USB vs. SPDIF/coax

I have an E-Mu 0404 USB audio interface which has both s/pdif and usb. My computer has s/pdif also . Does it matter which I'm using? I'm under the impression that the E-mu is simply sending file packets (not really streaming audio - so quality isn't an issue) right??? Would it be better to use s/pdif over usb? Is there any benefit?

Also, I hearing a lot of popping and clicks. Is this a buffer issue?

I have WIN 32 - running on Vista and Reaper.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
