Question External Soundcard Fails on Windows 10

Hey guys, I made this account just to ask this one question, as I could not find it ANYWHERE on the internet.
So I have a Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Surround Pro 5.1 and it is a great soundcard, which I have had no problems with on Windows 8 or Windows 7.
On Windows 10 however, I can use it for an amount of time, say 30 minutes and then the sound will just stop, and it gets worse than that...
It's not only the sound that stops but every kind of media (videos) and it will only come back if I unplug and plug the card back in, if I restart the pc or if I just use the integrated soundcard (which is broken).
So what can I do? I have tried the troubleshooting tool, I have tried messing with the device manager and it feels like there is nothing else to do.
Also, the sound IMMEDIATELY crashes if I open the Netflix app for some reason...
Can anyone help?
Thanks!
