I downloaded the A2 ZS driver from the creative website

I have the model with the 5.25 front and am trying to hook up the optic out... I have a power connection installed that is a molex to a 4 pin.. In the picture from newegg is a dual molex to 4 pin... I grabbed the one i am using from misc parts and I thought it would work.. My theory was that perhaps i needed a dual molex to 4 pin... if that even us a different from just one molex ...

I should have posted "problems" in the title....

It used to work on a old board I had... but not this newer one... with win 7...

I am curious if it needs a dual power molex to a version of a four pin for the secondary 5.25 unit because it houses the optical


I loaded drivers am able to access in sounds in control panel but am completely unable to get sound through the optic out of the rear pci slot.


I see a light from the optical out...no sound though!!! im hurting!!!
