    ipad erased going thru airport security - twice!

    Has anyone else had this problem? It has happened twice - and the most recent time, my co-worker's iPad made it through fine.

    Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    I know this won't help you, but I have flown through several domestic airports as well as the airport in Frankfurt, Zurich and Kiev with no issues.

    When you say 'erased', what do you mean? Do you mean all your apps, photographs, videos and the entire operating system were deleted? I, too, have taken my iPad through airport security and had no issues, so I'm interested in what went on here.

    I was sorry to hear about this; I'm sure it was a real pain, to say the least.

    I've taken mine through Airport Security in more countries and airports than I can count, never with any issues.

    Discounting a hardware fault, I have trouble believing this too. I've taken numerous flights without problem. I think the OP should ask for a return and explain that colleagues on the same flight had no problem.

    It could be a specific fault on the one device itself. If indeed X-rays damaged or wiped the flash memory in iPads, you'd expect that thousands of travellers worldwide would have already encountered it.

    Thanks , I will look into it as a hardware error.

    Thank you for the quick replies.
