i just got the E-MU today, and i set it all up, followed through the setup instructions etc etc, and im sure ive done everything correctly, but when i try to play, i get nothing out of the headphones..

everything is as it should be, direct monitoring is on, headphones are jacked into the headphone jack on the front, but im just not getting any sound.. i can record, but not listen.. if anyone has any experience or can give a guess at the problem, it would be muchly unappreciated.
Who decided that pie would be sold on Tuesday but not Wednesday?
so all playback isnt going into the interface?

control panel
Disable your stock sound card drivers and under the playback tab set the EMU as the default device.
Restart your computer and try it all again to see if it works.

If not, go into the recording program and set the input and output to the interface.

If that doesn't fix it I'm not sure whats wrong but good choice on the E-MU.
