S/PDIF on SoundBlaster X-FI Gamer

  1. I have a SoundBlaster X-FI Xtreme Gamer sound card, and want to plug in my Wireless Sony headphones using optical (the receiver of the headphones that is) cable. However, the cable has a square shape end (as does the headphone receiver), and the card doesn't have a port like that- my motherboard does, so for the moment, i have to use that. The X-FI says it has S/PDIF out, and that is an option in the audio devices menu, and one of the ports on the card glows red, but it is something like a 3.5mm jack. Is there an adapter or different cable i can get?
