I want to add a second screen to my Imac and I found a Cinema Display (ADC). I went to see the screen and i connect it to my Macbook to test if it works. The guy who sold the screen had an ADC to DVI adapter and I bought an DVI to thunderbolt connector. It didn't work. He also tried to connect it to his Imac and still the screen didn't work. Is it even possible to connect the screen to an Imac?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
