I've been recording some stuff with my guitar by connecting my guitar straight to my computer with my cable and using a computer porgramme (guitar fx 3) to get the sound..

I recently heard this can damage your cables, what do you think?
doubt it

Not a chance.

Stepping on it can damage it, a cat or dog can chew it to shreds, towing your car with it might not be healthy, but using it to plug into a computer can't do anything but get a better recording.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
