5.1 USB sound card with mac?

I am trying to get a Sewell USB sound box to Play the sound from my computer, however I am unable to get anything from the optical port on the sound card. The computer is connected properly, as the volume controls on the box work, and sound does come out of the stereo headphone port, just not the optical, even though the mac is configured to use 5.1 sound. Any ideas?

Have you tried checking whether the optical is presented as a separate output device? (Sound icon in system preferences).

For anyone that has this problem, visit www.dr-lex.be. Click on software and then under Mac OS software CM6206 enabler. This should enable optical out for many soundcards.
