Looks like a serial port programmer to me...Probably a JDM or an RCD clone.. both work pretty much the same using the serial port lines to power the programmer(cant see a dc supply jack)

The s/w on the cd should tell you how to use it...Is there a Readme file?

You can use it to program pic chips, but it depends on the software supplied as to which ones are supported.
If its a JDM clone then there is plenty of software out there that can be used with it...Ponyprog soft supports JDM and has a comprehensive list of supported devices

Could you post up a list of the files on the CD?

Programming is fairly easy once you have done it a couple of times... load your hex file and program the chip... ( Assuming you already have a compiled hex file)

Silly question:
Did you connect to the serial port on your computer? ;)
Did you try and manually set the serial port to the one you plugged it in to?
How many serial ports are listed in control panel and did you try them all?

Do a forum search for JDM, lots of folks have trouble with those. Also contact the seller or manufacturer. Can you post its schematic?

Also you could try PonyProg software see if it works.

You need to answer the questions asked rather than keep asking the same thing. kcriste asked very relevant questions, can you answer them.
