My Dell laptop's sound jack broke, and I'm looking to get a PCMCIA sound card so I can play external audio again. What works with Ubuntu? I don't want to spend too much money.

If you can find one, probably any one of the models from Creative will perform satisfactorily. If you go to Newegg, http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=PCMCIA+sound+card&x=0&y=0, you will see of the nine listed, none are available. You might be more successful finding what you are looking for on ebay.

Good luck.
