    Do you get the same message with the disk that came with the card????

    Try this;

    Uninstall the sound card, and all its associated components, in "device manager".

    Shut down the computer, and remove the card.
    Restart, and go into the BIOS, and disable, the on-board sound.

    Restart/ shutdown, and install the sound card, and the drivers.

    You may want to bypass the windows "detect new hardware/install", on start up, and use the program on the disk to install the drivers, and programs after windows starts.

    Last most cards have a control panel, that you set what plug dose what, as well as a program that will set this up, and test it.

    No.
    Don't post your E-mail, unless you like spam.

    Others may know more than I do, and posts here will get more results.

    Did windows find the card, when you reinstalled it?
    Again, do you get the same message, with both the down loaded version, and the CD version, of the drivers?

    First of all, WHAT OPERATING SYSTEM are you running? Windows XP or Windows Vista Or 7?

    The driver link BigBoneHead linked to above are for Windows 7 & Windows Vista, if your running XP, you will need specific XP drivers.

    ok, then you have the right drivers.


    As to helping, probably not much, I don't use Creative Products, I stopped using them with the Audigy 4 Sound card I had on my Windows XP machine, 4 years ago, have been using my HT Omega Striker 7.1 Sound card since.

    I got sick of Creatives Crappy driver support, and other Infamous Crackling and popping and general sound quality issues and problems they always faced. Creative does nothing to fix them, other than release another "revised" Crappy product expecting consumers to shell out more money for a replacement, basically milking users for their money. rather than actually FIX the problems.

    at least on their series of sound cards in the $75 and on up range.

    Anyways, the settings and controls for sound cards differ from product to product, I know how to set up MY sound card, but as to yours, not sure.

    but as was said, you should be able to set it up via the sound cards configuration control panel.


    Looking at this video: Unboxing Of Creative SBS A520 5.1 Surround speaker system video on CastTV Video Search

    Seems you need to have 3 audio connectors plugged into your sound card.

    Which means you'll need to configure the sound card to convert some of the output connectors to plug in the audio connectors from the speakers.

    Unfortunately I can't help with that, I know there is some configuring that needs to be done on the sound card itself via the software to allow audio out from the respective jacks to the appropriate speaker connections, for front channels, rear channels and subwoofer. But My Sound card, I use a Single Coaxial Digitial SPDIF output to my 500W 5.1 Home Theater Receiver for my sound system, so I only have a single Output connector to connect to my card.

    I've been doing this now for 5 or 6 years since my first 5.1 Home Theater I had (Some generic 100-150W unit), either using Coaxial Digital out, or Optical TOSLINK digital out put.

    And even before that I never used a Speaker setup that required more than one connection, usually mine had a 3.5mm SPDIF output connector, or I used a 2.0 or 2.1 Setup with a regular single analog connector.


    This is my current Card: HT Omega - Striker7.1

    So as you can see its a whole different beast altogether. The card itself is at least 3 to 4 years old, so most cards in its price range or higher are going to be better as well, the only card higher than it that existed before it or about the same time is the X-fi, though that's the original X-fi, not the newer variants.


    My sound card also has a way of configuring the input connectors and various outputs to use a set of speakers like your Creative speakers, but where its located in my cards setup menu's, I'm not sure, I remember stumbling across them once or twice over the years setting up the cards output and what not, but they'd be located differently in the software than your creative sound cards software anyways, and would be of little help.

    Never mind, I just found my settings, there's a separate program for mine that allows me to setup my Audio output (number of channels, DSP mode, Output mode which allows me to change from Analog to Digital and number of speakers as well as the connectors to use on the card), if memory serves me right my Audigy 4 on Windows XP has a similar setup, different layout, etc, but had similar options to enable for audio output on it as well.
