I have the same problem and the silly thing is I have used it. Ridiculous that you can't find a manual on it. Well, I have solved it!!!!

our problem is we open the stapler and stare straight down into the cavity. But if you angle it, you can see that there are grooves along the side which the head of the brads would hang and slide along.

1. on one side of the stapler it will say "load brad this side"
2. open the chamber and place the stapler on its side with the aforementioned side down
3 place your strand of brads in the appropriate groove and close the chamber
4 start shooting

How to use it with nails? Is there some attachment it needs?

No attachment needed.The nails are inserted just like the staples are. You can only use the nails that are made for it of course. If you look at the front where the staples come out,there should be a little picture of a nail on one side.That is the side the nails go in, heads towards the stapler, just like the staples. The nails will only fit and function from one side of the unit.

Refilling the staple gun

The staples do not go on the bar you pull back but directly into the bottom once you have pulled the bar back. I was trying to put the staples on the bar at the back and push them into the stapler.
