    Like others, I have a Cinema Display that I'm trying to hook up with my MAC G4 (Power Mac Tower) and I Can't figure it out. I bought the expensive DVI-ADC adapter, but the end on the adapter is male and the end on the cinema Display is male. I'm not able to hook it up unless I use 2 adapters... If I get two Female DVI to Male ADC Adapters will the converter still work?

    If you've got a computer with an ADC output and a DVI monitor, you don't need the expensive adapter. The expensive one is for the opposite case, where the computer is DVI and the monitor is ADC (it's expensive because an ADC monitor does not have a power supply).

    it sounds to me like you need the (much cheaper) ADC to DVI adapter, but have the (expensive) DVI to ADC adapter.
