I did it with a couple of friends last year (in a Camry 2010). Oh my! That was fantastic! The road from Hyder is definitely washboardy and there's a bunch of cracks and potholes you have to dodge... If you don't rush it, that should be ok! Anyway, you're going to have an amazing time, enjoy :)

There was no problem with this. Of course I was asked to show my ticket to Hong Kong when I was checking in in the US, as Michael Hampton points out, and also to show my ticket to the US as well as hotel reservations in Taiwan before boarding to my flight to Taiwan in Hong Kong.

Theoretically, custom officials have the right to inspect your storage devices for illegal content. I wouldn't worry about files that you made yourself, but files coming from the Internet (or from your acquaintances who could've also put the files they shared with you on the Internet or gotten them from there in the first place) could be easily identified as ...

There really is no way for border agents to know, for any given music file, whether I'm legally allowed to have it or not. ... How likely am I to get in trouble (as in, getting held up or detained, having devices confiscated, etc.) with the CBP? There is no customs duty on electronic files.
