    Hey guys,
    I was wondering if there was a way to use the DS headset on my computer for Skype and what not.
    Has it been done?
    If not, could I possibly connect the DS to my PC using wireless and have the microphone inputs be transferred that way?
    If not, possibly an adapter could be made to go from the Lite's propieitery slot to USB or something?

    You guys are the experts, hope you can help me.

    I don't think so, a ds headset only has 1 jack, right?
    You'll need seperate jacks for input and output if you wanna use it on your pc.

    Well, its got the standard 3.5mm audio and then some proprietary jack that it uses for the mic, so I'm not sure how I could connect that to my PC.

    the 3.5mm jack is for the audio output, the tiny "connector" next to it is for the audio input.

    this could be possible, you should buy a audio jack (normally used for replacement) and look how it connects.


    edit: buying a microphone or a headset is alot cheaper than trying this method. ;-)

    Ah I see what you did there, your best bet would be to search for extension plugs or something of the sort.
