I just got the ASUS Xonar Essence ST Soundcard. The reviews said it was easy installation, I guess I am an amature, which is true, I'm fairly an amature with all the sound terms and stuff. I have 4 connectors that I connect to my MB, how am I suppose to connect them all to the SC? They are Green, Pink, Orange, and Black. The card has A Front Right Port and Left Port, which a cable came with it connects the Red and White the sound card, and the other side goes to a one green connector which I assumed my Green Connector would go to. My Pink connector is the Microphone, so I used the adaptor that came with the card to connect that, what about the Black and Orange connector? The other connections the SC has, is for Headphone, which is also one of those Thick connectors same as headphone but it came with adaptor, the last one is SP/DIF Out, which does not fit my Connectors, they are the size of a VGA TV connections.
On top of this, it messed up my PC so I had to take it out
But I got the PC running again, I want to know how to connect this thing before I put it back in.
I have a 5.1 sound system. Can anyone help me? Did I get the wrong Sound card?
