Laptop soundcard help

I purchased this laptop on Black Friday for a great deal and am looking for an affordable external sound card:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...Specifications

My main transfers will be DAT->7 pin->Digital coax so I need a card that has digital coax inputs if possible.

I would also like to have a firewire input but am not sure if this would be possible. Can the SD card input be used for a firewire input?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Thanks for the response, that's what I was afraid of.

Is there such thing as an coax->USB setup?

Re: Laptop soundcard help

edirol ua-1ex has s/pdif in/out & is affordable and performs well fwiw... not sure about a coax usb soundcard, maybe m-audio has something with this?

for firewire that's a whole other thing, I've got an inexpensive 'laptop kit' made in china which includes a firewire>usb adapter so it shouldn't be hard to find something like this.
