I think there are special drives available for this. Have a look around and you should be able to find the.

If you don't have s-vhs connections,TV better known as (Monitor receiver)and s-vhs video card,then the moon just hung you.
But it's not as simple as that,if you have a dvd player then use it for widescreen.It's not meant for Windows app's,or the inet.
