In Stereo mode actually nothing works right now. In 5.1 no matter what color plugs I plug in I never get any sound from what should be the front surrounds, I get center from my center and my left back surround and right back surround come out of my front speakers.

Ok So I have been playing with it some more and I can get the rear surround , center and bass to work in 5.1. I can only get the one front speaker to work, it works as left and right surround but still no audio at all come out when it is saying front and left should be working,

Where would I check for that? I am assuming they are as it worked perfectly fine when I was just using the onboard sound card.

Thank you for the help btw.

Right click the speaker icon in the task bar and click playback devices. Your speaker set up is in there.

One more thing. There's a little button on the underside of the sound card. Make sure it's on USB 2. I don't have a clue what else to try. Good luck.

I will try that tomorrow as I am at work tonight but I did check the settings and it was on 5.1. I am lost, this is getting anoying first I had to RMA two cards that would not fit, yet I had it at a computer store and they tried a random old card and it fit perfect. Now I buy a USB one and it still only works with my headphones.=/

It's needed to connect 5.1 analog speakers or 5.1 analog headphones. The adapter does not come with the sound card for some reason.
