I have a apple cinema display monitor and an older apple computer. The monitor connection will not fit the older model computer. I know there must be an adapter. Any ideas?

I'm guessing that the monitor has a DVI-D connector, while the computer has a VGA connector. If that is the case, there is no adapter.

That most likely wouldn't work, because it doesn't convert the analog output from the computer to the digital input needed by the LCD.
