double check your speaker connections . . . sounds like something might not be connected properly.
As well, when in "headphone" mode, volume settings are lowered - go into WIN and double check each channel's individual volume slider.

And when i plug my HD audio cable from the frontpanel into the card, when i use my mic in the frontpanel then I get a huge looping of sound when i use my mic. But when i plug my mic into the soundcard in the back the problem is solved. What can be causing this?
double check your recording channel in WIN console and Creative's console launcher, make sure it's not "line-in" (line_in only works at the back of the card).
Check your microphone volume settings in console launcher and in XP.
As well, make sure that under 'settings' in Console Launcher that it's set to "auto detect headphone/mic"

In my second computer I have an Audigy 2 Platinum which works fine through the line in on the breakout box (full effects in Cubase and as standalone), however the sample rate is 48mHz.
As to Emu not Creative, Creative now own Emu. I have pretty much decided to dump Creative and go with an M-Audio Delta 1010LT card but still considering possible alternatives.
Well, yes, Creative do
own E-Mu, but . . . E-Mu are allowed to operate independantly . . . (think like how ATI is to AMD).
TBH, it's E-Mu's technological advancements that have made the majority of Creative's new hardware possible. The Audigy series DSP is actually an E-Mu DSP with Creative's label over it, same with the X-Fi APUs.
