i have read through almost every post on these forums and have not found one single post of evidence of how a slide-card or knife / cog trick can damage a ps2. it's always "i've heard" or "i've read" or just someone typing BS. my question is physically how can it damage the ps2? the slide card does nothing that the ps2 doesn't do when u press the eject button, the gear still moves along it's track (just as it does with a slide-card) and back to it's original position. if ANYONE has ever EXPERIENCED any damage to their ps2, none of this "i've heard", "i've read", "my friend", "my cousins friend", etc. please post your experience here so those that use the slide-card or knife trick (like myself) can be aware of it. if the slide-card / knife trick can damage a ps2 at least one person on this forum would have to have a personal experience with physical damage. please post!!! i'm curious as to actually what damage can be done to a ps2 using the slide-card / knife trick.
