I can't remember where, but I read that some 32X link cables can harm your hardware.
Does that have any merit?

Will these cables harm a model 1 Sega Genesis?  https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Sega...

I can't see how it could... Only thing I can think of is if the pins were wired incorrectly or something, but you'd instantly notice if they were since the 32X wouldn't work.

The link cable is simply an RGB cable.
If wired bad, 5 volts could go to the wrong pin inside the 32X.
