Confused a little on the back of my sound card I got 6 jacks.

An orange = sub and center
A black = rear speakers
A green = front speakers
A pink = microphone
A blue = Line In

but then beside that I have a white one. My sound card didn't come with any documentation but the little info that I have found it says something like digital out.

BTW my sound card is a Sound Blaster Audigy 2

My last card had a white plug and it was for the headphones. You will need the card's custom software to seperate the speaker's sound control from the headphones.

I believe the white connector is described as "Digital I/O (for stereo SPDIF output to Digital I/O Module". SPDIF can be, apparently, either optical or copper. I'm not familiar with SPDIF but I think this signal is a digital composite of all the individual channels which a surround sound receiver can decode and output to speakers.

There appears to be different kinds of Audigy 2 cards out there - an exact model number would help a lot. Does it look like this Audigy 2 Value model ?
