In control panel it always shows under the speaker icon that I have 5.1 speaker system. So I go and select quadraphonic speakers. But then i hop in Desert Combat and all the sudden i must be in 5.1 again because i can't hear anything that should be center channel. So i check and sure enough it is abck at 5.1. If I play movies or whathave you it always goes back to 5.1 any idea why?

Maybe because your Soundblaster control panel is set to 5.1.... You have to select 4 speakers in the Soundblaster control panel....

Using the Standard windows one does not work if u have a second control panel doing what its told...
