Instrument tracks not recording data

C7, I have played with every setting I can think of and I get sound before and during playback and sound during record but nothing ever writes to the track. there will be a event that shows up during and after record but no midi data in that event. Please help. Also in c-5 I could drag and drop midi data for BFD onto the track and create a drum track that way, that also no longer works since upgrading to C-7.

Update, got it to work but the only way is to use the virtual keyboard, my usb controller keyboard is not working to record. it will play but no record
