can i use Apple 2005 20-inche cinema display on Mac pro ?

If the display has a DVI connector it will plug into the Mac Pro directly.  If it uses ADC (Apple Display Connector)
you will need a DVI to ADC adapter

  • New cinema display on Mac Pro monitor keeps turning off/going dark. Support told me a keyboard shortcut (something like option R L)... I'd appreciate it if anyone knows it. I had this problem when i 1st bought it 2 months ago.

    My new cinema display fro mac pro just went dark. When I 1st bought it, the display wouldn't turn on.I called support and they gave me a keyboard shortcut - something like Option+R+L - that you held down for 2 restart cycles. Then it magically turned on. I can't remember the sequence and I'm afraid to guess! I'd appreciate if anyone knows the trick. I'm also wondering if I should bring this display back...

    Cassandra from Apple Support ROCKS!!!! She's a supervisor somewhere and should have a raise. Pleasant, smart and professional with a customer who wouldn't take "I don't know" for an answer.
    If your cinema display goes dark:
    1. shut down computer
    2. restart
    3. immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R keys simultaneously for a few minutes (seems forever)
    4. keep holding keys for 2 startup cycles
    5. release and go back to work if you're lucky to have a restored screen

  • Dual Cinema display on Mac Pro

    Ok so i have 2 cinema displays, one is the 22' inch DVI and the other is 23' inch ADC. Well i finally got my ADC to DVI converter so i can use the 23' inch CD on my Mac Pro. Well finds out, when i connect the 22' inch DVI and the 23'inch with the ADC to DVI converter to the mac pro side by side, it doesnt fit. I need about about 1cm of clearance so i can connect both displays to the back of the computer. Both connectors are hitting each other. The ADC to DVI connector is a little bulky.. What is the easiest way around this fix ?

    Your computer should have come with a short DVI extension cable with a narrow plug, which will fit beside the other DVI plug. If not, you could file down the DVI plugs.

  • Can I use my iMac as a screen for my Mac Pro via Spaces?

    Ok, I know this sounds odd... Nevertheless, I wanted to know if it's possible to do this. I write a lot of music and want to use two completely different computers to manipulate midi files vs. audio files. I want to use my Mac Pro for actually writing the music, and then render the files as audio and arrange them on my iMac.
    I don't want to get a second monitor, but rather, be able to flip back and forth between my iMac and my Mac Pro on the same screen, relatively quickly. I'm not sure if Spaces has this capability, ie. using one desktop that corresponds to the iMac and one desktop that corresponds to the Mac Pro, all on the iMac's screen.
    Is this even possible or does the iMac not even have the capability of accepting a video signal from my Mac Pro?

    If you Mac Pro has a mini display port out, then the iMac can be used as a monior for the Mac Pro. This is from the apples support document:
    To use a 27-inch iMac in Target Display mode with another computer as the source:
    1. Make sure both computers are turned on and awake.
    2. Connect a male-to-male Mini DisplayPort cable to the Mini DisplayPort on each computer. The 27-inch iMac will enter Target Display mode and display content from the source computer.
    Note: If you are connecting two 27-inch iMacs, connect a Mini DisplayPort cable to each computer and press Command + F2 on the 27-inch iMac keyboard that you will use as an external display.
    3. To leave Target Display mode, press Command + F2 on the keyboard of the 27-inch iMac that is in Target Display mode. To return to Target Display mode, press Command + F2 again.

  • 5770 with 27" Apple LED and two 20" Apple Cinema Displays w/Mac Pro

    As stated, I just bought a brand new Mac Pro 8-core (2010 ID 5,1) with a 5770 card and I'm trying to hook up a new 27" Apple LED and two 20" cinema displays. One of the 20" monitors is using the MDP adapter into the 5770 and the 27" is directly connected to the other MDP port. When I try to hook up the other 20" to the DVI port on the 5770 I get nothing. The screen is black and the it is not recognized as being connected. I'm using the standard DVI connector that came with the 20" direct into the 5770. To make sure it isn't a monitor problem, I switched out the 20" displays and both work using the MDP adapter but neither work plugging directly into the DVI port on the 5770. I believe the 20" monitors use DVI-D. (Is that correct?) So what's the scoop on getting blank screens when plugging into the DVI port on the 5770? Thanks for any help.

    "• the 27" is directly connected to the other MDP port.
    • One of the 20" monitors is using the MDP adapter into the 5770.
    • When I try to hook up the other 20" to the DVI port on the 5770 I get nothing.
    Note: If you are using an Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter, only two displays are supported across the three ports.
    If you are connecting three displays, any DVI displays must be connected to either the Dual-Link DVI port or must use an Apple Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link Adapter.
    You MUST use All "Active" or "Powered" Mini DisplayPort connector such as the Apple Dual Link, or you can only use two displays

  • 30-inch cinema display & Power Mac G4 Mirror Door

    Does anyone know if it's possible to set up a Power Mac G4 to run a 30-inch aluminum cinema display? I have a G4 running a 22" apple display (clear enclosure) and want to purchase another desktop to run the 30-inch display without spending a fortune. I had it running on a G5 (June 2004) M9457LL/A but that just died, (logic board failure).

    That monitor will work with a computer that has a DVI port, but you need this card to get a dual-link DVI port which is required to use it at its full capacity.

  • Can I use XP, Vista and Windows Server on my Mac Pro

    Looking for options to have multiple Operating Systems available for bootup.
    I need to have the ability to run XP, Vista, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 server. I am currently using a Windows PC with BootCommander. I want to use my Mac Pro for its power.
    I have tried to use VMWare Fusion and it works perfectly. However, Camtasia crashes regularly within Fusion and I need high resolution desktop captures and the way virtualization does (rather does not) virtualize the RAM on the video card has made it not a viable solution.
    Your help is appreciated.

    Format one or more of your drives as MBR and setup some partitions. Install in proper order. Or use multiple drives. Maybe someone on Fusion forum can help.
    Some have used multiple VMs with Fusion and Apple Pro RAID5.

  • Can I use second drive from my G5 in a Mac Pro?

    Does anyone know whether I can transfer the second drive in my G5 Power Mac to an opend rive bay in a Mac Pro?
    Thanks in advance

    Rest assured your 2-3 yr old SATA drives will work. An "ATA" (EIDE or PATA) will not work. There is a tight fit, but nothing to prevent using any SATA drive.
    Your G5 drives will work just fine. Drives that are newer, SATA II (3Gb/sec) will run slightly better, and the Mac Pro has support for things like NCQ.
    Four drive "sleds" are included, each with the necessary screws for attaching a SATA drive. The 250GB Seagate 7200.9 drive included with the computer had SATA-only power connections, while a 80GB Maxtor SATA drive from our Power Mac G5/1.8 had both SATA and traditional power connections, but it, too, fit into the supplied sockets when the sled was pushed into place.
    Serial ATA Drive Interface
    The Mac Pro comes standard with one 7200 rpm, 3 Gbps Serial ATA (SATA) disk drive and three additional 3 Gbps SATA slots for adding hard disk drives. The SATA drives interface through an AHCI 1.1 controller that supports advanced SATA-II features Native Command Queuing (NCQ) and PHY power management. NCQ increases performance on random workloads by allowing the drive to re-order commands to reduce seek time and increase transactional efficiency.
    In addition, the Mac Pro has two unpopulated 3 Gbps SATA buses for expansion. Looking at System Profiler, all 6 SATA busses seem to be active
    For more information on SATA, see Serial ATA International Organization.
    For information on the AHCI controller, see AHCI Specifications.

  • Can I use the 2nd Optical Drive Bay on my Mac Pro for an SSD?

    Since I have no plans to add a second Optical Drive to my Mac Pro in the Second Optical Drive bay, I was wondering if I could put an SSD in that bay using a 2.5' to 3.5" drive carriage. Is this possible? Would it work? Would I be able to use it as my boot drive? Never tried this, so not sure if it would work.
    Thanks in advance.

    Your 2010 model has SATA wiring in that bay, so the SSD plugs right in.
    Macs can boot from the drive specified in System preferences > Startup Disk.
    You would need an adapter from 2.5 size of the drive to the 5.25 (CD drive) size expected, but since there are no moving parts, most folks just dump the drive in there without a bracket.
    The biggest payback comes from establishing a Boot Drive with only System, Library, Applications, and the hidden Unix files including Paging/Swap. Putting the boot drive on an SSD is frosting -- it provides an incremental improvement over a spinning Boot drive.
    A caution when establishing your drive -- some users have killed brand new SSD drives by cloning onto them. The manufacturers have not been helpful in telling us why this happens, but a clean Install may be a better way to proceed.

  • Can I use a new CPU in my early 2009 MAC PRO Single 2.8 Quadcore

    Is it possble to replace the CPU Module with the latest CPU moduels on off for the Mac Pro?
    The current one is below
    Header 1
    Header 2
    Mac Pro4.1 Quad Core Intel Xeon 2.66
    i Processor Early 2009

    Hello. I have done this many times. When I originally had the 2009 Nehalem single quad, it was a 2.66 processor as well. I bought the w3580 which is the top of the line of that generation and runs at 3.33 ghz with turbo boost up to 3.60. The procedure to change the 2.66 to say the 3.33 is the same as for the 2010 series processors 2.8(also nehalem w3530) and the 3.2 which is a w3565. The only processors you would not be able to upgrade with the original 2009 boards are the hex core, or w36xx series. This is because of the firmware upgrade which recognizes Westmere or B1 stepping.
    Think of it this way.. any w35xx will work in the 2009 and or 2010 mac pro(single quad only) while the w36xx series will only work in the 2010 series.
    Mind me asking what you currently use your mac pro for of which would warrant the need to go with a higher speed processor? You could very well just max out the memory and or pick up SSD drives and that alone will help to dramatically speed things up. W3580 3.33 will run you about 400-600 dollars, sometimes even less. The w3580 is the max you can go with the 2009 mac pro series.. then its getting the dual boards if you want to go even further, but I don't recommend that as the processor board and processors themselves are about as close to a 2010 mac pro.

  • Can I use this USB 2.0 card in my mac pro?

    I have a brand new Belkin USB 2.0 5 port PCI card that says its compatible with MAC
    I have a mac pro 2.8 8 core and i need to add mroe USB ports. However it says the card is PCI and i don't want to put it in if its not going to work, or not work well
    can you guys let me know what i should do?

    Considering that two people have had nothing but trouble with Belkin USB hubs (one G5, other was Mac Pro) I'd exchange it when you do for another brand, not that their PCIe won't work, just lately a poor track record perhaps.

  • Can I use a PowerMac G4 Power Cable on a Mac Pro?

    I got a Mac Pro 1,1 (1st Generation from 2006) and I don't have a power cable with it. I do, however have a PowerMac G4 with the same sized cable.  Would I be able to safely use the PowerMac G4 Cable with the Mac Pro?

    Not a problem, the cables are rated for much more power than the machines will draw so they are interchangeable.  Any computer cable with the same three-prong connection will work.

  • Want to run two 30" cinema displays from Mac Pro

    I'm running Avid Media Composer software to edit a film that I made, and I would like to run (if possible) two Apple 30" cinema displays next to each other off of my Mac Pro (the computer was purchased at end of 2009). While editing with Avid software, I like to spread out my work and bins in able to see everything, and strange as it may sound, I'd like more room than one 30" display can provide. Currently, I have one Apple 30" Cinema display in use, and could purchase another large display if I can find out-- definitively, if my Mac Pro computer will be able to handle it and power it effectively. I realize that Apple doesn't sell the 30" displays anymore, but I saw a few relatively inexpensive ones available on Craigslist recently.
    The second monitor that I'm using now is a much older (non-Mac) monitor (and smaller) and the resolutions don't match the high resolution of my single Apple 30" display. So, my reason for wanting a second, larger display are twofold... 1) to see more of my work, and 2) to get the highest resolutions to match (2560x).
    The ports on the back of the Mac Pro don't look like they will support the use of a second 30" display, just one. Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Do I need to purchase another video card to run a second 30" Apple display? If so, which ones are best/do you suggest?
    Do I need to upgrade my processing speed (get a faster processor) to run two large, high-rez monitors?
    Mac Pro
    Processor: 2 x 2.8 GHz
    Memory: 2 GB
    800 MHz DDRZ FB-DIMM
    Quad-Core Intel Xem
    Purchased end of 2009

    If it has two DVI ports, just plug in the second display with an additional Dual-Link DVI cable -- the card can run both displays without issue.
    If it has one DVI and one other type, Exactly which display card do you have installed?

  • How to connect the 27" cinema display to Mac Pro?

    Hallo, I want to connect my mac pro, early 2008, with force gtx 285 to a apple cinema display 27", which adapter do I need??? Sorry for my english, I'm from austria. Thanks for your help :-)

    To drive the 27" to its full reolution you need a male dual link DVI to female mini-displayport adaptor.  Apple makes one but it is not cheap ($99).  Stick "dual link dvi to mini-displayport adaptor" into a google search and maybe you can find something cheaper.

  • 3 x Cinema Displays on Mac Pro

    I´m about to configure my BTO Mac Pro 3.0 Ghz. I want to run 3 x Cinema Displays off this system and I wonder if it is possible to combine one X1900 XT graphics card and one Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT (instead of 2 x 7300 GT..) ?
    I´m getting 3 x 23" Displays, but I also want to keep the possibility open to run 2 x 30" displays at some point. Besides, I generally like the idea of having a X1900 XT available in my system..
    Would this work ?
    Any input is highly appreciated.

    When the Mac Pro first came out there was a note in the video developer note saying not to mix NVIDIA and ATI cards, but there is no such note in the latest revision of the note.
    If you use a X1900 and a 7300 GT, put the X1900 in slot 1 and the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT in slot 4 and set the PCI-Express bus to x16 x1 x1 x8.
    If you use two X1900s, put them in slots 1 and 2, and set the PCI-Express bus to x8 x8 x1 x8.
