I have the mac mini for a month using the VGA cable.
I decided to buy the DVI cable. Then I realised that the DVI port is not the same as the Mac Mini. Does anyone of you guys know how to fix this(any special cable?)

My monitor is 730MW Samsung. I'll try to post the pic soon.
Thanx in advance.

You may need a DVI-I to DVI-D cable. Do you know what kind of DVI port is on the back of your display?
