No you can't I tried using my Clamshell iBook AV cable and it did not work. But, I used a similar cable from my Dad's Sony digital video camera, and using a site I found (this thread talks about it here. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=166114)) I was able to get it to work perfectly! You basically move the audio and video jacks around and it'll work fine. Enjoy :)
