I have a Soundblaster SE card in my XP/SP3 machine, and all the software that I got with it from Audigy. Can someone tell me where (in any of the Creative programs, or in some Control Panel option) will I find a way to disconnect a file association from the way it is played, and where will I find the info for basic configuration, e.g. whether output is mono or stereo? I've looked at all the Creative software I can find on this computer, and I cannot find anyplace to do that. I also cannot find anyplace in Control panel that does the trick.
I need this info for 2 reasons:
1. I put a CD into one of my drives and decided to use Soundblaster (or Audigy, or Creative, or whatever the proper name is), and a screen came up saying something about associations between file types and ???.
I was not paying close attention and thought I might need to click some things to associate a file type (e.g. aiff) with ???. Before I did this, all sound I played came through both speakers. Now, all sound comes only thru 1 speaker!!!
2. Even before I did this, somewhere there was a setting that took the input from any device attached to the SB card (e.g. tape, turntable) and turned it into a mono, 1-channel-only file.
Thanks, folks. ARGH!!! <hitting self in head for stunning stupidity>
