When I test speakers in Control Panel / Sound tab each speaker makes the noise to show it is working, but when I play games, only the front 2 work. These are fairly modern games like Elder Scrolls:Oblivion and X3 Reunion so would have thought they would be encoded with 5.1 surround sound.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.
My mistake - seems now that I've enabled X-Fi CMSS-3D, all speakers are now working.
The description of X-Fi CMSS-3D is that it can turn a stereo sound into a surround sound. It might be synthetically done, so maybe not true 5.1 surround, but it does sound good, and works in Windows Media Player aswell !
