The majority of cd's are recorded in stereo. so any surround effect will be simulated by your C media software the simulation is unlikely to include the centre channel.

Generally you will find that the centre speaker will not become operational until 5.1 sound is played. Test using a DVD and you should get sound from the centre speaker.
