JMTek HY554 USB Sound device - Cant get it to work



I using Mandriva 2009.0 on my laptop.
I bought a "USB 3D sound" usb device off eBay and am trying to get it to work.

At the moment, i have the usb device plugged in and it appears
in lsusb and i have the snd-usb-audio module loaded. When i
go to drakconf and check the hardware that is detected, the
internal soundcard (a realtek) appears in the soundcard section
and looks fine. the usb device appears in the USB sound devices
section and appears fine, but at the bottom in the "Unknown/Others"
section the usb device appears again. When i go to sounds options,
it only shows the internal soundcard. If i go to preferences in the
volume control, to select the output device, it has the realtek card
listed twice, as the snd_hda_intel and the reatek AC880 but no usb device.

Does anyone have any advise?
I can run any commands ye need or upload pics to help.
