So...can I charge my DS lite by just connecting it to my PC with a regular USB cord?

No. All you do is plug the charger into the DS and plug it into the power outlet. No middle man is needed. Why would they use a USB cord to charge the DS? :?

Not with a regular USB cord. However if you look around online you can get a USB cable for the DS, they cost about $5US.

I thought the power cord was just a usb...but now that I look at it again it appears to be different. I bought one of those DS usb cords.
