How Do I Make My Audio Interface The Laptop Output? [w/PICS]

Ok, so for a while now I have been having issues getting my laptop to work with my external audio interface (its a Edirol UA-25)

These problems remain but in this thread I am trying to work out how to be able to listen to my laptop output through my audio interface.

It is connected via USB and if I plug my headphones into the phones port I can hear audio input but only output via cubase when I change the audio device to the UA-25.

However, I cant hear any sounds that I play on my desktop, the internet, itunes etc etc as they still come through the laptop speakers.

I bought a mini jack to phono lead and connected it to the L & R outputs of the UA-25 but still cant hear anything other than cubase.

Here is what I get when I open sounds and audio devices via control panel: Picture Link

Is there a way to change the speakers to the UA-25? Also why is there a phone symbol next to the UA-25? Is that affecting anything?

Appreciate any help,

LDn2

PS. Had to link to the photobucket pic as inserting an image isnt working!

If you're vista/win7, then right click on windows volume icon and choose "Playback devices". Under that you'll see your different i/o. Right click on the output you want to be default and choose 'set as default device'. The phone icon represents 'set as default communications device' as this can be a separate setting (and it seems to have defaulted to that output.)
