Wrong sound card in KMix

I have two sound cards : a bad one on the mainboard and a creative PCI.
The sound card used in KMix is not the one i want to use. I can't find where i can select the good one. Mixer applet do not propose me the good card. And I saw no option in the control center.

If someone can help me...

Perhaps your modules.conf needs to be altered, im not sure and i hope that this helps you. maybe you should post ur modules.conf.

wrong sound card in kmix

Well, this is not a driver problem since this soundcard works fine. I can hear sound from it.
But KMix doesn't allow to modify volume and other parameters, and volume level is very low with KDE apps.

KMix help pages talk about mix console (to select the number of cards detected) in configuration center, but i haven't this element in my own configuration center.
It's very strange.
