happened a single time that has been reported on (and I imagine that is the very sort of thing we would hear about at the first available opportunity).
    If they somehow did then it would be far more likely because they are confiscating all electronic items because they think you are doing something else wrong which is quite easy to avoid doing.

    Me? Several times as have hundreds of other flash cart users.
    Granted not to Mexico but it is not like they have the harshest IP laws anyway.

    I've crossed the UK, Norway, Sweden and Denmark boarders through airports and boat ports with my DSLite loaded with flash carts in both slot 1 and 2 as well as my CFW PSP they never say a word

    Nah, it's almost as silly as checking through your laptop for pirated software/games.​
