    Okay so this is the first time i'm traveling with my iPod and I just want to make sure.
    Can I go through the metal detector with my iPod or can I put it through the Xray?
    Cuz I've heard of instances when they xray drained my friend's cellphone battery etc.

    Btw don't know if i'm posting in the right forum.

    It can go through the x-ray just fine, ive done it myself. You cant take it through the metal detector because it had a metal back, duhh

    Yeah but they are too small to register on the metal detector, it only detects medium to large pieces that could be a gun or a knife etc

    You're kidding, right?

    They can detect finger nail clippers...I'm sure they can detect and iPod with its half metal case.

    Just drop it in the xray machine. It's not a magnet. You'll be fine.

    yeh should be fine to take through, if you are scared just keep it on you and when the metal detector goes off you can just let them search you and show them your ipod =]
