Q: Will this allow me to connect my computer with VGA output to a DVI-D monitor?
A: Unfortunately, conversion from VGA to DVI-D can not be done with a passive cable.
For that you will need our part MDV-200.
The 1145 series DVI video cable is
a VGA to DVI cable with male connectors
on each end. Its most common use is to
attach a DVI-I video card to a VGA monitor.
This cable functions equally well
as a VGA to DVI cable, in fact it's an
entirely passive assembly and device-independent.
However, it's important to note that if anything
in your configuration is DVI-D, HDMI, or DisplayPort,
this cable will not be of use.
This is not a digital-to-analog cable.
It will carry a DVI-A or the analog portion
of a DVI-I signal to a VGA port. It will not
convert a DVI-D digital signal to analog.
The first connector is of type DVI-A Analog, and
the other connector is a standard 15-pin VGA/SVGA male.
We also carry a DVI to VGA
Adaptor, if you already have a DVI or VGA cable.
Please note that some DataPro products, while listed in feet
for consistency, are built in meter increments. As such,
the actual length of the cable may be slightly longer than listed.

DVI Info and FAQ page.
