spdif output not happening


i'm trying to get spdif output to work so i can connect my pc to my onkyo amp.

full set-up at present:

windows xp mce 2005
nvidia purevideo decoder
7600gs gfx card
basic sound card with spdif out.

i know the sound card is working as i lets my plug a cable into the green port on it and i get sound, why cant i get spdif to work. i'm getting nothing not even a little red light from it.

i've tried every setting i can think of and everthing i can find on the web i must be missing some software or have something setup wrong somewhere. the only thing i haven't tried is changing the reg setup but i dont kno what i'm doing there so dont want to. can anyone help? on here, over the phone, face to face? this is really bugging me as i've sorted the rest (i think)

Have you got high def (audio) drivers installed.

I got mine from realtek. It was the only thing that kicked my spdif into action.


just sorted it. got the realtek drivers and an older version of the drivers for my sound card. no it works perfectly :D i'm one happy man on the audio front. only problem now is i cant play .AVI files for some reason. :(
