There must be another driver at Creative.com, you can download to make that work.

I had a similar problem with the same card. All I needed to do was swap the center speaker white and red plugs i.e red into white socket and white into red socket on the bass/main speaker. I know this sounds daft but I was getting no sound from the center speaker at all and when I swapped them over it worked fine!! Download the latest driver from the Creative site, they got a system dectector program that scans your computer and tells you what you need to download.
