Default Question about Opitcal Sound on Sound Card

I am looking at getting a better sound card for SuperSonicB!+c# as i really don't like the POS 2.1 that is currently sitting on the motherboard.

Now with optical sound port, does that allow both Optical Play Back and Optical Recording.
Eg. Optical Recording (DEFINATLY) - I would like to record some stuff via the optical. Lets say that i trying to put stuff from my Mini Disc Player pack into MP3 format. Will the recording be in seperate tracks, or will i need to look at some other software for that.

Optical Play Back (Optional) - I would like to put some MP3 over into my Mini-Disc player. Will it automatically put where the tracks start and stop? Or can i get some software that will assist in doing that?

After loosing my music CD wallet last week (with about $300 worth of music in it ), I am seriously looking to backing up my music onto my computer.

Can some one recomend me a sound card?
