Hi MSAIT,
Not that I have ever heard of. It has a better chance of not working from being dropped or banged around while in transit.

The x-ray machines can fog film, but they are not so powerful that they will damage electronic equipment.  Otherwise, they would be a health risk to anyone nearby and would destroy every electronic device near them, including themselves.  It is more likely that electrostatic discharge, condensation, or mechanical vibration damaged your equipment.

I have flown approximately 1.5 million miles and have had my laptop(s) w/PCMCIA cards through belt X-Rays and in the Cargo Hold and have never experienced any problems.

My newsest laptop has built in Wi-Fi and no problems there either.
