Windows 7: Creative Audigy LS no sound through S/PDIF

Creative Audigy LS no sound through S/PDIF

Heey,

Recentley I bought the logitech Z-5500, along with a lot of cables.
I want to hook up 2 speaker sets to my Audigy LS, my standard speakers and the Z-5500. I connected the standard speakers with the 3 normal 3.5mm jacks. However now I want to connect my Z-5500 to my souncard using the digital input (I/O), I am doing this via a 3.5mm jack to Toslink (optical) and that Toslink cable goes into my Z-5500. Well the problem I am having at the moment is this:
a) Are the creative drivers screwing with my sound?
b) My set up is wrong and I need another approuch.

I definitely hope it's a) because I don't want to buy other cables and wasted 16 euro's on this one >.<. Anyways I hope someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance

Darkside748, welcome to the forums.

Unless your card came with the Optical Digital I/O card, according to this,

what you are trying to do isn't possible.

you are going to have to use a different input than optical for your speakers.

you can't 3.5mm jack to toslink you can however toslink to 3.5mm.

Optical carries its signal from one end to the other over fiber optic cable. So for example you can have your DVD player send the digital audio stream through the cable and have the other end in a toslink to 3.5mm converter to you speakers but you cannot send the stream through the 3.5mm jack converter into the optical cable.
