I ran a sound check using my soundcard software and all speakers are working fine, but when I play mp3's I can only get sound from front right and front left speakers with the sub, back left and back right speakers with the sub, or center speaker with the sub. I have a Sound Blaster Live 24Bit soundcard if it is any help.

mp3 = stereo file. 2 channels only, so L/R fronts and sub makes perfect sense. unless your running it through some dolby decoder, which can simulate fake surround, but it does weird things to the music.
if your full surround works for games, movies, etc your fine.

Other sound files aren't working either. I tried a game i had and it plays the same way as mp3's. It used to play mp3's in 5.1 but I had it disconnected for a while yesterday and when I reconnected it I started having problems.

check your settings in sound and audio devices under control panel. make sure its your speakers are selected to 5.1 surround.
does creative have some kind of user interface program for the surround sound settings?

if you disconnected the speakers, make sure they are all hooked back up correctly. sometimes a simple reboot of the pc will sort audio issues out as well.

Tried the first option, but no luck, was already on 5.1. There is an interface, but nothing I found would show differently to my knowedge that it was set up for anything other than 5.1 surround.

I checked, double check, and even triple checked the connections to no prevail. Everything seemed right, and a installation manual showed the same thing. The reboot also was a dead end. :tazz:
