Please can anyone help-
1. Can any card programmer read a SKY card?
2. Can any card programmer delete a SKY card info and render it useless?
(I tried auto ID on SKY card in an ELVIS and did not recognise it.)
Silly questions I know, but a mate of mine wants to know!

Thanks for any info regarding this subject!

You may be able to read bits of the card, with certain programmers and certain software, but not enough to do anything and you also run the risk of damaging the card.
