    I recently bought a Samsung T200 display to use with my macbook.
    Seeing as it said it was Mac compatible I was surprised to find the driver, program etc sent only work on windows. Anyways the resolution on the macbook is 1280x800 and the T200 is 1680x1024 I can seem to get the screen clear and it is shown as a smaller than screen size.

    Can anyone help?

    thanks, debra

    go to system preferences> displays > arrangement and uncheck mirroring

    The beauty of Macs, and OSX is that there is no need for drivers, you just plug in and your computer will be ready, as for adjusting the screen resolution head to system preferances and click your external, then adjust the resolution as desired, also uncheck the mirroring like nkj suggested, this will give you an extension of your desktop instead of a duplicate
