Vcr recording hook up to pc

Hello, my father in law can't work the tv any longer, as well as a dvd player... i was wondering if i could record movies that i have down loaded on my pc so that i can make him a video tape? if so, how do i connect it? i am running windows xp sp3 (don't laugh) home edition 2003 on hp pavilion. thank you very much for your time. julie juliedegree33@hotmail.com

  1. you need a composite video out of your PC and a vcr that will take the inputs (typically they have av inputs at the back).

    you didn't provide your laptop model, so I can't look up what ports you got. typically laptops have a nice array of video outputs, if you have a S-video out, I'm pretty sure you can buy a cable that will plug into S-video on your laptop and plug into av jacks on the vcr.

    after that you'll just have to play the movie in full screen while recording it
  2. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, I,LL GO GET THE CORDS TOMORROW.

    SINCERELY YOURS, JULIE
