Shouldn't that be up to your sound card driver?

My sound card driver is ok and configured to use only digital output, i also use powerdvd as a dvd player and its working fine,
but i just have a problem that i dont have a software that can play dts audio, most of audio softwars i knoe doesnt have the ability to use s/pdif.

If I understand you correctly, you actually mean DTS Audio DVDs? To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a DTS Audio CD, as the Redbook specification doesn't allow this.

In this case, you don't just need S/PDIF but also a plugin to read Audio DVDs.

I think there is a cheat involving writing an AC3 file as an audio CD track, and then hooking up the CD player to a AC3-capable decoder (usually a DTS one).

Interesting. Is such a cheat transparent so it'll still sound okay through traditional amp?

Unfortuantly not, unless you like speaker-killing noise.
