You need these two items:

Apple DVI to ADC Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

But at $130 dollars for both of these items...you might just be better off getting a new monitor. Those ADC (single cable) monitors are really "funky" (meaning very obsolete)...I have one as well!

Hope this helps,

I agree the ADC equipped monitors are obsolete, but I love my 23" Apple Cinema HD Display cloaked in acrylic, the picture is still vibrant and I love the way it looks. And by the way I got it for a song on eBay at ($135 shipped).

I could have gotten one just like that for $100 locally...but I only wanted to pay $75...and the seller wouldn't go that low.

No problem though...I have about 12 other monitors.
