Basically ive broken the audio jack on my current laptop. So i now cannot my external speakers to my laptop in that way. The speakers have an AUX jack in them, so is there any cable which can connect laptop to the speakers via USB to AUX?

So far i've found this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...sb+aux&x=0&y=0

But from what i can gather that will can only be used to connect your iPod to speakers and computer at the same time. And not to just connect laptop to speakers.

Im not sure im in the right place here, and as you can tell im not great with this stuff. So any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

there are also usb to audio adapters like this ( have no idea whether they are good or not but gives you back your headphone jack via a usb output.)

Why can't I link video via laptop usb to HTDV usb?
I can burn a video file to USB stick and then insert that stick in my new HDTV's usb port, and the television recognises and plays the file. So it seems reasonable that a wireless (perfect) or wired (ok too) connection could be made to stream the content. No? I keep looking at the USB wifi...
