I've tested a couple of games (both WHDLoad and with their own installers) and haven't noticed any issues. But I'm not really a gamer so my sample size will be pretty small.

It might be worth adding the SD card to a WinUAE installation using a card reader and see if you have any more luck detecting it there (remember to run WinUAE in administrator mode).

It was less a case of games and software demonstrating stereo, than not going out of their way to create mono sound. To output mono, you need to use twice as many channels as a single left or right...
