When making programmer first time allways try to make a parallel port based programmer,JDM programmers have different problems because they use computers serial port's power to power the programmer and some serial port doesnt provide that much power, like in some laptops have serial port but use very low power as they are battery operated so that will not work.On the other hand parallel port programmer have external power supply so they work properly.

Microchip provided pc based parrallel port programmer named as "AN589" you can search it on microchip's website

A AN589 based programmer from Oshonsoft http://www.oshonsoft.com/picprog.html

Good Luck
