Make sure your connected to a rear USB port on your PC. Not a USB hub.

Ok. Those "holes" are actually USB "ports".

 

Rebooted your laptop and tried again to connect?

Try a different desktop PC?

Try the connection with the battery out, with the battery in, and with placing the battery in during the first JL_Cmder attempt to connect.
