I have a 2010 MacBook Pro 13".
System Requirements: Thunderbolt-enabled Mac computer
You need a Mac with a Thunderbolt port. You cannot make the Thunderbolt monitor work with your older, non-Thunderbolt Mac. Either get a new Mac with a Thunderbolt port, or get the Apple Cinema Display (or other monitor that supports DVI or Displayport.)

Does anyone know if there is an adapter available to solve this problem? I have a 2010 macbook pro without thunderbolt and bought a thunderbolt display ( also use if for a thunderbolt macbook air). Is it even possible to create such an adapte?

If the computer has no Thunderbolt port it csn't use a Thunderrbolt display. There are no adapters that will help.
See if thy will swap thw Thunderbolt display for the Mini DisplayPort version.
They are the same price.
The Mini DisplayPort version will also work with a Thunderbolt computer.
