I want to connect my MacBook Pro i7 that has a mini Dsiplay Port/Thunderbolt port. I want to connect it to my VGA NEC LT20 DLP Projector.


I have the Apple MiniDisplayPort to VGA adapter, MB5727Z/A, Model Number A1307 and the computer does not recognize the NEC LT20, nor does the LT20 recieve the MacBook Pro as a computer or other source.


My previous MacBook Pro core duo with DVI to VGA adapter worked fine with the projector.


Is this because the Apple  MiniDisplayPort to VGA adapter is only for computer to VGA video displays?


Is there another adapter that will allow me to use my particular VGA proejctor with my MacBook Pro?


Has my replacing the old computer with the newer one forced me to shell out big bucks to for another projector, thereby making my ability to give educational lectures for free to audiences impossible?

Many & Different, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
