Digital noise from soundcard output

Hi

I wondered if anyone can help. I'm recording directly from my Edirol Ua-20 to my Fostex vf160 portastudio. It doesnt have a file transfer option so I have to record down in real time for which i am using phono leads to connect the two devices. The problem comes when the audio is playing there is noticeable digital background noise. I have ordered an optical cable to see if that makes an improvement. I just wondered if there are any products, gates etc..which may also help or audio settings on the pc itself which may reduce/eliminate the problem.

Cheers

I don't think an optical cable is the answer. What kind of "digtal noise"? Jitter, noise floor? It sounds like something inherent with your conversion.
