8in DVI to VGA Cable Adapter - DVI-I Male to VGA Female
Connect your VGA Display to a DVI-I source
Product ID: DVIVGAMF8IN
The DVIVGAMF8IN DVI to VGA Cable (8-inch) is used to adapt a DVI Male connector to a VGA female connector and enables you to connect a Flat Panel Display to a PC or MAC® computer with DVI-I output.
The VGA female connection added by the dongle is situated approximately 8 inches away from the DVI output connection, which lessens strain on and prevents damage to the DVI connector while reducing the potential of blocking other available ports.
The DVI male to VGA female adapter is constructed of high quality materials to ensure dependability, and is backed by StarTech.com's lifetime warranty.
Please Note: This product is intended for connections between DVI-I and VGA devices. If your device uses a DVI-D connector, please refer to StarTech.com's High Resolution Video DVI to VGA Converter DVI2VGACON.
The StarTech.com Advantage
- Cost-effective solution for connecting a VGA display to a DVI-I video card
- The 8-inch dongle format reduces the potential of blocking other available ports and removes strain from the DVI connector
- Backed by StarTech.com lifetime warranty

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Buy
This is a passive video signal converter.
A passive video signal converter changes the type of connection that is being used but does not change the signal that passes through the converter. Because the video signal is not modified, passive converters tend to be smaller, simpler, and less expensive than active video signal converters. Examples of passive converters include DVI-I to VGA, HDMI to DVI, and DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort converters.
An active video signal converter modifies both the type of connection that is being used and the signal that passes through the converter. Because this type of conversion can be complex, active converters tend to be larger than passive video signal converters and sometimes require additional power. Examples of active converters include DVI-D to VGA, HDMI to DisplayPort, and VGA to HDMI converters.
For more information about passive and active DisplayPort video signal converters, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/DisplayPort_Converter_DP_Multi_Mode.
For more information about which type of video signal converter you should use when you convert video signals with an MST hub, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.
In order for this DVI to VGA adapter to operate correctly in your setup, make sure that the following is true:
The video source is DVI-I or DVI-A (analog signals must be present).
The video destination is VGA.
DVI to VGA adapter cables are passive and simply use the pins from a DVI-I source to convert to VGA.
Note: The analog VGA signal (DVI-A) must be present on the DVI-I interface. Some DVI-I receptacles may have all 29 pins for DVI-I, but only have a DVI-D signal present. To determine what type of DVI port you have, refer to http://www.startech.com/faq//video_signal_converters_dvi_interface.
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface that can contain different types of signaling, based on the application. DVI cables and ports are created using different connector types to identify what application they are intended to be used in. The connector types are identified by the number of pins on the DVI connector. DVI comes in the following five different connector types:
- DVI-A (17 pin).
- DVI-D Single Link (19 pin).
- DVI-D Dual Link (25 pin).
- DVI-I Single Link (23 pin).
- DVI-I Dual Link (29 pin).
Single and Dual link DVI indicate the maximum resolution capabilities of the video source or video destination. The maximum resolutions are Single Link (1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz) and Dual Link (2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz).
Note: The maximum resolution of your video source and video destination are ultimately determined by the technical specifications of the devices. The connector type is not a definitive indicator of the maximum resolution.
DVI-A carries only analog (for example, VGA) with no digital component. DVI-D carries only digital video (for example, HDMI) with no analog component. DVI-I combines DVI-A and DVI-D connections to include both analog and digital components. A DVI-I port may be on either your video source or display, but whether or not a display carries either or both analog and digital sources depends on the technical specifications of your device.
