Windows 7: Laptop Expresscard 34 to PCI slot adapter for Sound card

Laptop Expresscard 34 to PCI slot adapter for Sound card

My old Soundblaster Audigy 4 sound card was great, yet now that I switched from desktop PC to my Toshiba 850L laptop, I cannot use this (expensive) sound card anymore and have to put up with inferior sound cards.

Since I am still young and in the past did all my recordings with that card, I searched for the possibility to connect that card to my laptop.
Today I discovered that it might be possible, but chances are that I got it wrong:

From eBay searches I take that I first need to have this "Laptop Expresscard 34", which plugs into USB:
Express Card ExpressCard to USB 3 0 2 Port Adapter for Notebook Laptop PC 34mm | eBay
... which then plugs into this "Laptop Expresscard 34 To 2 PCI slot adapter", with PCI slots for the Audigy 4 soundcard:
Laptop ExpressCard 34 to 2 PCI Slot Adapter Express Card to Sound Graphics Card | eBay
My question is:
Did I understand it rightly? Will it work? I hate to blindly trust eBay sellers.

Thanking you for your good advice!

Why do you need the first item?

Most likely what you need is USB to PCI as your laptop has no express card slot.
