OK this is the THIRD time this has happened to me. I go through airport security and I get buzzed. I go back and it’s the CD in my portable CD player. The TSA takes it out, looks at it, runs it, by itself, through the security machine, then looks at it and says I can’t take it abord and will have to check it.
Of course being a person who always runs late at the airport and carries ONE bag I never check luggage, and I tell them just forget it. Of course then I have to pay for the CD at the public library.
The thing is I carry a lot of CDs and it’s only the library CDs that this has been an issue with. The Chicago Public Library CDs. My personal CDs always go through without a hitch.
Two of them were CDs of music and one was a book on CD. So is the library doing something to the CDs to make them flagged at security? Like I know they put censors on things so it beeps if you don’t check the books or whatever out.
Also initerestingly the CDs are only flagged at the smaller airports, Nashville, Dayton and today in Indianapolis. When I go through the large airports Chicago, Atlanta, St Louis, Kennedy, I have NEVER had anyone even ask about the CDs it passes right through the machine?
Any idea what is up with these CDs and why they are getting flagged?
Yeah I know I should check the CDs but after shelling out $60.00 for three stupid CDs I either won’t take anymore or I’ll make copies before I hit the plane
