    not reliably. USB utilizes packetized digital data, whose occurance, may or may not produce any average dc value.

    The waveform is best captured on an oscilloscope or a logic analyzer. If instead it is the content you are concerned about then the Beagle Analyzer from Total Phase would be my first choice for a cost effective tool.
