I really don't think thats possible, If It Is, then maybe you might need to buy an adapter. usually from, Radio Shack, Circuit City, BestBuy, etc.

Having and using an emulator is not illigal. Using ROM images and discs to play games without paying for them is illigal.

I know that most people use emulators for the sole purposes of playing without paying, and I am not condoning that, however there ARE people that use them legitimately.

If you have tried to get your old NES system repaired to no avail and have no option to buy a new one(other than another most likely defective one from ebay) then you will know what I am talking about.

That said, what you need is video-in for your laptop. Look for something like a dazzle adaptor, or ask around at your local electronics store for something that will allow video capture (IE an external tv card)

OK, In order to USE the emulator, you need the ROMs. You can't use an emulator if you have no ROMs so therefore it's illegal. Emulators are designed for that reason alone and that's why we don't support it.

As for the Video Capture:

http://www.jknelectronics.com/vidcap1.htm

Try googling TV TUNER. RadioShack might be a good place to start, just to get the info you need. Depending on what you use (video cable which is the Red White and Yellow cable or the coaxile cable, the standard cable), you can ask them if they know a PCMCIA card that can plug those cables in. Best bet is the TV TUNER though
