    I've been looking for a USB cable for charging the DSi when I go abroad on holidays (I take a Mains/USB plug & a selection of cables for all my gizmos instead of all the different chargers) & I came across this (one of many)

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/USB-Charger+Data-Tra...4QQcmdZViewItem

    & I'm a little bit puzzled by the statement that it's a Charger AND Data Transfer cable

    So my question is - What data can you supposingly 'transfer' between your DSi & your PC via USB ?

    I've seen no mention about DSi/PC transfer capabilities other than 'You can take photos & transfer them to your PC (via memory card)'. I've had a quick (& I do mean quick) look through the Manual & there seems to be no mention there either

    Just speculation, but a pc might recognize the SD card as a usb device. It might even recognize the DSi internal memory, but I doubt that.

    just to confirm, mercluke is right. the cable does not let you send or recieve data/files to and from the DSi. I don't think the DSi's port is capable of it.

    Just as I thought, but wanted to check anyway.

    Do you think I can sue for 'False advertising' ? [​IMG] (& No I havn't brought one)
