quick question! –
i have two ps2's and only 1 memory card and i want to watch movies on one while my niece watches movies on the other one and i was wondering if its safe to remove the memory card housing fmcb while a movie is playing or will it stop or possibly damage the installation or something i don't really want to test it out
once you have run the FMCB and via FMCB you are running SMS then removing it from ps2 i think it wont cause anything ..
but i am sure it wont stop or damage anything .
you could wait for another one to give a clear answer
yup, it still worked. thanks!
Even so, you should be careful when you insert or remove memory card from any program that employs auto-save features like all modern SMS versions do.

This means that SMS will definitely be writing to the memory card whenever you stop playback of a movie. So you need to avoid inserting or removing a memory card directly after such a break, as the write operation can take several seconds (especially on larger slower cards like 64/128 MB models). Removing a card during a write operation can effectively destroy all contents of that card. (Most of the content sectors may remain, but mostly no longer accessible as files.)
