Hi all

I have a soundblaster 5.1 soundcard, to identify it i used control panel and the device is stated as ES1371. It has 3 coloured outputs and a mic input (so i know its definately capable of sending out 6 channels of sound :p)
I bought it about 18 months ago and always used the standard XP pro driver, because I only used it with a cheapo set of speakers.

Now i've got a megaworks 5.1 speaker system, but I can't hear all the channels :(
I play Battlefield 1942 and want to get the full effect but I only get the front left/right and subwoofer..

Can someone hook me up with a driver for this as I've looked everywhere and they all seem to be live! or audigy, which won't work :(

Also are there any other settings I need to enable?

Many thanks in advance.

Use the drivers from Sound Blaster..

Test your speakers with a DVD movie.. NOT a game. Even the Audio HQ tests can be wrong.
Be sure windows is also set to 5.1..

So it uses the analog (all 3 plugs) huh?... OK, test it with a movie.

I would think a setup that uses the "Digital out" would be better, but I'm still using the crappy quadraphonic setup.. No sub :down: :(
