I purchased the Creative Audigy 2 ZS from newegg last week when they had a $30 mail in rebate offer for it, reducing the price to only $75. Installation was relatively easy and I love the sound quality over my previous onboard sound.

I have one problem with it though. My computer case has a front audio panel with minijack ports for headphones and microphone. It had 6 small connectors that connected to pins on the motherboard. When I installed my new card and disabled the onboard sound in the bios, these ports no longer worked. I expected that, but I can't find anywhere in the documentation that was included with the card or on the internet explaining how to hook up those ports now.

Anybody else have experience with this and know what to do? I can provide pictures of the internal connectors for the ports if anybody needs, but they are just the standard small black plugs similar to the ones used for the power and reset buttons, front LEDs and internal speaker.

I have checked the Creative website and I couldn't find any help. The closest I could find is http://dmzweb4.europe.creative.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=144,E=0000000000065541950,K=9901,Sxi=0,Case=obj(3026),Kb=ww_english,VARSET=ws:http://us.creative.com/. It shows all the pin assignments for the AUD_EXT pins on the board, and I am guessing those are the pins I would have to hook the connectors up to, but I would rather not use trial and error and risk damaging anything.
