Recording electronic drums

Hey people, I'm trying to record my drummers electronic drum kit via midi. I have no issue recording audio, but it's the midi information that I can't seem to lay down. I've never plugged a midi instrument before so I'm not sure if I'm doing everything correctly.
I'm using a midi cable from the drum unit straight into my sound card which is connected to the computer. I've ignited my midi connections in the advanced prefs setup. I am definitely receiving signal from the kit via midi connections. If I connect a kong to the midi output, the pads on the kong light up with each pad strike on the electronic drum pads. Clear signal and I can hear the audio. So why can't I record the midi information in the sequencer on that drum channel?

Thanks
Dean
