    I have E-MU 1800 series sound card for my desktop, which is primarily disigned for music production. I have upgraded to a laptop and I am selling parts of the desktop because I have no use for it. I do not have the dough to buy an extrenal sound card for my laptop, making me unable to use the PCI soundcard and am curious if there are external PCI slot enclosures which will route the PCI board via USB to my laptop? Thanks in advance.

    i;m sure if you find something that will convert pci to usb with an external enclosure, it will be expensive
    sell your existing card and buy an external card for the laptop

    i need a pcmcia to usb adapter to connect a verizon cellular internet card to my macbook (i lack the pcmcia slot)...well, it would be around $250 for that, ouch

    How ironic would it be if the SB Extigy is just a SB Audigy in an external PCI-to-USB enclosure? :rofl:
