Pretty difficult to diagnose from the information. but are you sure 
that you are actually recording through the interface? I've run into a 
similar situation before. Make sure that interface is selected in both 
the Audio Midi set-up utility and Sound System preferences.
Software wise, you can't go wrong with Audacity. available at ;  
Also take some time and google up some articles on basic audio 
recording available on many web sites, including mine.
