    You would probably get a quicker response in the Computer and HTPC section.

    I saw a USB to optical converter that MCMelectronics has for about $40
    That might work

    What sound card does your computer have? Many have internal digital connections even if there is no back plane output. You can connect a simple electrical to optical transducer to one of these if that will do, otherwise a new soundcard is probably the easiest option, and they aren't exactly expensive anymore.
