    This may seem like a dumb question, but does anyone know what factors may
    effect the data on a CF card? The main things im talking about are:
    X-ray (really powerful ones or mutiple repeated doses)
    Magnetic fields. will putting the card next to a regular or electro-magnetic
    devices corrupt the data within.
    Apart from obvious mistreatment like shock or moisture, are there any other
    circumstances that might effect the data??

    I don't know but I have forgotten mine when getting home, only to find them
    in the dryer, after they had been washed. This has now happened several
    times and they are still ticking over time after time again - we are talking
    about RiData and Sandisk CF cards.

    you can tell they have been worn but I am still amazed that they are

    so they are a bit tougher then they look like

    Might? Well ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) MIGHT effect the data. Key
    word "might".
    And with magnetic fields we have Electomagnetic fields..
