Tosklink Digital Output Leads

Can I use Digital Audio optical leads, to down load from a source to the USB socket. On the Sansa clip

Or would I need a Digital to Analogue converter between the two.

Many Thanks In advance

The Clip communicates via standard USB interface only (two DATA lines, serial).  To go optical would involve some major changes to the device.  Remember that while connected, the Clip makes use of the 5v USB bus power to charge its battery, so why not simply employ two more contacts for data?
