How do I get S/PDIF out of Minidisc to input of M-Audio Audiophile 192, [was “Lost in SPDIFs”/TOS #6, even if I do like the pun ;) ]

Hello,


I have a minidisc hi-fi component and a cable I got with a Sony portable minidisc player.
The cable doesn't look like this one but it has similar connections:


The one on the left is what I think is called SPDIF/Toslink, and I can connect it to the hi-fi component.
The one on the right it what I think is called SPDIF.

On the other side, I have and M-Audio Audiophile-192 which has and "SPDIF" input:


No the SPDIF plug on the cable doesn't fit in the soundcard's SPDIF. What am I supposed to look for as an adapter ?

Thank you for your help.

Thank you.
Is this cable actually different compared to a standard RCA cable ?

There are basically two kinds of RCA cables. There are the ones that have a characteristic impedance (75 ohms) suitable for high frequencies, and the other kind that should only be used for audio. If you have an RCA cable meant for video (the ones that connect to the yellow sockets) then that will also work perfectly well as a S/P-DIF cable. Of course, for a short length (1M or less) the audio type will also probably work.
