Hard disk portable

Postby Beru » Wed, 18 Apr 2007 7:08 pm

Hi everybody!

It could be not recommended go to Singapore with a hard disk portable filled with mp3 and divx (movies) content? The size of my laptop's hard disk is not higher and I always travel with an aditional hard disk portable... but in Singapore I'm not sure...

Anybody could advise me?

Thanks!

Nobody will care. If you are bringing in 3,000 illegally copied CD's and DVD's the customs agents will probably want to have a chat. But an extra disk strewn in with a computer, mouse, cables, camera... no way. No one will give it a second look. I carry a backup disk drive all the time.
