I have had my BrailleNote checked numerous times by the airport. They always want it removed from my carry on luggage. I don't think I have needed to power it up to prove it is a notetaker.

I can't see any reason why they couldn't. They're just little computers with strange displays on them. If any question should arise, you can power it on and show that the power light comes on (in back) and of corse the display can be seen moving and the audio will also lend confidence that all is well and it is a real machine, (so long as the sound is not turned off).
The SD storage is exactly the same as for any computer or camera, the media are interchangeable. Surely the internal storage is also X-Ray safe.
X-Ray at will...
