    Why would an airport confiscate a memory card?

    Do they think that it could be used to magically hack into the planes flight path and re-route it?

    I very much doubt they would take your DS, take the flashcart out of it and then take the MicroSD out (and then put it into a computer to find out it's contents). Just keep it in a bag or something if you're worried.

    Wow, so not true. They don't have time to check little things such as memory cards. Their only job is to check for metal object such as guns and knives and etc.

    Trust me. I went on vacation which involved flying. And I was asking question to people like, "Do the security check your flashcart for illegal things?" Many many people said no. Which was true because on our way coming home. My family had to get physically searched since we switched planes so they thought we were suspicious. And I have this little backpack I had ALL my ds stuff in and flashcarts and iPod etc. And the guy went through it with no problem at all. I'm sure as heck he did see my EDGE, but didn't do anything about it. So don't worry. They don't check those little things such as those.

    No one read the news then? ALL memory cards/ Laptops and PDA devices will be taken for inspection if flying in or out of america due to security measures further tightening.. but my suggestion is Memory card in flashcart/ falshcart in DS/ DS in backpack and u'll be fine

    No.

    Who even knows anything about what a ROM is, besides those who keep up with what's going on online. Especially if you zip them all into a single archive, and then use that DS zip extraction homebrew app to return everything to normal once your done.

    Their measure is one of the dumbest things possible in light of the existance of P2P technology and large online storage. But the worst thing about it is invasion of privacy. I'll be sure to copy Goatse after Goatse on mine, and see who lasts longer, my memory or their brains. I'm also copystoring my data in the comp as a disguised ZIP system file because I'm not trusting those idiots not to corrupt my data. Airport queues were already long enough, now this.

    False. The new rules are that laptops and such may be taken from you and searched for an extended period of time, NOT that all such devices will be inspected. Don't spread lies, please.

    Funny, the story you cited seems to back up what Aerundel said. Did you actually read it?
