I'm a bit confused regarding the TSA's policy for bringing portable electronic equipment through airport security.

I know all large electronics like laptops and game player consoles need to be removed from your carry-on and placed in separate bins.

But how about portable CD players (I'm old-fashioned), digital cameras, and compact discs?

I'd like to take these three personal items with me on board in my carry-on.

So would I have to take each item out of my carry-on and place them in a separate bin at the security checkpoint?

Please let me know what the current rule of thumb is for these types of small electronics. I want to be well-prepared.

Camera i've never removed from my carryon. Dont have a CD anymore. But i would leave them in my carryon, If they get flagged they will pull it off the line and check it. You migth want to invest in a MP3 Player Battery last longer, and you can get every CD you own on to it. Also bring a connect plug from the MP3/IPod etc to Car aux plug so you have your music in your car/rental.

You can get them at all the big box stores for $2-3.

You don't have to remove any of those things. I have a camera purse, which holds my D90 and 3-4 lenses and just put the bag in a bin, without taking anything out.

I brought a full on Dell Dimension desktop computer through a TSA checkpoint last June.

You can bring those little one shot liquor bottles through security too - as long as they can fit in a one quart bag. You can probably fit five or six in there along with what you normally put in there. Perfectly legal.

Those little bottles, like vodka, are about a buck in a liquor store.
Airlines charge $6 or $7 for a Screwdriver (vodka and orange juice).
Orange juice is free on a plane.
