I tried messing around with my soundblaster drivers...but these headphones are not Dolby digital certified..they just do regular stereo.
thanks for the advice on everything so far...
They don't have to be dolby digital certified. Just set your speakers to "headphones" instead of "2.1." in the Creative software. Then enable CMSS 3D surround.
Then, in "Manage Audio Devices" (just search for it, or right click the speaker in the tray and select "playback devices"), set your speakers to 5.1. Then fire up a game and it should work in simulated surround. It's a little strange to set up but that's how you do it. Also make sure the game recognizes that it's 5.1 and not 2.1.
