Mike Fagan wants to use his iPad instead of a laptop, but want an external monitor:
My problem is that my office has a 30-inch Cinema Display that has only a DVI-D connection. Is there any way to connect my iPad (lightning) connector to the 30-inch Cinema?
You can get an Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter ($50) and then use an HDMI (male) to DVI (female) adapter, like this one from StarTech ($7.50 on Amazon). (Without testing, I can’t guarantee that any given iPad and these two adapters will work, but others have reported success, and there’s no reason it shouldn’t work.
