When I trade real time the volume in the time and sales window shows very low volume normally 1,2 some times 4 volume. When I replay the same time period I get completely different volume numbers ranging from 1 to hundreds. I am assuming that the replay is correct. what is happening to the volume in the real time trading?

What you see in real time is correct.

What this is an indication of is that the historical data is not tick by tick.

Follow the instructions here:

However, in the case of Interactive Brokers historical data from Interactive Brokers will not be tick by tick since they do not have that.
