Alesis DM6 EZ drummer setup on Mac


I plugged my Alesis DM6 into my Macbook with via USB cable. I can detect the device in my Mac MIDI settings (it comes up as e-drums) however, it doesn't register any actual drumming. Same deal in EZDrummer 2, it knows that there is a MIDI device connected but I can't seem to use it properly.

Any tips on how to set this up right?

Also... If I turn the DM6 off and then on when it is still connected to the Mac and play the bass drum repeatedly, EZDrummer recognises the drumming for about 5 seconds and then it cuts out.
