    You can just run the speaker output to the VCR if you need sound. If that jack uses a 1/8" phono plug just get a cable with the correct plugs you need on each end. Radio Shack makes them.

    But try your best to stay awaw from radio rip off. Wall mart, Best Buy and Circuit city sell the above mentioned cables. And dollars cheaper than Radio Shack.

    Oh yeah, another thing you may want to consider. Getting a Y cable so you can have the VCR and the speakers hooked up at the same time. The cable looks like this: On one end it has the male headphone jack. On the other end it has 2 female headphone jacks. This part at Radio Smack is $25. Wal Mart had one for $7. Wal Mart does not always have this part. Best but and Circuit city is $10.

    Plug your VCR into one and your system speakers into the other. Keep in mind that the Windows Volume controll will be the only thing changing sound levels to the VCR. Turning your speakers up and down (on the speakers)will not effect volume to the VCR.
