I'd add an additional backup to dvds also, just in case there is some
unlikely condition that the machines can somehow zap digital memory.
That's paranoia. A maybe more reasonable explanation is that the laptop
and external drives, and probably the cards, would probably all travel
in the same carry-on, but you might be less inhibited about separately
putting the dvds in checked luggage. Where any backing up is concerned
you can't have too much redundancy.
