    hello

    as shown in this photo:

    my connector is DVI-D single link

    however it is hard to find such cables (probably outdated), so are there any of the other connectors that appear in the photo, compatible with mine?

    thanks

    What are you connecting to what? DVI-D single link is very common.

    A DVI-I connector (as found on computer display cards) usually will feed DVI-D + DVI-A (VGA) pins.

    A DVI-I to HDMI cable will only use the DVI-D single link pins.

    Having a very similar problem - My laptop has DVI output but only seems to connect to DVI-D (single link).
    I'm trying to connect a laptop to an audio receiver Via HDMI using DVI output from laptop.
    It works with a LCD monitor using DVI-D (single link) but will not work with any other adapter type ie. DVI-A --> VGA or DVI-D (dual link) --> HDMI
    Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?

    Check the laptop specs.

    If you don't have a digital audio optical or coax connector, you will need to use the headphone jack. Some laptops have dual function headphone jacks that pass optical audio with an adapter like this.

    DVI-D to HDMI should work for video. Some late model laptops add audio to DVI-D. You need to read the laptop manual.
