I have a similar issue. I am trying to connect iMac 27" to Macbook Pro 13" (both 2011 models). I am using mini displayport Male-Male cable to connect both computers. After connecting I have pressed Command + F2 key but nothing happens. Any suggestions?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Hello Varun,


    Requires Thunderbolt...



    iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011) and iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011) and later computers support Target Display Mode via Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable (2 m) when the source is another Thunderbolt-equipped computer.


    iMac (27-inch, Mid 2011) computers do not support Target Display Mode via Mini DisplayPort cables.

    What are all of the compatible cables and cables converters to use on the iMac without thunderbolt. Lets say I get an display-port to mini display-port connection would these work? Thanks
