    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.

    first...what is triple postin.i dont see where i did anything three times.and i thought the reason for forums was to look for help.what good would it be to search the stores if i dont know exactly what im lookin for or if the item even exists. have u tried searchin one of those sites when u dont know exactly what your lookin for.plus im thinkin somethin like that would be at a computer store not electronic all purpose department store

    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

    the item at that link u provided wont work however it is intriguing.might get it anyway.but i did search external tv tuners on google and ebay.They ranged from 50 on ebay to 200 on various sites.most say that they are compatible or specially made for laptop.some have av, co ax and s video inputs so thank you for your suggestion. looks like that was a great deal of help.
