Ipod and Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Surround 5.1 USB


How do I play my Ipod conneting it through Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Surround 5.1 USB external sound card?

The product guide shows that we can connect MP3 players through the Line-in Jack ( in the Sound card) and I followed the following the steps but i could not hear any music. Please help

Step 1: Connected my Ipod to the Creative Sound Blaster X-fi Surround 5.1 USB through the Audio minijack cord and to the Audio Line-in port

Step 2. Played a song and could not hear any thing.

The product manual shows we can connect MP3 players in the same way I connected. I don't understand whats the issue
