Unhappy ordered these non-oem accessories for my vision m-did i make a mistake ?

i have a 60gb zen vision m which i have been using from 1 year and i ordered this and this cause i got them cheap and my friend was coming from america...

but after having read on this forum as well as on epizenter.net that these non oem cables dont work well and sometimes kill the player, i feel i shouldnt have ordered them...but these items have already shipped to my friend's address in usa and i cant return them..

any advice?

edit:also if i wanted to buy i sync cable and av cables without the dongle, which would you guys recommend?
not too costly ones please...anything within 15$ is fine...

Chances are, those things will be just fine; however, after we experienced a rash of problems related to one particular line of direct-plug charging cables, I have taken the position of not recommending or endorsing any direct-plug cables for the ZVM, and I approach these things with extreme caution.

I agree with ZenChick on this. The ZVM can be pretty sensitive to charging power. The dongle acts as a good protector and seems to be more cooperative with charging currents. Although one may be good to have around for testing for dongle issues, I wouldn't use one all the time as the only source for charging. It seems there have been too many "hit or misses" with people using them for me to feel comfortable with using one all the time.
