I have an "old" Apple Cinema Display - Not the 1st one that cost >$3000.  I think it is the 2nd model.  (It is certainly NOT the new current models!)


My Cinema Display was working perfectly with my 2007 MacBook Pro which has died.  (RIP)


So I bought a new non-retina 13" MBP with 2.9GHz, 8GB RAM, 750GB 5400 serial-ATA drive running OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. 


I bought a Thunderbolt-to-DVI adapter and my "old" Cinema Display is as beautiful as ever

-- BUT the top resolution is 1280 x 800! [with 3 other resolutions less than that (in Display under "Scaled" button in System Preferences)].


argh, How can I get my Apple Cinema Display to a "higher resolution" near/like it used to be!?  Please, please help!!!  I'm in tears (so to speak)

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 8GB SDRAM; 750GB HD

You need to use a dual-link DVI adapter.
