    Unhappy Mini Display troubles
    Hello,

    Right this might be a really dumb newby question but, I bought a mini display to DVI adapter for my iMac. I want to convert the DVI to VGA since I don't have any DVI monitors.

    When I connect the mini display to my Macbook nothing happens, no extra display is added or anything.

    These are some photos of the cable and the adapter.

    So if anyone could please explain to me why this isn't working I will be very happy, or if someone could please give me a way of achieving this I will be very very grateful.

    Cheers Mark.

    You can't convert the adapter. You need to buy another adapter - this time one which is MDP to VGA. Apple adapters are expensive, try HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more! instead.
