Default Help with guitar recording direct to DI

Hi guys. I hope this is the right thread to post these questions. I just bought an Mbox 2 and currently using PT 7. I am a newbie with Digi products, so I hope you guys can help me with some of these probelms I've encountered.

1. How can I achieve louder signal in my guitar recording? (Currently I'm using an Epi LP plug direct into DI on input 2) the sound ain't loud and when I increase the 'gain",the headphone vol and "arm" the track, this happened;

2. I can hear "hissing" sound and when I increase the headphone vol and the gain, the noise gets louder.. (does it have to do with grounding/cables/etc?)

What can I do??

(Fyi, the mic XLR inputs are great, no noise, clear signal..good preamps)

Thanks.

hi..i've found out about the hissing sound problem already, the culprit it seems, was my cable. and after changing it with a planet wave cable, the sound is clearer, and louder...anyway, thanks again for reading.
