Default Aother resolution question: Only 1280 X 800 option on Apple Cinema Display 30-Inch

Only resolution option avaiable is 1280 X 800 on Apple Cinema Display using NWTVIDU3HDMIDV USB 3.0 to HDMI/DVI adapter.

Conguration:
Macbook Pro 17 inche Mid 2010 running OSX 10.9.1
Apple Cinema Display 30 Inch
NWTVIDU3HDMIDV USB 3.0 to HDMI/DVI adapter
System information file attached as ZIP

Problem:
Opening Settings, Displays and the only option under Resolution, Scaled is 1280 X 800.

Attempted solutions:
I have tried holiding alt/option to show other resolution options, as per previous posts, but no other options show.

I was expecting the max resolution to be per specs @ 1920 x 1200.

Assistance would be appreciated.

That display only advertises 2 modes:

1280x800x24@60
2560x1600x24@60

2560x1600 will only be supported with a DisplayPort connection. Through HDMI/DVI 2560x1600 will not be available, so the only other resolution supported is 1280x800.

You will need a USB to DisplayPort adapter to get the maximum resolution from this display. There are some listed in the DisplayLink shop:
