    Am I being really dumb... I ordered a mini-dvi to VGA cable from ebay for my black Macbook. When it arrived it was an official Mac cable, which was great, until I realised it wouldn't fit into my Mac's mini-DVI port! Are there more than one 'size' of mini-dvi port or something? And how do I make sure I get the right one?

    It was indeed a mini-VGA to VGA cable! Good spot. Well they sold it as a mini-dvi, so they've given me a full refund and told me to keep the cable! Which is good, as they're in China and i'm in the UK! :)

    Thanks for the help. Will try and re-sell this with the correct information i guess!

    I made the same mistake you did, but good thing I realised just after I had left the store.
