Well.. at this point it's kinda offtopic if your audio driver works and your speakers make sound if you test them.
Your "music" is probably .mp3 encoded. That means it can only be stereo not 5.1. What you are looking for is a 5.1 .ACC encoded audio file. For instance try to watch a DVD movie with 5.1 sound. I know they have a plugin for winamp where you can clone your front speakers with the rear ones so all speakers play, only that it's still 2.0 stereo. I don't remember the plugin name so don't bother asking me.
Hope i could help you.
