Default Replacement P2 data cable. Ya, I priced it...

So I need a replacement cable for my P2. Maybe you guys have some ideas.

My idea was to call Samsung Canada, after determining not a single store selling the P2 had any accessories. (not a protective cover, nothing) Samsung referred me to Global Electronic Supplies in Mississauga. It took them 4 days to get back to me, since they didn't know what the part number was. (which was great of them actually)

The major problem is the data cable is $26.10 + tax + shipping, which is between $10 and $15. I didn't realize the cable was 20% of the cost of the player!

You know, this kind of pointless crap is enough to make me regret buying the player. There's not a single Samsung accessory for any Samsung player that I can see, let alone one that would warrant a special plug. Isn't like every single cell phone on the market moving to mini-usb plugs? Is there some USB chip in the cable itself that makes the need for anything more than USB wires coming out of the thing?

Any ideas? You might want to think about it incase you lose your cable and find you can't:

a) charge the battery anymore

b) transfer data, because you lost it BEFORE they release the new firmware with Bluetooth file transfer support.
