What adapter(s) do I need to connect my macbook air (mid-2012) to an older 20" cinema display (A1081, M9177LL/A)? 


The cinema display connector has three parts: a USB, a DVI connector and a firewire plug.  Can this be made to work with the new Macbook Air?  What adapters would plug in to which ports on the Air?


thank you.
