Sounds like you're going to need the Apple DVI to ADC Display Adapter. Two problems: 1) Apple doesn't sell them anymore, try a google search; 2) They cost around $100, because besides providing the necessary video connection conversion and USB extensions, it actually powers the display. Note the absence of an AC cord for the display.
The now defunct ADC connection provided video, usb, and AC power connections in a single cord.

Lanny, do you have any of these DVI to ADC adapters?
Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2012 7:54 AM (in response to Brian Crowley)
I have one, but I'm using it, right now, in fact.

I too suffer from a similar problem and have the DVIator ADC to DVI conversion kit but still result in no display.
The 22" Apple Cinema Display from 2000 has a single ADC connection. My DVIator is currently allowing me to use the display with my iMacG4 by providing external power and a DVI output.
Now I have a new MacbookPRO 2.0 i7 Quad Core. I took my DVI to Minidisplay that I use at work with my other DVI monitor to hook it up to my Apple Cinema. No dice.. I can press the power button on the display and it lights up but fades out with nothing on the display. Detecting Displays from the Display menu only shows my main laptop screen. Thoughts on how to get this to work? I have all the right pieces and each component works when used individually...

No dice.. Advice please? Should I try obtaining the Apple branded ADC to DVI adapter??

First, there is no such thing as a 22" ADC Apple Cinema Display, it's either a 20" or a 23". Second are you sure that your resolution setting matches that of the Cinema Display. Newer MacBook Pro's have 16x9 resolutions and the 23" Cinema Display is 16x10. The 23" Cinema Display's native resolution is 1920x1200.

(There is an error for the native resolution. It is actually 1600 x 1024)
I am reading your message on a 22" ADC Apple Cinema Display, 1600 x 1024, purchased October 2001 with a G4 Quicksilver Mac. I am using it now with a Mac Pro via the Apple DVI to ADC converter.

I stand corrected, didn't go back far enough. But, he still may not be using the correct resolution with his Dr. Bott device.

The Dr. Bott DVIator may need a stronger DVI signal than that provided by the Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. If you can't find the Apple DVI to ADC adapter, you could try an active Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. The only Apple one is dual-link
Since you don't need dual-link, you can use a single-link active adapter, such as

Thank you for the responses. I have a feeling that I will need the single-link active adapter at the very least.
Here are the Dr.Bott DVIator specs http://www.dviator.com/us/DVIator.html which has worked quite well for every other DVI system I've used it with.
Hate to drop more bucks on this monitor but it is still beautiful to use and would make a great addition to the i7.
Thank you all for the advice. If I get either option to work I will post the solution to this thread or a new one depedning on age for future reference. I don't seem to be the only person with this problem.

Also make sure the plug on the adapter is pushed in all the way into the Mini DisplayPort on the computer. It can take more force than expected.

I bought a used Applpe-Dual Link adapter and still no go on the display......
I have a feeling the single link won't work either in this case.... I guess I'll have to try the apple branded ADC-DVI adapter?
It's weird... again this was one of the FIRST Apple Cinema DIsplay productions that went along with the G4 Cube.. The display has a power button but its a single push button where a white light shines then fades. Usually that would power up the Cube as well... I'm going to be very sad to see this display go...
Anyone with an ADC Cinema display successfully link it to a Macbook PRO? Malcom said he gets it to work on Mac PRO but that does not get me down to a mini-display adapter....
