Configuring USB audio device as SPDIF output

I have a USB to SPDIF converter that is supposed to support 5.1 surround.
I can hear stereo sound, but not 5.1 surround.
I know there are many free tools that enable passthrough on spdif so the receiver does the dedcoding instead of the PC.
However windows 7 doesn't see the USB audio device as SPDIF
is there a way to configure the USB audio device as SPDIF without drivers?

Thanks,
Ben

So, which Windows OS is this?

You have posted this same post here, in the Vista forum, and the XP forums.

That's two too much. Let us know which OS you are using by posting a reply here, and if necessary I will unlock whichever other post is relevant.
