Apple sell a DVI to Mini Display Port (AKA Thunderbolt) adapter. This is the one I use now and it is very good. I have bought a third -party adapter before and it was really bad: loose fit, colored edges artifacts, and finally no video whatsoever. You get what you pay for, as the saying goes..

You would need a DVI to Thunderbolt adapter. Does your MBP have a FireWire port on it?
