6 inch, Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter Cable, Mini-DVI Male to DVI Female
Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter Cable, Mini-DVI Male to DVI Female, 6 inch
Wouldn't playing computer games, watching downloaded movies, or anything else done on your Apple laptop be even better displayed on your home monitor or HDTV? That is exactly what this cable allows you to do! This cable enables you to use your mini-DVI port to hook up your laptop to a larger monitor that accepts DVI. With this durable mini-DVI to DVI cable you are also able to essentially turn your television into a giant monitor. Because the mini-DVI signal output from your Macintosh laptop does not require conversion to full-sized DVI, this cable is all you need to hook-up your computer directly to your TV or monitor that features a DVI port!
Mini DVI was used on the 12" PowerBook G4 with the exception of the first generation which used Mini VGA. Mac's that are newer than 2008 should have a mini Display Port.
(Please note: You would still need to run a separate audio cable if you desire because DVI does not carry audio)

connectors don't work. Not sure issue with this cable

Works just like the product from Apple at a tiny fraction of the price. Connected a Samsung 22" digital display to my 24" Aluminum iMac. Works great.

Works as proscribed. Very tight fit on the MiniDVI end so do not expect it to be like a mag safe connector and let go when yanked.
