Darn, If only I read this thread earlier. lol, I bought two cables, one today, and neither work. One was a Zune capable and another an Ipod. I didn't know that there was requirements till I read this, http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...mm-pinouts.php.

Remeber, if it says "The cable can work will all video playback supported Digital Audio & MP3 players.", then don't buy it. I should have known by the pigeon English.

Well, I have the receipt and I plan to buy a IBook Cable from Ebay/Amazon. Thanks.

This AV cable should work?

The price is very good.
I understood that only the original chargers of creative working good with their players, is it true?

Default Got the gear...Dongle free at last!!!!

I just got a complete bundle package on ebay from ishoppingdeals4you.com for $26.88 (US) plus $8.99 shipping. Here's what it has:
  • Package Includes:{All Accessories Bundle For Creative Zen Vision M 30GB}
  • 1xBlack Silicone Case
  • 1xCrystal hard Case
  • 1xAdjustable Armband
  • 1xLanyard
  • 1xExtra Free Gift {LCD Screen Guard}
  • 1xFm Transmitter w/6Channels
  • 1xCar Charger
  • 1xTravel Charger
  • 1x2.0 Usb cable
  • 1x3.5mm Plug Audio Video Cable
  • 1x Premium Headset
Hope it works! I'll let you know....

7/14/07....Well got the gear and I must say being Dongle free from usb port to Zen was worth it right there!!! Av cable works Great!! Fm transmitter works but doubt I will every use it (I use av cable thru car dvd player) The rest of the stuff will come in handy but not much use for most of it. One complaint is the travel charger and car charger are straight in also so using the car charger and AV cables are out. Other then that so far so good...

28 dollars? Wow, I saw it for $100! Good thing I didn't bought it. I also wanted the car charger not to be like that, not to go straight to the Zen ignoring the dongle.

I'm loving the black silicone case, it makes the player look less fat

Okay, guys - this thread is about A/V cables. Let's keep it on topic, otherwise this becomes a confusing mess, then I've got to get my hands all dirty and mess up my hair with that mod hat and... Well, you get the picture.

I can confirm that eBay 30-pin cables (the one with the connector dongle built-in) works! I received mine this weekend, and already tested it... sweet!

What I am wondering is if the video and audio quality are the same as if I used the dongle with a separate cable.

Don't see why not. All the dongle really is is just pin-to-pin circuitry, simply carrying the signals from the data port to their appropriate output pins, and vice versa.

I just got these cables in the mail today, seem to work flawlessly. Cheap too.

But I haven't tried them on the high-def TV yet, just an old TV from the early '90s. I'll watch a couple videos on the main TV when my brother goes to work later. I don't forsee any problems with them though.
