I was having the same problem; Itunes was playing and only the FL, FR and Sub were working. I used this solution and it did no work at first; I restarted iTunes and then this solution took effect.
So if you're running anything restart it and it'll work.

Thanks so much for this :)

I had the same problem with my creative 5.1 sound blaster.

I downloaded the software from the following link and it worked. Try the link below.

I have windows 7 build 7100 too and also have logitech x-540 (5.1) speakers. Windows 7 keeps dumbing the 5.1 audio to 2.1 ='( unless I use matrix (but that doesn;t really fix the problem).... Tell me when there is a fix please =)

I've found a solution. Try using the beta driver (Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi series driver 2.18.0013) from Creative website. The link is this one

Hope it helps :)

What OS are you running ? Vista has 32 and 64 bit ! I have the X-fi 7.1 but I use 5.1. Firstly, I have a duel boot system. My first is xp32 bit and the X-Fi is superb ! Downstream mix also ! However my second drive used to have Vista ultimate 64bit, which well as any Vista user knows, it's not all that good (being polite) and the X-Fi did not work to it's full potential, no creative console or downstream mix. ( dolby suround was still great)
Dumped the Vista 64 and replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate (with mce) at also 64 bit.
Still X-Fi does not have the same potential of use as with xp32bit. It's just a Windoze problem and until the Mfr's like Creative pull their fingers out of their rearends and give existing users some new drivers, then there's nowt you can do.
