Windows 7: Trying to connect two monitors via hmdi and dvi d -error message

Trying to connect two monitors via hmdi and dvi d -error message

Hi again,

performed a search and couldn't find this, but i am trying to connect a new second monitor via dvi d dual link cable, however i get an error message that ccc cannot support two monitors from different graphic engines, the other monitor is connected via hmdi.

i was under the impression that dvi d and hmdi would work together from the graphics card, but this appears not to be the case.
I can have them both running via hmdi/dvi i or dvi d and dvi i but not hmdi dvi d.

Is this right or am i missing something obvious?

A little info: Are there any differences between DVI and HDMI?. I have used HDMI and VGA for dual setups but I've never tried what you are trying to do.
