nForce Audio CNR help

I just got a MSI K7N420 Pro system and a set of 4.1 speakers (Logitech Z-560).

I know that to get 2+ channels audio output, I need to use the CNR spf/dif card that came with it (I have it and it's installed) but not matter what I try (I checked a lot of forums and none of the solutions work) I can't get any sound out of the CNR card.

I updated my motherboard BIOS and have the latest nForce drivers.

One of the most annoying thing about the card is that I don't even know if it's installed on my system since I don't know the card's driver name.

What I need mostly is infos about the CNR card since neither nVidia and MSI provide any info other than the card being optional (yes but what if I already have the damn card??!!).

Rich.

Go to the MSI site and download and install the nVidia nForce Unified driver package.

You should probably read this information before installing, depending on your OS.

What motherboard do you have?  Make sure it's a CNR slot your plugging into and not an AMR.  CNR isn't backwards compatible with AMR.
