ALSA driver isnt running

hey guys, i have the sound blaster audigy 2 platinum sound card and for some reason it detected it, (mandrake 9.1) and it says its all good, and is functioning. But sound (mp3's) dont play. Why is this? (i did the sound test with the wierd chiming bells and what not, that worked) Is it that i have to configure mp3 player or what?

Go to your volume control and make sure nothing is mute and everything is "high", and also check your mp3 player, make sure is not mute... This happens a lot...
