Apple Mini DisplayPort adapter FAIL
Posted Date: 2008-10-24 02:57:25 , By : DeaPeaJay
UPDATE: See wolrahnaes comment for an explanation to this frustration.
Apple’s Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter is a "DVI-D Dual Link". Their other adapter DVI to video (s-video & composite, which I use all the time) is a "DVI-I Single Link".
The two connectors are incompatible with each other because there’s 4 pins on the DVI-I Single link that can’t plug into the DVI-D…. very frustrating!
DVI-I is Digital and Analog, DVI-D is Digital only. I think the reason Apple made the adapter DVI-D (Digital only) is so that they could sell more Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapters. Shame on Apple.
got my DVI info here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface
As requested, in Layman Apple: Apple made their new DVI adapter incompatible with several of their existing adapters, requiring you to buy *another* adapter (VGA) that can then be converted again to the signal you need, such as S-Video or Composite Video.
Apple Stickers OH MY!

This button, given out to people at Silicon Valley parties in the late 80’s, early 90s, was adverse to Apple suing Microsoft in Apple Computer Inc. v. Microsoft Corporation, over look and feel GUI elements of their OS desktops.
