    Well, crap. It looks like I purchased the wrong display adapter for my 2011 13" MacBook Pro. I purchased the mini dvi to dvi adapter instead of the mini display port to dvi adapter. I didn't realize there were 2 different display adapters. If anyone wants the genuine Apple OEM mini dvi to dvi adapter, please pm me. So, where is the cheapest place to get a mini display port to dvi adapter?

    I bought it off eBay. It clearly stated it was the mini dvi to dvi so I'm the one at fault. It was brand new in the white Apple packaging. It must of came out of a Mac mini or something. I just managed to find a brand new Apple retail mini display port to dvi adapter on eBay for $14.99 shipped. If anyone wants the mini dvi to dvi adapter, I will ship it to anywhere in the U.S. for $8 paypal.

    Which means you're overpaying for the exact same quality a generic adapter would give you. You probably buy RAM upgrades and HD upgrades straight from apple?

    Same thing happened to me when I bought my first MBP. I remember being really mad at apple for naming both of them "mini"
