If you have audio cables from your source connected to the capture card, then your Recording device needs to be the Line In of the capture card.
If you connect the source to the Line In on the computer, then you use that as the default recording device. Until I set this, the default audio recording device was my microphone (not connected at the time). In Windows, you need the Manage Audio Devices Recording tab. (In Windows 7 and 8, it's under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices.)
If you are recording something playing on your computer, then the stereo mix option may work.
You should be able to use any video&audio software if the drivers are compatible. Thus the software you used for the video recording should work. (Stereo mix may be an exception - not all sound cards actually work when you try to record that content.)
In Protools go into hardware setup and make sure that your interface is being read properly. It may be set to something other then your fast track. Then, in the MIX window make sure that your input is set correctly. If your microphone is plugged into input 1, your input on your protools track should correspond to that.
Have you been able to successfully do this in the past? What software are you using to try to record with? Does it seem to recognize the guitar in the software, just will not react, or does it not appear to see it at all?
first of all you want to have your guitar amp at a decent volume but too loud, just enough to be able to get a good signal. when you have done this turn up the gain on your mic channel so that your VU meter (level meter) on the recording software shows a reading of about half way up the meter. If you can not achieve this with the soundcard alone increase the gain on your channel in the software.
This sound guarantee a good signal but as with most recordings you will still have to boost the signal without it peaking. to do this use a compressor or a limiter and turn the gain up. if you use these dynamic effects correctly you will achieve the guitar level you want.
