I thought I had posted this before, but can't find it now??

We want to play our external CD player and MP3 through our
new computer, it has 7.1 surround!!

We have a cord to plug the players into the linein, but
how do you make it play on the speakers??

We have been messing with this for several months and no luck
at all!!

It has a setting to assume that all files are 7.1 and the
files that are on the computer sound great!!

It has so many panels and setting, it will drive you nuts!!

It is a soundblaster card BTW, and they said, just get a male/male
cord and hook the two togeather, but they won't tell us what settings
to use!!
