I/O Drive for X-Fi Sound Card half working. Please

Pain in the rear to get this all to fit too, but I made it work. Installed an X-Fi PCI-E card, works fine from the rear.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi SB0460 7.1-Channel PCI.

On the VX, white noise on playback unless initialized in Windows first.

I've tripple checked all my connections and the only part that stumps me is that there is no plug-in for power? The manual doesn't mention anything about power either so I am assuming it pulls the power from the PCI-E card?

Plugged in the I/O Drive that comes with it (it's the titanium champion edition) and I can get sound out of the headphone jack out front, but the LED's don't lht up and the Volume control nobs don't work either.
