Soundcard problems.. [C-Media PCI CMI8738-SWIEC]

Hi readers.
I just bought myself a [C-Media PCI CMI8738-SWIEC] card, but it seems to not work :/

Here's my aplay -l output:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: CMI8738SWIEC [C-Media PCI CMI8738-SWIEC], device 0: CMI8738-SWIEC [C-Media PCI DAC/ADC]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: CMI8738SWIEC [C-Media PCI CMI8738-SWIEC], device 1: CMI8738-SWIEC [C-Media PCI 2nd DAC]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: CMI8738SWIEC [C-Media PCI CMI8738-SWIEC], device 2: CMI8738-SWIEC [C-Media PCI IEC958]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Alsa drivers are installed, and i'm using Debian Sarge.

The error while playing a sound is: Input/Output error..

I beg you reader, help me!
