Default no display from a 9600xt to a apple cienma

i have a ati all-in-wonder 9600xt, and i recently got a apple cinema 20' lcd display.
i want to use my apple display for my computer. 9600xt card doesnt have a dvi port, so i bought a dvi-vga adoptor as it is told on apple's website.
but it is not detected.

does anyone have any idea what's going on?

thanks for looking.

The apple monitor's are compatible with computers with a DVI port, I don't think it supports VGA>DVI adaptors, your best bet is to find a video card with it's own DVI port.

ThatÂ’s odd I thought that all the 9600XTs had DVI.
