Hilti SMD57 Screw Gun Attachment

I picked one of these up for my SD2500 screw gun and cannot figure out how it works. The instructions are of little help.

I got it set up per the instruction and when I try to drive a screw it just wobbles around in the track when I try to push in.

I thought the screw would remain rigid until the bit hit the screw and that is not the case. If you are the least bit out from straight when trying to drive a screw the screw cants in the track and makes it un-drivable.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to use it properly?

Are you 100% sure the right bit for that screw is in it?
The only trick I use is to not pussy foot around when installing the screw. To little pressure or backing off when pushing down and it will mess up.
Slam bam thank you mamm and move on to the next screw.
