I've brought my 2 GB CF cards through many, many airports in different
parts of the world with no effect.

Still, any digital thing can malfunction. I strongly recommend
immediately backing up all your CF files to a hard drive. Backing them
up to two different hard drives (a laptop's and a portable external
drive) wouldn't hurt.
