SONY TCD DAT: Transferring digital files directly into a PC

I had wanted to directly import DAT files from my SONY  TCD-D10 DAT
recorder into my PC. I inferred from some prior postings on this listserv
that earlier shipments of that model came with  separate cables for
digitally outputting from the DAT recorder via   S/Pdif and AES/EBU. Mine
only came with a AES/EBU output cable.  After tracking down SONY
professional equipment at their new address/phone in Calif., I found that
the  S/Pdif  cable for the DAT recorder  is  no longer made.

So with help from several people on this listserv, I finally found a simple
box (CO3) that   toggles  input or output among  3 formats:   S/Pdif,
AES/EBU, and an optical TOSlink format.  I connected the DAT recorder's
AES/EBU cable  into the box and then connected the  S/Pdif output from the
box to a USB cable (Edirol UA-1D) to transfer the file.  It seems to work
well.  Thanks for everyone's help.
