Of course you can

I don't know why there are people here saying that you can't do it.

Bear in mind that you do need a VCR for what I am about to say.

What you do need is a converter, which you should get online. This site could help you do that:

If you want the procedure for the same, there is one on CNET itself:

Hope this helps.
