Apple Mini DisplayPort adapter FAIL
UPDATE: See wolrahnaes comment for an explanation to this frustration.

Original Complaint
—————————————-
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.
