Will it hurt magnetic tapes if they're subjected to x-ray at the airport?

Question:
Will it hurt magnetic tapes if they're subjected to x-ray at the airport?

Answer:
Magnetic recording media are not affected by x-rays. It's important to note, however, that some international airports are now using magnetic devices to inspect luggage. This type of device may effect your pre-recorded audio or video tape. If it's permitted in the country you're visiting, you should hand carry your material through airport security and ask for a non-magnetic inspection.
