Actually I'm not so concerned for exposing the camera itself to the xrays as I am the disks. Can the xrays damage a disk and/or files?

I've taken my digital camera and a laptop through the x-ray machine dozens of times in the past two years and haven't had a problem.

I would think with the magnetic media that you are more at risk to damage from setting it near a large speaker or electric motor.
