  1. 1

    Plug one side of the yellow video composite cable into the yellow "Video In" composite port of the TV, then plug the other end into the composite port of the S video to composite adaptor. Yellow composite video cables are usually accompanied by white and red audio composite cables. For this task you will only need the yellow video cable.

  2. 2

    Plug one end of the S cable into the S cable slot on the computer and plug the other end into the S cable slot on the S cable to video composite adaptor. Never force an S cable into the slot as this can warp the interior design.

  3. 3

    Plug the SD card into the card reader and plug the card reader into a USB port on your computer. If you have a newer computer that has built-in SD slots, you don't need a card reader.
