Hi David - the headunit you have is a standard Philips 22DC461 - which is compatible with earlier, analogue type, Renault Alpine changers (or the Philips / VDO equivalents). I can't see it properly in the pictures, but the connection should be a 10 pin ISO socket, with 9 pins present, with the middle pin of one row missing.

Although I can only see 8 pins in the CD changer connection socket (there must be 9), the layout of them already says it's a later type Renault Alpine digital changer - suitable for "Tuner List" type headunits, but not the earlier 22DC461.
Overall, I'm afraid the 2 units are not compatible electronically (1 anaolgue and 1 digital), and cannot be used together, with or without an adapter. Sorry.
