-Using the ELF-Loader
-Using a prepared Homebrew-Disc
If you yank out the tray to swap for another disc, it could harm your hardware of course.
Might it be due to wrong handling (user-error) or due to other things.
It's physics, so yes it could damage the tray easier in a FAT atleast, but this issue doesn't even come into play when you use the ELF-Loader.
