Will you be able to play DSi games on a DS?

The DSI is the same games and mostly the same but with more features to it. For example the camera, wifi, songs, recording. Also, a new feature is added in Pictochat if you click the pen twice. Last, the DSI is not able to play any gameboy games because it does not have the slot for it. Oh and if you dont know you can switch it for your DS for $70. And if you just buy it and not switch it, it's $170. - from previous respondent Good information, but fails to answer the question. You asked: "Will you be able to play DSi games on a DS?" And the simple answer is: No, you will not. DSi games will ONLY play on the DSi, not the DS Lite nor the original DS unit. If you do get DSi games to play on the DS Lite or original unit, consider yourself lucky, because they're not meant to.

Can you connect the DSi with the DS lite?

For the most part, yes you can. If you want to connect with pictochat or DS games (including DS Download), you can connect between a Nintendo DS and DSi. However, for DSi specific games, such as DSi games and certain applications, the Nintendo DS will not be able to connect. But, note that certain DSiWare games that can DS download play still can be connected to the Nintendo DS.
